WHISPERING HOPE


LP Not Giving Up
In a press conference Monday, the Liberal Party claimed that based on 88 certificates of canvass (81 percent) obtained by the party, Mar Roxas led Jejomar Binay by 137,404 votes. LP stalwarts did not reveal though whose idea was it to publicly give Roxas… false hopes.

During Liberal Party’s press con last Monday, May 17, PAGASA reported that temperature in Metro Manila sizzled at 37.3 degrees Celsius. Now you know why Binay’s lead over Roxas evaporated.

Based on official tally though, Mar Roxas is losing the vice presidential race to Jejomar Binay. Roxas and the Liberal Party are shocked. They couldn’t believe that Binay and even Erap would actually be this strong. In fact, the Binay-Erap tandem has become LP’s second strongest competition… next only to the tandem of Conrado De Quiros and William Esposo.


Questions and Answers
Q1: “Senator, hindi ba kayo naaawa kay Governor Salceda? Sunog na sunog na eh.”
A1: “Sus! ‘Di naman halata. Hayaan na natin. ‘Tsaka, nag-sunblock lotion ‘yan kanina.”

Q2: “Senator, bakit kayong lahat naka-yellow pero ‘yung mama sa likuran naka-blue?”
A2: “Naku! Hayaan mo na siya. Basta ang iboboto ng pamilya namin, ‘yung laging naka-dilaw!”

Q3: “Meron po bang ‘B?’”
A3: “Alam mo, taga-IBC 13 ka na nga lang, ikaw pa ang malakas mang-intriga! Next question pls!”

Q4: “Senator, kung mananalo po kayo at matatalo si Mar Roxas… why not?”
A4: “Lokohan na ‘to! Tama na! Aalis na kami.”

Vocal Local
In Quezon City: Actress and defeated vice mayoral candidate Aiko Melendez is reportedly filing a petition before the Comelec against what her camp alleged were “preprogrammed” PCOS machines. A shocked Melendez claimed she got zero votes in her bailiwicks… something that if proven true will finally disprove the popular notion that many Quezon City residents are idiots.

In Manila: After being trounced by incumbent mayor Alfredo Lim in the May 10 polls, mayoral candidate Lito Atienza filed an election protest claiming that some PCOS machines may have been “preprogrammed” to make Lim win even in some known Atienza bailiwicks. Asked if he took the cue from Quezon City’s Aiko Melendez, Atienza replied, “Definitely not! I can spell ‘bailiwick.’”

Accompanied by his loyal supporters, defeated mayoral candidate Lito Atienza went to the local Comelec office Monday and filed an electoral protest. But tension rose outside the office when Kuya Kim Atienza suddenly appeared, and told his dad’s supporters, “Maaaadlang pipol…. vote mo, show mo!”

In Quezon Province: Outgoing Governor Rafael Nantes was killed when his private chopper crashed in Lucena City Monday. Supporters of the defeated re-electionist were quick to deny rumors that the chopper crashed because of“shipment” overload.

Remember Rafael Nantes? The former congressman and outgoing Quezon governor who had been linked to the illegal drug trade was killed in a plane crash Monday. Probers are now checking on reports that Nantes’ private pilot was flying ‘high.’

And finally, in my home province of Batangas: Actress Vilma Santos was re-elected governor… making her the first gubernatorial candidate to win against a corpse.

Kris Stays
Amid calls for her to fulfill a promise, incoming presidential sister Kris Aquino announced Sunday that she’s not leaving the country… disappointing the 22,000plus members of the Facebook group, ‘Kris Aquino’s Despedida,‘ her brother’s critics, and James Yap.

Briefly Noted
Did you read Conrado De Quiros’ two-part column “about” and “against” the Hyatt 10, The Firm, and Mar Roxas diehards in the Liberal Party? Geez, these people must be debating among themselves now: who should draft the rejoinder? Will there be a Korina Sanchez vs. Conrado De Quiros Part 2? Abangan!

Survey Says
Sino ang dapat sisihin sakaling matalo si Sen. Mar Roxas?
Ang ‘Team Noy-Bi’ sa Liberal Party 27%
S’ya mismo at ang mga campaign strategists niya! 46%
Wala. It’s his fate to lose. 27%

We have a new survey. Please vote now.

Personal
My sincerest apologies to Mark Tare of the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism. His group requested for an interview prior to Election Day but due to a tight sked, I failed to grant their request. Anyway, here’s PCIJ’s online article on political humor: Joke the vote, pun the bets

    1. Don’t you worry john. Yakang-yaka ni CDQ i-demolish ang kanino mang opinion pag bumanat na siya. Remember, nung sinagot niya yung banat ni Kuring sa kanya sa interview niya kay Ted Failon, ang naging response lang ng Kuring ay :”nagtatanong lang po” (kung si Mar ang pinapatungkulan ni CDQ ng atat na atat mag-presidente.) Ha-ha-ha!

  1. re: survey about corona, it’s a damned if you do, damned if you don’t thingy.

    my understanding is, since the Supreme Court has overruled a constitutional provision re midnight appointments, syempre, dahil supreme court na ang nagsabi with finality, it is okay for soon-to-be ExPGMA – yeheyy-sa-wakas-blah-blah-blah na makapag appoint siya.

    see the gray areas sa batas. it is not exact sometimes. kadaming loopholes dyan, e.g. the mandatory retirement age ng chief justice na incidentally, nag conflict sa constitution……

    Like

    1. The Supreme Court can OVERRULE the Constitution? WHAAAAAAT?!!!! Baka SUPER SUPREME COURT yung sinasabi mo.

      “Gray areas sa batas?” Justice Holmes once said in Government vs Springer: “[t]he great ordinances of the Constitution do not establish and divide fields of black and white. Even the more specific of them are found to terminate in a penumbra shading gradually from one extreme to the other.” Kaya may gray areas yan. Otherwise, di na kailangan ang Supreme Court para mag-INTERPRET (di OVERRULE) ng batas.

      Mandatory retirement age ng chief justice may loophole?!!! Di ba 70 years old is 70 years old?!! Unless ma-OVERRULE ng Supreme Court yan.

      1. So it seems sa kaso nag pag-appoint key Corona.

        nasa batas na BAWAL mag appoint ang outgoing president.
        nasa batas din ang mandatory retirement age

        what to do now kung nag-pang-abot ang mga ‘to at a point in time?

        kaya ayun, sabi ng supreme court, pwedeng mag-appoint.

        gray areas are vague provisions in the law that can be circumvented based sa interpretation, e.g. erap’s seeking reelection. get it? 🙂

  5. Slightly off-topic, but still elections related. Have you guys seen the trailer for the new movie The Expendables? It boasts of a powerhouse cast that includes Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. I’ve never seen so many action stars put together since our latest Senate roster.

        Actually, that’s a good move on the part of Pacquaio. As a Congressman, you are directly responsible for your constituent’s welfare kaya dapat in good side ka lagi sa administration. Unless of course gusto nyang “broke” sya after his 3-year term.

        Naiimagine ko na ang pila sa labas ng maging office ni Pacquaio sa Congress, araw-araw sya ng pila nyan nga mga humihingi ng financial assistance, medical assistance, at kung anu-ano pang assistance, pati na burial assistance 🙂
