the other senatoriable

Who is a nuisance candidate?, the PCIJ asks. My cousin Lala recently joined the esteemed organisation as a writer/researcher. The said article is her third to date. You can read her previous works here and here. You can also access her personal blog here.

Just when you thought we've finally put the joke that is Eddie Gil into oblivion, comes a much bigger mockery. With Cantal's incredible achievements(?), he should've been president already. But we are not stupid. However, what's puzzling me is the inability of the distinguished(?) men and women of COMELEC to see that Cantal is more fiction than fact. If this absurdity goes on, why don't we give them a dose of their own medicine? I say let us humor them all by running for president in 2010.

Ano, call?

Now we know what kind of legacy Abalos is leaving the COMELEC with, a legacy of prostitution.

But even if this is the case, the electorate must view this as a challenge. Let's not be plain voters, let us be the vanguards of democracy and the sanctity of the ballot.

If the COMELEC cannot safeguard the process, then its up to us, the voters.

precisely. some people are just "walang hiya." and i mean that in its worst possible essence. isama pa si gonzales. although, i don't really expect them to act with honor, pero sana naman kilabutan sila.

I am really impressed by the PCIJ. Your cousin must be smart to be able to join such an organisation.
But it is not without risks...

she is. and i concede that she is the writer in our family. i'm sure she's aware of the risks and i don't think they'll intimidate her one bit.
