Deep thoughts, May 8, 2008

Smoke and mirrors

When lawyers for people like Wu Shih-tsai (吳思材) (one of the alleged brokers in the Papua New Guinea fund scandal) appear on "talk" shows like those hosted by Sisy Chen (陳文茜), shouldn't the question on everyone's mind be "What are they trying to distract people's attention away from?"

Chiu Yi talks about himself when he purportedly talks about others
Is this a "fraudulent" slip?
Chiu Yi says: 四分真來雜薯包裝六分假
Translation: "40% truth packaged with 60% lies"
(Nah! 40% is way too high for Chiu!)

And when habitual liars like Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislator Chiu Yi (邱毅) give the media "clues," wouldn't it be best for them to quickly run away and look elsewhere for the real answers?

UPDATE: The Sunday, May 11, 2008 edition of the Taipei Times has an editorial cartoon which indicates that someone there is thinking like me. Since it's not available on their web site, you'll either have to get your hands on the print edition or click the thumbnail below to view it in full detail:

A witch doctor, the pan-blue media, and the 'investigator(s)'
A witch doctor leads the pan-blue media
which, in turn, wants an "investigator" to follow.
(Hmmm. Where have I seen that guy on the left before?)

I'm afraid I don't follow. What is there to distract from?

The case at the very least demonstrates a shocking level of incompetence, desperation and naivety from the foreign ministry and the administration. I mean, sure, Wu's lawyer will be trying to distract from his (likely) guilt, but that's what lawyers do.

I feel this one is on the administration's head. No getting around it.
