SK II to save the KMT?

Taiwan News reports on the KMT's younger generation demanding that the party leadership appoint someone to match the youthful DPP leadership.

A Kuomintang youth alliance yesterday appealed to the two candidates seeking the post of KMT chairman, Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) and Wang Jin-pyng (王金平), to push for more concrete measures to rejuvenate the party.

Liu Che-chay, the convenor of the youth alliance Super KMT II, said that KMT members were too old to compete with the Democratic Progressive Party and hoped that a younger person could fill the post of KMT vice-chairman.

Members of Super KMT II, which takes its name from SKII, a kind of cosmetic which claims to help maintain an appearance of youthfulness, vowed to become key reformers in the quest to bring young people back to the KMT.

It should also be pointed out that SK II is also an overpriced product marketed toward elites that aims to cover up blemishes, not eradicate them. Should be perfect for the party.

Perhaps the KMT should take a page out of the catholic church's image-building campaign in the movie "Dogma" and start a 'KMT WOW!' movement, complete with a thumbs-up "Buddy Ching-kuo" idol to worship.

Just a thought.
