jubilations, disappointments and surprises

May 18, 2007

’tis a bad year for the balimbings. the people have seen through their machinations and decided they do not want anything to do with these people.

not even the gang of the most popular noontime show in the land today can save what, from the beginning, is a doomed campaign.

makati canvassing:

jejomar binay: 198,000 (votes more or less)

lito lapid: 10,000 (votes more or less)

pare 1: seems like leon guerrero just fell off his horse.

pare 2: more like he jumped off from the top of the 30 plus storey makati city hall!

before: 44 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws

now: 44 wins, 4 losses and 2 draws

that was manny pacqiuao’s latest fight record until he was KO’d bigtime by ms darlene antonino custodio.

the words ‘diminutive’ and ‘petite’ seems to be in vogue nowadays. thanks to supergirl darlene custodio who did the unexpected. when all the macho gringos of mexico were battered and floored by our very own manny pacquiao, can one really expect a giggling size of a schoolgirl knocked the wind out of the people’s champ? but she did it. convincingly and with a lot of elan and class.

i have this gut feeling that manny would have won if only fg mike arroyo was around.

one thing good happened in this year’s elections. the taartits woke up to a new reality in philippine politics. they found out, much to their dismay, that the people aren’t voting for them simply because of their good looks and popularity. let’s face it, what have these movie superstars done in the senate? asiong, asiong jr, anak ng panday, leon guerrero, nardong putik, et al? aside from the zzzz’s and the uhmmm’s, (and ooops! the carabao law) were they able to contribute anything for the good of the nation? thank god the electorate have wisened up!

one taartits is even proud to say that whenever they make movies in the slum areas, they would immerse themselves with the squatters and thus, gaining an insight on their problems and their hopes and thus, oneness with the mahihirap. good for you! but to equate this with running for the senate? is immersion with the squatters for a week enough qualification for them to run? as dave chappell and david letterman would put it–whaaat??? si sir naman, nagpapatawa! kala ko pa naman siryosong aktor si sir… komedyante pala!

don’t get me wrong. i have nothing against these movie idols voicing out their opinions, albeit asinine at times. i would even waste two hours of my time, if given a free ticket, a supersize coke light and a bag of popcorn, just to watch their movie (i heard that mr cesar montano did well in his last movie but never really had the time and the initiative to see it). but for them to run for the senate is another thing. please, let us not make the senate a depository of muck and filth. we have enough of them in the lower house.

a bicolano he is not (he is actually 1 part ilonggo and 1 part pampangueno). but because gma is his mother and he is in dire need of a career, he is now a congressman from the 1st district of camarines sur. oh! how i wish i have a mother like his’… ngiii!

golly! it cost prospero pichay close to P200 MILLION to lose the election. and trillanes P15 MILLION (of ms madrigal’s money) to hover in the magic 12. that’s quite a difference considering that pichay is not related to lucio tan or the zobels.

poor mr pichay! if only he have known that he can spend a much lesser amount of money to run for the senate, he would have launched a coup d’etat against gma last year!

is it a coincidence that there is less cheating in this year’s elections compared to the 2004 elections and fg mike arroyo out of action and convalescing at la vista? the mind is willing but the flesh is weak?

all things point to a massive election fraud from the 1st district of camarines sur to maguindanao to the pronouncement of tu spokesperson tonypet albano on the day after the elections that tu will trounce go 12-0.

one thing is missing though. when the fat man failed to sing, the whole thing began scrambling down.

honasan and trillanes is in. omigosh! just when you thought that the people have wisened up with their electoral choices comes two names that we can do better without. but considering the heavy anti-gma sentiment hereabouts, it is no longer a surprise that the electorate will vote for these two personalities that launched a coup against gma.

senator trillanes? isn’t this a slap at esperon’s face? i bet that if esperon run for the senate, victor wood will have garnered more votes. or joselito cayetano.

thank god, garci lost!

in the final analysis, no matter how gma and her minions and, hehehe, tony lopez put a slant on this, 2007 was a vote against gma and her machiavellian policies.

riddle:

this guy is not a cebuano but he is called dong. he made a run for the senate in 2004 and failed. now, he ran for congress and again failed. who is this guy?
