GMA and People Power

President Arroyo snubbed the celebration of the 22nd anniversary of People Power 1 at the People Power monument in Quezon City. That’s exactly the reason why this year’s celebration… was actually more meaningful.

GMA on Corruption

On the eve of the People Power I anniversary, President Arroyo spoke, “Maraming galit sa kurapsyon. Gayon din ako.” That’s the reason why she’s not been talking lately to the First Gentleman.

JDV to GMA: Resign!

Ousted House Speaker Jose De Venecia has joined calls for President Arroyo to step down. Those who care, taas ang kamay.

JDV to GMA: Resign! II

Former House Speaker Jose De Venecia has joined calls for President Arroyo to step down. De Venecia claimed he has given Mrs. Arroyo 100 days to start leading a moral revolution but she ignored him. But to be fair to Mrs. Arroyo, she’s not the only one who ignored him. Everyone did.

Erap to GMA: Resign!

After weeks of dilly-dallying, former president Joseph Estrada has finally joined calls for President Arroyo to resign. Isa ka pa!

Impeachment vs. GMA

Akbayan Rep. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel said, “If by July, GMA has not resigned, we will file an impeachment case against her.” Fellow solons who heard the threat smiled: they can smell the stench of Christmas in July. (Tawaran portion na naman!)

And the Oscar Goes To… null

null Diablo Cody won an Oscar for writing the script of the film Juno. Cody was an exotic dancer before today’s win. The exact opposite happened to our own Tessie Aquino-Oreta. She had to win a Senate seat first before she became a dancer.

And the Oscar Goes To… II

In Hollywood, an Oscar was given to a Diablo. Sus! Wala ‘yan! In the Philippines, it’s the presidency.

And the Oscar Goes To… III

Many Filipinos skipped the Edsa rites Monday and stayed home to watch the live telecast of the Oscars… curiously forgetting that joining the celebration would have placed them near some of the country’s best actors and actresses.

For those who missed the telecast of the Academy Awards, here’s the complete list of winners.

I was away for three days so here’s a bonus post:

Top 10 Things That We Really DON’T Want to Know

9: How Joey Salceda would look like in a tutu

8: What Miriam Defensor-Santiago utters in bed when she has reached org*sm

7: What Sen. Manny Villar looks like minus his toupee

6: Who is more sexually satisfied: Loi Estrada or Gina De Venecia

5: How Noli De Castro would fare if CNN’s Christiane Amanpour would conduct a one-on-one interview with him on economics and world affairs

4: The total amount of public money spent by congressmen and senators each year to sustain their wives’ and kids’ luxurious lifestyle

3: The exact thing that goes through the mind of the nuns at La Salle Greenhills when they see Jun Lozada in sando and shorts

2: The person whom Romulo Neri considers “the best ever in bed”

And the No. 1 thing we really don’t want to know…

It’s so inspiring to know that serious journalists are visiting my blog. I’d like to thank Newsbreak peeps for droppin’ by my site and actually quoting a line from my Valentine’s day post in the news magazine’s article posted today, February 25.

Enjoy the rest of the week.
