Look this up on Malaysiakini.com.

He meant “fight” as in elections and not a “fist fight”. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh….

Now I wonder why Opposition leader Lim Kit Siang would “stoop” so low as to make an everest out of this ant hill. Even blogger Elizabeth Wong was quite incensed with it – WTF: Male MP wants to be up female MP.

Lim had accused Sothinathan (pixs) of issuing the challenge to Fong Po Kuan (DAP-Batu Gajah) on Monday, when he couldn’t issue proper answers, while winding-up points related to his ministry on the Supply Bill 2008.

He couldn’t explain why MIC has become a ‘slave’ to Umno, when DAP MPs grilled about this. We want to know, too, Sothi, though I can imagine why, MIC is a slave to Umno.

When Sothi challenge Fong to a “fight” outside Parliament, naturally, the whole jingbeng of DAP MPs demanded an apology and described the incident as being “most disgraceful in setting a new Malaysian parliamentary record of a male MP challenging a female MP to a physical fight”.

Hahaha! Though the fight didn’t actually take place, I think Sothi has been “slapped, kicked and punched” in more ways than one.

    A poster on my blog, Jeffrey, had delivered the most eloquent rebuttal of Sothinathan’s denial of the undeniable in his following comment on my blog on the thread “Sothinathan challenging Po Kuan to a “fight” on YouTube” yesterday:

    Sothinathan denied challenging Po Kuan to a fist-fight. At the press conference, Sothinathan clarified that in politics, the term ‘fight’ refers to elections and not to the exchange of blows. He has given the word “fight” a twist.

    To divine what he meant one must look at the context in which the “fight” was mentioned.

    He said, Siapa takut? Cakap seperti seorang lelaki bukan? Berani, mari lawan lah. Jangan cakap “gender bias!”

    When he told the person he addressed not to raise “gender bias”, he obviously meant, in context, “fist-fight” in respect to which the issue of gender inequality only arises, since it is common nowadays for women to contest in elections in respect to which the question of gender bias does not arise at all.

    It is apparent that in the heat of arguments he directed the challenge of a fist-fight to Po Kuan, whether he actually meant it or not.

    Sagaladoola, can we even expect a Soddy apology? Can the sanctity of the lingam be compromised? The matter has to end at “misquotation”, I suppose.

    When I was a kid I really enjoy watching the brawls by the Taiwainese Parlimentarians, I saw the highlights on TV but wow, what have we got here….

    Except it’s different. Its a shame for a PHALLUS to throw a challenge at a CHALICE for a hand to hand combat.

    Sothinathan should have at least go for a sex change, prided in a bra and panty, only then Po Kuan might say ‘Go ahead, make my day!’

    Did I just mentioned about bra….? When I glanced at the cleavage it’s -A. Damnit, I hate knowing everything!

    Samy’s thugs to attack Hindraf rally?
    Posted on November 22nd, 2007 by nat

    Meanwhile, Inspector-General of Police Musa Hassan said the police had received information that gangsters would be used during the rally that would disturb the peace.
    Ah, but used by whom, my good IGP?

    Few are as notorious as Samy Vellu when it comes to thuggery and gangsterism.

    Mdm Fong had missed the opportunity of a life time!

    If I am in her shoes, I would just accept the challenge! Imagine what will happen…

    1. Sothi will beat het up black and blue and the whole nation will label him as a woman-basher, a bully or a pondan.

    2. Mdm Fong will beat Sothi black and blue and the whole nation will laugh at him for being beaten-up by a woman. That is worse than a pondan.

    3. Sothi will back off from the pow-wow and still, the whole nation will laugh at him for being scared of being beaten-up by a woman. That is atleast equivalent to being called a pondan.

    So, there is no way Mdm Wong can “lose.” I guess she missed that opportunity now. To all the women MPs, think about it the next time a man MP challenge you to a fist fight. ACCEPT IT!

    Sothi is a REAL PONDAN. In Tamil, Pondan is called “Ponne”. So, let us call Sothinathan PONNE-Sothi or PONNE-Nathan….That fits the description i.e. only a PONNE-Male would challenge a female for a fist fight and WORST STILL, do not have the courage (that’s why he is “Ponne”) to own up instead of saying fighting in Election. Sothi, send me your MOM or WIFE…I would ask my DOG to fight with them (I Mean In ELECTION…DEY PONNE POHDAH!..
