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

No apologies

That’s the treacherous thing about calling the Filipino people your Boss, and continuously making such a big deal of it. First of all, it’s plain rhetoric, ok? A figure of speech, a manner of speaking. But when the shit hits the fan, it becomes a bludgeon that can be used to beat you over the head with.

Now this:

You set yourself up for this, boss.

Should he apologize? Of course not! He’s the fucking president, isn’t he? And look at what happened to the last bitch who tried to do that? HAH! Her apology turned a bludgeon into a thousand knives. And that’s what’s gonna happen here too, if Aquino apologizes.

The apology will be considered an admission of guilt and the rabble will just use that as another rallying cry for his ouster. Filipinos – or at least the spinners amongst us – aren’t a particularly forgiving lot. With those people, it’s always a bait-and-switch. Like Frank Drilon telling GMA to apologize then later joining the chorus ridiculing the apology as being too little too late.

Look. Thanks to the Supreme Court, we all know that the DAP is unconstitutional. Thanks to Renato Reyes of Bayan (or Akbayan or Anakbayan or whatever permutation of Bayan there might be), we know that the President signed off on it. Edwin Lacierda even confirmed it – just like Toting Bunye did with those Garci tapes. So, yeah, that’s pretty much an airtight case for the President’s involvement in an unconstitutional act.

Do we really need an apology?

What would it serve? To soothe our ruffled feathers? HAH!

How sincere can that apology be when the official party line is that all those acts were done in good faith. How can the President be apologizing for DAP when his mouthpieces maintain that they didn’t know they were doing the wrong thing?

And speaking of good faith, that defense smacks of bad faith itself.

First of all, the Constitution is considered written into every single fucking law, rule, contract. Everything, in other words, that this benighted government does. And that self-same Constitution is clear as day about the limitations of the President’s powers to realign funds. Doesn’t it beggar the intellect of people to ask us to accept that they honestly thought they weren’t doing anything wrong?

Hold up. It might actually be possible – considering that they’ve surrounded themselves with yes-men (Is this Constitutional? Yes sir! err… what are we talking about sir?), stacked the Supreme Court in their favor, AND pocketed more Congressmen than you can shake a stick at! Given all that, it probably isn’t impossible for the President to have received bad advice.

HOLY SHIT! That means HE isn’t responsible at all!!!

See, toldja he didn’t have to apologize.

And besides. Kris Aquino.

  • 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.
