I write better when I smoke. Don’t ask me to reduce it to a science.

Morons-in-waiting

That awesome silence you heard when Joey de Venecia announced that he was going to run for Congress? That was the sound of no one being surprised. It was inevitable, really, and quite obvious from the get-go. What is less obvious is whether this de Venecia will be any different from the one he wants to replace. My gut tells me NO.

A bit more surprising is the news that Manny Pacquiao will be hanging up his gloves for good so that he can run for public office in 2010. Sure it’s stupid, but I figure he has an itch that needs to be scratched. At this point, I’m ready to give him the benefit of the doubt: maybe he really is doing this out of some genuine desire to serve. But the belief that he’s only someone’s wind-up toy never actually disappears. After all, having good intentions is one of the best ways of becoming someone’s puppet. My gut tells me that the Pacman has had his head pumped so full of hype about his own magnificence that he now actually believes it.

Apart from poking fun at these two morons-in-waiting (my theory is that getting elected to Congress sucks up a person’s IQ; makes him an idiot – just like MSG does), I’d like to tell you that I’ve decided to wrap up the polls on Ninoy and Federalism.

Out of 39 votes on the stupendously unscientific poll on Ninoy, 19 votes (49%) called him a non-hero; 14 votes (36%) called him a hero; and 4 votes (10%) didn’t care. An amazing 2 votes (5%) went ‘D-oh!” OMFG. Seriously, two people with access to the internet actually don’t know who the heck Ninoy is? Maybe they’re part of the iamninoy target market. LOL!

On the Federalism – also stellarly unscientific – poll, Yes got 31% (8 votes); No got 50% (13 votes); 12% (3 votes) said they didn’t know if they wanted to federalize; while 8% (2 votes) didn’t even care. These t

wo votes were prolly cast by the same people who didn’t know Ninoy.

It’d be funny if it weren’t so fucking tragic.

Oh, and, please vote in the new poll. Help me decide who to put money on. Only keep in mind that the money I’m talking about has to do with grad school and a brand new iPod. So please, don’t screw me up. :p

  • Re-election 31 December 2008
    Maceda sez Erap consulted Narvasa and others, and they told him that the 1987 Consti prohibits only the INCUMBENT prez from re-election. Former prezzies, by their definition, face no such prohibition. But in the same breath, Maceda also sez that they know an Erap candidacy will be the subject of a disqual case – but […]
  • Escalation 30 December 2008
    I still think the Pangandaman’s shouldn’t have retaliated even if dela Paz threw the first punch. But is anyone really surprised at the escalation in the story-telling on both sides? BTW, I think we can dispense with the age angle nao.
  • Etiquette 29 December 2008
    Unless you’re spoiling for a fight, assume that the writer has some basis for what she writes. Don’t make like a lawyer and ask retarded questions in an attempt to lay the foundation for whatever point you’re trying to make.
  • Anne 28 December 2008
