IN THE NEWS…
Atty. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III has been proclaimed senator of the Republic of the Philippines. Next week in the Senate, Pimentel will reportedly make a grand entrance, two weeks after Zubiri’s graceful exit.
Koko Pimentel has been proclaimed senator a week after Miguel Zubiri’s resignation. Koko is hopeful that his father Nene would likewise be proclaimed senator as soon as Senator Enrile quits his post.
The second operation on former President Arroyo’s spine wasn’t as successful as the first one. Or as Migz Zubiri would say, “Parang 2004 at 2007 elections lang.”
The government is hell-bent on nailing the Arroyos. In fact, the Department of Justice now considers placing even Rufa Mae Quinto on the immigration watch list.
In America, Standard & Poor’s downgraded the US credit rating from AAA to Double A Plus. In the Philippines, devout Catholics downgraded Mideo Cruz’s artwork from “R” to “Triple X Minus.”
President Aquino has spoken against the “Kulo” exhibit at the CCP. The President is reportedly disappointed. He just ordered the DOJ to place Mideo Cruz on immigration watchlist too.
Former First Gentleman Mike Arroyo snubbed the Senate hearing Thursday. To be fair, he sent the senators a letter detailing his current health condition as drafted by his lawyers at the St. Luke Law Office.
A Poe gave Mike Arroyo a headache in 2004.
A Po is giving him a headache today.
“Once you choose hope, anything’s possible.”
Briefly Noted Too
