The Permatang Pauh by-election promised to be the most bruising, dramtic, dirtiest, costliest and important election of the Malaysian history.
The tactics and strategies used so far are centering on character assasination. It is a contest of survival, be it between Anwar and Najib or Anwar verses the Abdullah government.
So far, words said, things done inside and outside the constituency becuase of the by-election: -
-Swearing on Quran is THE happening thing to do now.
-A former deputy minister claimed that Anwar has harrassed his wife fifteen years ago.
-Najib sweared inside the mosque that he has not met Altuntuya. It is as good as swearing on Quran
-If Anwar becomes PM, "pigs" will replace Malays to be the deputy PM and ministers.
-Anwar said if he wins, 30 Barisan MPs will cross over and he will be a PM for all Malaysians.
-Arif Shah, the BN candidates said he has a Chinese heart (12 years of Chinese education). He considered himself half Chinese half Malay, and also a Mamak.

JESUS said:...Do not swear by your own head either, since you cannot turn a single hair into white or black. All you need say is "yes" means yes, "No" means no; anything more than this comes from the evil one. " (Matt 5:37)
