This rebuttal should have been writ two days ago, but it's a case of the spirit is willing, butt badan Desi is weak.
First, let me reproduce the art. by one whose writing woulkd entail the average reader to have a dictionary by his/her side. Let me quickly define some of the hard words even a veteran newsdog like Desi would be staggered to guess their real meanings, what more trying to comprehend the writer's INTENDED PURPOSE using the words.
TODAY Desi ain't gonna waste time and energy doing a full REBUTTAL to Azmi's latest "bodekism" for his political masters -- you know who right? Desi ain't telling 'cos that would be insulting my esteemedreaders' intelligence! -- disguised as creative journalism. I had done a few in the recent past in you are interested, surf to:

APRIL 4, 2014:
What I would do is to highlight some points as a scribe who is bloth a blogger and journalist and to be fair, I repeat here the umpteenth time, a card-carrying member of PKR Seremban divion for about 10 years now.
FIRST, from nst.com.my:
Azmi Anshar - 30 August 2014 @ 8:08 AM
DATUK Seri Anwar Ibrahim might be anxiously fretting that the ground
beneath his feet is sinking again, only that the déjà vu the opposition
leader and unelected PKR supremo is experiencing is no paranoia.
The ground is indeed falling as fast as the Rawang sinkholes when
swallets horrendously appeared, sometimes caving inside living rooms or
kitchen floors of horrified villagers.
Anwar could empathise with the Rawang sinkholes, given the
metaphoric holes he excavated for himself since he went rogue on Sept 3,
Don’t remind or mention the month of September to Anwar: appalling
stuff happened, either those subjected to him or those he subjected
people to in his outlandish bid to claw out of the chasm he burrowed to
make himself relevant.
Here are sordid samples why September commemorates a nightmare for Anwar:
SEPT 2, 1998: His dishonourable sacking as deputy
prime minister in the day and expulsion from Umno later that night. Why
he was sacked on both counts can be turn into a 10-part political TV
melodrama, ramifications that forced a generational schism for 16 years;
SEPT 20, 1998: His first police
arrest after arousing illegal street demonstrations to vent anger
against his sacking. Anwar was charged with corruption for interfering
with police investigations that included forcing a complainant to recant
her story that he gambolled in sexual misconduct;
SEPT 16, 2008: He bragged one hoary claim after
another that enough Barisan Nasional members of parliament were
defecting to the opposition to topple the BN government in what is now a
dud, a “wag-the-dog” histrionics to mask his arrest for a second sodomy
charge that year.
The Sept 16 complot is a historic hoot: it failed then, it will
fail now, just when Anwar possesses better numbers to play around with,
which proves that after six years, it is another dreadful tune in his
notorious hit parade.
Now here comes another nightmarish September moment for Anwar: Sept 3.
This one looms on Wednesday, the deadline decreed by the sultan of
Selangor to PKR, DAP and Pas to nominate three names each to replace,
as menteri besar, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, still defying gravity
after his questionable sacking as PKR member that underhandedly cast him
as a pariah by axis hardliners.
Certainly, it wasn’t intended that when the bigheaded PKR geniuses
who engineered the Kajang Move to boorishly replace Khalid with Anwar,
the crunch would arrive damningly on a September day.
Still, it’s creepy that major Anwar gambits get foiled in the 11th
hour: his Kajang by-election candidature scratched after the prosecution
won their appeal to overturn his Sodomy II acquittal and before that,
the sacking, the Sept 16 damp squib and the GE13 defeat that presented
probably his last shot at the premiership despite boasting a tweet on
polling day that he had won.
Now, the sinkhole is set to reappear, again tantalisingly at the
11th hour this Wednesday when Pas makes or breaks the axis’ alliance by
navigating itself into a Catch-22 situation.
If Pas presents three nominees as decreed by the sultan of
Selangor, the Islamist party shreds the so-called axis consensus of
fielding only Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as the sole nominee.
If Pas embraces the axis’ single nominee, it licks back its own
spittle, forced to endorse Dr Wan Azizah’s nomination but worse,
disobeying the Selangor ruler’s decree, a no-no for Pas because of its
loyalty to His Highness.
However, reading into Pas’ simmering resentment against its PKR and
DAP allies, it appears wilfully ready to break ranks for three reasons:
PAS balks at the nepotistic nature of Dr Wan Azizah’s nomination, “remote controlled” by Anwar, as one report goes;
PAS is sick and tired of years of being undermined in major policies, especially those that affect its Islamic precepts; and
PAS fears that the collaborative years were analogous to having ditched its akidah, the Islamic article of faith, which warns of divine retribution in the afterlife.
If Pas resorts to the three-nominee decree, Anwar is as good as
finished in Selangor, realising too well that the sultan of Selangor,
who has refused to even consider Dr Wan Azizah, will appoint the third
(or fourth) nominee that is not named after his wife or his bolshie
loyalist, Azmin Ali.
Even if the situation warrants a snap state election (which
everyone seems to dread) where the axis retains power, the same
obstinate scenario will replay where Anwar won’t relent while the sultan
acts within his constitutional supremacy.
The delicious poser is, will Anwar go ballistic against the sultan
of Selangor by unleashing his retaliatory arsenal of street
demonstrations, social media assaults and other protests of insolence
that reprises his vengeance against various Federal Government leaders
in the past 16 years?
DESIDERATA: I have done a few REBUTTALS to Azmi Anshar's articles mainly attacking PKR defacto chief DS Anwar Ibrahim in which the scribe used words or phrases which a medical doctor or even a psychiatrict would hesitate to use! Maybe Azmi holds a string of medical qualifications which he is too modest to display?
Now in the latest diatribe against DSAI, I would quote some samples of this NST newsdog playing doctor again using words and phrases or lines with mental attributes that are shuffed down readers' throats (mine at least, yes, my mind...)
I randomly select from the Internet reference dictionary I use, dictionary.com:) from the cited article above for some relevant definitions:~~~~~~~~~~~
1. swallets horrendously
4. ...defying gravity
after his questionable sacking as PKR member that underhandedly cast him
as a pariah by axis hardliners...
5. bigheaded PKR geniuses.......boorishly replace Khalid with Anwar
I'm taking a tea -break now OK? Meet Desi at De Miang Conner -- I buy the tt endless rounds, you bring the kambing! See you ER again later when both my badan and spirit are willing, INsyaAllah!
PS: BACK FROM OVERNIGHT TEA-DINNER-BF BREAK the day after, I decided I would not do the dirty job for Azmi to seek the meanings of the cited examples Cos it's an exercise in futility as some writers believe like UMNO politicians, they have one law for themselves, another law for the Opposition. See my next post...
