No matter if the cat is black or white, as long as it catches mice, it’s a good cat. But it must by no means be a Persian cat which only looks good – pleasant to the eye but useless!

James Soong Chu-yu (宋楚瑜), People-First Party (PFP, 親民黨) chairman and (potential) presidential candidate

KMT spokeswoman Lai Su-ju ((賴素如)) said that the Ma government’s achievements over the past three years in the fields of cross-strait relations, diplomacy and the economy were there for all to see. Song Chu-yu’s criticism was a far cry from the facts.

Lai, indirectly quoted by the China Times online (中時電子報), with her reaction to what Soong may or may not have targeted at president Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九).

Soong Chu-yu said that politicians, even when talking in private, shouldn’t crack jokes, thus invoking inappropriate connotations among outsiders. He hoped that people wouldn’t read too much into it. He would pay more attention and choose his words more carefully in the future.
