There are hard-core Pakatan fans. They believe that Pakatan can do no evil. The fact that Pakatan parties are strange bed-fellows don't concern them because ultimately, Pakatan must form the federal government for the good of Malaysians. Politics is the art of possibilities and compromise. Anything is better than what we have now: a federal government that is corrupt, abuses its powers, and tolerates racial and religious polarisation as long as it is perpetrated by UMNO, Perkasa and Biro Tata Negara.
