In less than 140 characters, Khairy Jamaluddin may have just destroyed his and UMNO's chances of swaying fence sitters and Malay moderates from supporting Barisan Nasional at the next General Election.

He has committed the cardinal sin of politics by picking on not his political opponent, but his son. A mere school boy, what could Lim Junior have possibly done to deserve such slander? Lim Guan Eng and Lim Kit Siang have every right to be outraged at this despicable behaviour.

It is one thing to have pro-UMNO bloggers spreading lies and slander over the Internet. That only reaches a limited audience. Politician expect to face criticism on a daily basis. In fact one would argue that criticism could make one stronger.

However, to level a blow on a 16-year old boy, this is no longer fair game. No one would ever tolerate attacks on a person's child, whether in government and opposition. When an opposition member condemns the child of a member of the ruling party, when that child is in no position to defend his or herself, it should be roundly condemned. It holds true the other way round.

Right now, Khairy Jamaluddin finds himself in a precarious position. As UMNO Youth chief, he has painted an image that he is a moderate and an agent for change within a party which has lost their core values in their quest to retain power.

He is a young, highly educated and well spoken leader, representing the next generation of politicians in this country. We also know he is a loving father with two sons which he dotes upon. Imagine if one of his sons was in Lim Junior's position. Wouldn't he be outraged? We would be appalled if he was not.

Why one earth then did he decide to add fuel to fire with his two tweets, the first one yesterday where he said in response to another tweet by pro-Umno blogger "@PapaGomo" translated to "Maybe he destroyed Kampung Buah Pala because he wants to replace it with Kampung Buah Dada", which can be construed as a direct attack on Lim Junior.

Despite clarifications that the girl in question was not even in the same class as Lim Junior, Khairy was relentless. In his response to calls to apologise, he defended his comments tweeting "Bro, what BN leaders & their families get from the opposition is far worse. Don't be hypocritical" replying to Liew Chin Tong and Satees Muniady. I actually replied, via @douglast86 "because BN leaders feel aggrieved of past attacks they can justify an attack on LGE son?"

Some Umno basturds thought that they have done a great & wonderful act and waiting to receive their great rewards from the leadership. Some how, God is great. Their evil acts turn around and whack them back properly. Their evil acts also bring shame & disgrace to Umno for having such a low pariah class of bloggers. KJ just become one of them too. The Oxford's cert can just burn away. It doesn't carry any more weight for him, bye bye. ...

Anybody can be nasty,uncouth, or an idiot whether he or she graduated from XIN HUA DA XUE or from the UNIVERSITY OF MALAYSIA

So you, bloggers, grow up. No big deal having a degree. As a matter of fact I have quite a few gathering dust inside the closet. ...

Someone or somebody someday will somehow make a huge disclosure of all the dud degrees,Phds that all the UMNO members are carrying around, identifying and equating themselves with. I have heard of Plenty.

It is just tells you the mindset of UMNO politicians. They just can't keep their minds off sex!

Well, he has cooked his own goose and from now on he will be called all sorts of names. He was 'Beruk' for a while but now I think he should be referred to as MP ' Buah Dada'.

This should identify him as a 'perv' and a very disgusting politician who attacks the defenceless children of his political opponents. ...

Without christianisation by the church, KJ already portrayed he is a bad muslim.

If you look at the expiry date label on KJ's political life, it is past expiry date. It expired the day, Mukriz, his deputy, was made minister and KL was not. If he had any honour that was the day he should have quit UMNO. In the writings on the wall are quite clear that he will not win any post in the next UMNO election. All these antics are to inject some life back into his political life. He tried by saying that he will not stand for election the next time around hoping for a clamour of calls to withdraw his decision. It did not happen and this is another act of desperation to show that he is relevant. He tried to pull one stunt during Bersih 2 and became a laughing stock. Poor boy! Directionless. Rudderles. No father-in-law to call for support! ...

He is a young, highly educated and well spoken leader! F**k him! He is no better than a skunk or vultures which is scavenging for votes to defend his youth chief. How can an educated man stoop so low to attack or slander a child without feeling remorseful? No only pariah will do this!!! His mind must be filled with dirty thoughts and yes, most of BN leaders are of such low quality!!!
