Incontinence is a sign of biological dysfunction. It is often linked to the lack of voluntary control of excretory functions over urine and faeces. Wikipedia refers to incontinence as leakage that occurs under conditions that cannot be helped or stopped. Largely, they are due to stress and urge.
Patients of incontinence, adults included, are forced to wear diapers to save them the agony of wetting themselves in public.
In these days of political upheavals in Barisan Nasional (BN), it is apparent that Putrajaya must order loads of adult diapers for Abdullah Badawi and his Umno men in Penang. They are all suffering from political incontinence of sorts.
Case in hand is the way Abdullah, the temporary BN and Umno president, losing control over his henchman in Penang, Ahmad Ismail; and the way Ahmad losing control over his followers along the chain of command.
Intentionally and intentionally, racial sentiments are allowed to inflame over the name-calling of Chinese Malaysians as being the 'penumpang' (squatters) in this country.
Protracted over weeks after Umno lost in the August 26 Permatang Pauh by-election, Ahmad twice went on the racial romp, followed by Penang Umno secretary Azhar Ibrahim, who mutated a new issue, demanding for the Sinchew journalist who exposed Ahmad's racial slur to be shot (ditembak).
In the heat of things, Ahmad tongue-lashed at Penang BN chief, ex-CM Koh Tsu Koon, and urged for the expulsion of Gerakan from the 34-year coalition.
'Chinese Malaysians mimic American Jews'
Yesterday, Ahmad chaired his second PC in a week, and was seen to condone his supporters to remove Koh's picture hanged in the Umno Penang premises, and torn in the probing eyes of the journalists, and within the ranges of lenses of the photogs who covered the function.
At the same press conference yesterday, Ahmad warned Chinese Malaysians not to mimic American Jews who not only seek to control the country's economy but also its political power.
By the measure of political theatrics, this is an act that pacifies the filial peers but truly agonises the multi-racial fabric of bystanders.
By the standard of civility, it is a sheer incident of political indecency.
It also indicates the political incontinence that Abdullah is suffering from. He wets himself in public for losing control over his political anatomy.

Taking a realist stance, I do not pity Koh for being humiliated by his partners in the political coalition that he chooses to align with and to remain within. He has been offering himself a slave, rather than equal partner, to Umno all these years. It matters naught even if Gerakan, or for that matter the MCA, chooses to leave BN.
However, I do pity that 51 years of nationhood building has to go down the drain due to nincompoops like Ahmad and Azhar. Their reign of arrogance and tyranny has dealt national unity into disrepair.
Again, Abdullah triumphs by flip-flopping on his authority to stamp ruckus within his household, and submits the country to racial discord. This is not good for Malaysia.
I believe the right way to stop this malaise is that, rather than getting everyone else to leave the coalition -- as Ahmad dictates -- it's best to get all BN component parties to press for the ouster Umno for condoning the uber race politics.
That's is political wisdom that Malaysians sorely lacks.
Cut ties to developers
For Ahmad, who is the Umno Bukit Bendera Division chief, to rebuff the party's chieftains like Abdullah and Najib, it is because he holds sway over delegates who will decide the party's leadership line-up this December. Ahmad's peers at the other 12 divisions saw the same trump card and joined in the fray to ransom Abdullah, who needs their votes to survive in politics.
Secondly, Ahmad and other little warlords at the Umno division level are well funded by Chinese-run and Chinese-owned real estate developers who hooked them on on the gravy train when BN ruled Penang before GE2008.
One way to cut the umbilical chord, if Koh had already known, was to manage these real estate developers at their Achilles' heel. When the life support system is unplugged, the devils of Ahmad die.
BY THE WAY... are you decided to send adult diapers to Putrajaya by the loads?

Diapers will be but flimsy covers to hide the stinking mess and putrid rot that is there regardless of whatever is applied to try to hide the true state of affairs.
Cosmetic dressings and empty spin-doctoring are not going to help.
The patients are now in Stage 4 Terminal Acute Panic. Disease had been grossly mismanaged from the start, and progressed rapidly from Stage 1 Acute Power Greed which progressed to Stage 2 Delusions of Grandiour and declined to Stage 3 Festering Self-Denial.
Better to save the money the diapers will cost, and use some of the money for a wreath as a generous gesture on soon-to-be passing of said patients from the political stage.

I like this tongue in cheek comment:
"...BY THE WAY... are you decided to send adult diapers to Putrajaya by the loads?..."
We all know who is REALLY wearing adult diapers, don't we?
Ahmad and his Penang ball carriers are fishing in troubled waters. They know they have a toothless boss and they are taking advantage of this to play the racial card to bolster their own chances for the coming UMNO elections.
Never mind. Give them enough rope and they will hang themselves. They have done PR a great favour by their antics and all you have to do is to keep reminding these morons once in a while their stupid actions and you can be sure they will do even more stupid things to benefit PR.

Mr. Prime Minister, RACIST Ahmad Ismail MUST Be ARRESTED and CHARGED for Sedition - He CANNOT be ABOVE the Law of the Land
Tuesday, September 09, 2008 10:07
Quote:by Ahmad Ismail, UMNO Division Chief, Bukit Bendera
"I want them (the Chinese) to know, I want them to take this as a warning from the Malays.
Malays and Muslims have been provoked many times. We have been patient because we want to maintain stability in the country.Remember! The patience of Malays and Muslims has its limits.
Do not push us to the wall, where we will be forced to reject the Chinese for the sake of our survival.If what I say sounds too strong for BN, take this as a warning from the Malays and Muslims as this has nothing to do with Umno.
Do not pressure Umno leaders until they are caught in a dilemma."- Ahmad Ismail
Mr. Prime Minister, your UMNO Division Chief for Bukit Bendera, Ahmad Ismail, is making a mockery of the laws of the land, and he, as UMNO Division Chief is now challenging YOUR Government to enforce its own draconian Internal Security Act.Mr.Prime Minister, you and your Cabinet Ministers must show decisive and strong leadership at this crucial moment when one of your senior party members from your own home state questions the spirit of the founding fathers of Malaysia.This is NOT the time for the Government and UMNO to play partisan politics when racial harmony is at a knife-edge.
This IS the time for UMNO to show that it CAN govern the country and it WILL protect the national security of this nation.Racist UMNO members must NOT be allowed to be seen as privileged citizens above the law, especially when offensive remarks aimed at racial incitement are made in public.We urge you to take immediate action: Ahmad Ismail must be arrested and charged for sedition and for inciting racial unrest.
Tun Dr. Mahathir should also come out to DISSOCIATE himself from this racial incitement by Ahmad Ismail, despite Datuk Seri Mohd Khir Toyo in his blog had indirectly linked Dr. Mahathir to the 13 May 1969 racial riot.-Malaysian UnplugRelated News:

Ahmad Ismail Threatens and Provokes Chinese Malaysians and Inflames Dangerous Racial Sentiments Among MalaysRead here in MalaysiakiniPenang Umno leader Ahmad Ismail, the man at the centre of the 'racial slur' controversy, warned Chinese Malaysians not to mimic American Jews who not only seek to control the country's economy but also its political power.The press conference, which was held at the Penang Umno headquarters this afternoon, ended with shouts of 'Hidup Melayu' from about 50 local party leaders who were there.The Bukit Bendera Umno chief said that he was asked by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to hold "another press conference".Abdullah who had earlier told the powerful local Umno leader to do so, was silent on the issue the next day when he met with Penang Umno leaders, including Ahmad.Ahmad Ismail said at the press conference:
"I want them to know, I want them to take this as a warning from the Malays. Malays and Muslims have been provoked many times. We have been patient because we want to maintain stability in the country.Remember! The patience of Malays and Muslims has its limits. Do not push us to the wall, where we will be forced to reject the Chinese for the sake of our survival.If what I say sounds too strong for BN, take this as a warning from the Malays and Muslims as this has nothing to do with Umno. Do not pressure Umno leaders until they are caught in a dilemma."Ahmad also called upon BN leaders to "kick Gerakan.Soon after the event, former Penang Umno committee member Zainol Abidin Hashim, with the help from his colleagues pulled down the photo of Gerakan acting president Dr Koh Tsu Koon which adorned one of the walls in the party headquarters.Koh's picture frame, which sat next to the photos of the Penang governor and his wife, was subsequently smashed.As the glass broke into pieces, Zainol removed Koh's photo from the frame and tore it into half.Ahmad Ismail sounded a dire warning to Koh and Gerakan."I want Koh Tsu Koon and Gerakan to take responsibility for whatever untoward incidents that could happen in this country of ours."
