“We’re digging up Lyndon Johnson and we’re running him again!”
A strategy not done literally by the Liberal Party but definitely in the spirit of things. Source :
TOP TEN SLOGANS FOR THE 1992 DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION from the book An Altogether New Book of Top Ten Lists by David Letterman
Maybe the greatest singer/ songwriter ever wrote and sang “ Just remember that death is not the end. “ Well Bob Dylan never met the Liberal Party of the Philippines. For them death is the beginning of a higher elected post in government. As most of us say here in Get Real Philippines, pinoy politicians often resort to dead relatives for attention because the living ones match their current output.
Noynoy Aquino in 2010 pole vaulted over his mom’s corpse into Malacanang. His own campaign never mentioned achievement in 12 years as an elected official. When asked about the dearth of trophies on the wall, all Noynoy could respond with was that the presidency was his destiny. Way to deflect the question and confirm your professional inactivity Noynoy. The Noynoy’s template for success was exploited by Nancy Binay and Leni Lobredo. The rest of this article is best read with the theme of the movie Parenthood playing in the background on repeat.
Recently, Noynoy’s highest ranking apologist ( if you don’t count Maria Ressa), Leni Lobredo was photographed with her gang of like minded tourists smiling at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe as if they were posing in front of a dormant Mayon Volcano. What a coincidence that they are in an infamous place of a Nazi massacre when in their home country the topic of conversation is Nazi style fact checking on the dominant social network.
Returning to the preferred disposition of Mr. Roarke of Fantasy Island. Where have we seen this before??
Both instances excused by fairer half of the Sonny and Cher of Noynoy apologists, Maria Robles.
Where else have we seen this before?
If you recall Rico E. Puno resigned over the events at the time of Jesse Robredo’s plane crash. Some people can and will interpret Puno’s lack of personal justification for his actions as taking one for the team. Well whatever your interpretation, Jesse’s widow joined “that team” which can only mean move on nothing to see here, her husband’s death was purely an accident. Maybe it was an act of God since there are no shortage of people that treat the President at the time of Jesse Robredo’s death as their deity. Look at Leni’s smile at the wake. Visions of rising surveys dancing in her head.
Interesting to note in attendance for this morbid epal pose in Germany is Jose “DAP” Abad. In the Jewish culture, holocaust is defined as a Jewish sacrificial offering that is burned completely on an altar. In the context of the Filipino taxpayer Abad did the same with their funds when it comes to Corona bribes, Dengvaxia financing and Kris Aquino’s aerial Uber to campaign for Mar Roxas.
When Sen Lacson claims that Noynoy is not likely to have committed graft in relation to the Dengvaxia vaccine that has claimed scores of lives to date. It should be noted that Lacson also believes that Noynoy acted transparently throughout the Mamasapano incident. He does his best to extend the life of the good faith narrative. So basically what the good senator is saying is Noynoy does not make stupid decisions. He just trusted people to make stupid decisions and who hid relevant details from him. Somehow those are not stupid decisions. So Noynoy’s stupidity is tolerable in his eyes.
Death is something that will get all of us eventually. Leni’s chosen gang has taken advantage of death and the illogical pity of the Filipino psyche for a while now to buoy unqualified candidates into high positions who then function as marionettes for the real schemers. Noynoy and Leni are both not the brains of anything. Maybe some of you know Charlie McCarthy. Leni and Noynoy are both Charlie McCarthy that only got on Edgar Bergen’s lap because of a timely death. Now that is something for them to smile about.
