The Putrajaya Two Step

In the 1994 movie Clear and Present Danger, the hero Dr. Jack Ryan (played by actor Harrison Ford) was ordered by his boss, the President of the United States, to commit perjury in the interest of so called "national security". Ryan flatly refused, saying:

"The Potomac Two Step? Sorry Mr President, I don't dance!"

Of late we have local politicians doing the kuda kepang in their mindless onslaught of bloggers. Perhaps they are just testing the waters.

But we are not dancing either.
