Mahatma Zambry
Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir recently compared his 'struggle' for the post of Chief Executive of Perak to that of Mandela and Gandhi in a blog post (and quoted Martin Luther King, Jr to boot). Wow. Let us see if this comparison pans out:

The main difference between Mandela or Gandhi and Zambry, however, not that one would expect him to understand, is moral rectitude. They did what they did because they knew it was the right thing to do, which gave them succour in their fight, against tremendous odds, for the just dispensation of civil liberties and freedom. Zambry, on the other hand, aims only as high as personal emolument, and is willing to subvert the democratic process and our constitutional rights (not to mention sully the names and cheapen the sacrifices of two freedom fighting heavyweights by this very comparison) to achieve his goal. Two fingers in the air to you, sir.
