It looks like there was a great Halloween party at the KMT headquarters yesterday. I am only kidding. It wasn't a Halloween party but yet another attempt by the KMT to appeal to 'uncouth, low class Taiwanese,' voters. Just kidding again The goal of the Taike ampaign group is to turn this negative term into a positive one. Lien Sheng-wen or Sean Lien or Lien Chan's boy is in the middle of the back row and appears to be the leader. Am I the only one who looks at this picture and sees West Side Story with Lien Sheng-wen playing Riff?
Now everyone wants to be `taike' Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) legislators and officials -- including party spokeswoman Cheng Li-wen, center front, and Central Standing Committee Member Lien Sheng-wen, center back -- yesterday establish a ``Taike'' campaign group for the upcoming elections, vowing to turn the negative term referring to uncouth, low-class Taiwanese into a positive one.
