It is the Year of the Rat. The prime minister (PM) has just let the cat out of the bag - the general election (GE) will be real soon, for there is a feeling among many that the country is going to the dogs.

The PM, who has never lost any sleep since he became the PM, has been trying to awaken the nation to the imminent GE. He had declared last June, in what could have been the most important statement of his political career: "I am no sleeping PM!"

Four years have passed swiftly by since Pak Lah became PM. He has made it very clear he is no "one-term" PM. Why, in between his many 40 photogenic winks he has even come up with Vision 2057! Who says the PM has failed to walk the talk when he has even managed Bolehland sleepwalking!
