‘KAMPANYA SERYE’ AND OTHER STORIES

28 04 2013

MAALAALA MO KAYA’s ‘Kampanyaserye’ featured the life story of Juan Ponce Enrile – father of senatorial candidate Jackie Enrile. Apparently, it’s a two-part series. One for Pulse Asia and one for SWS.

mmk
Two weeks before the campaign period, multi-awarded drama anthology ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ featured the story of senatorial candidates Alan Peter Cayetano and Grace Poe. Two weeks before the elections, they’re featuring Enrile. Television shows have its highs and lows. This is MMK at its lowest.

To be fair, ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya,’ is not insulting its viewers’ intelligence. MMK is assuming they don’t have any.

Binay, Victim?
Senatorial aspirant Nancy Binay says she’s a victim of cyber bullying. That claim is highly debatable. But since she won’t debate on this issue anyway, let’s just move on.

Maceda Falls
Bad news from the UNA campaign trail: former senator Ernesto Maceda lost his footing and stumbled as he inched his way toward the stage. But the veteran politician recovered quickly, regained his composure and eventually won first runner-up.

Papin Is In
Last week, the Commission on Elections reversed its earlier ruling, and allowed Imelda Papin to run for a Congressional seat in Bulacan. Isn’t that a bit unfair to her? It’s already April 28. Papin has only 14 days left to prepare for a loss.

Windfall
ABS-CBN Corporation says it expects to earn at least 1-billion pesos from political ads. And that’s just for ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya.’

As in previous elections, ABS-CBN Corporation expects huge revenues from candidates. To which the New People’s Army said, “Kami rin.”

mmkNothing Romantic
President Aquino has denied reports he’s courting Bianca Manalo. Sought for comment, the former beauty queen said, “Thank God!’

Consul In Trouble
Philippine consul general to Vancouver Jose Ampeso is in hot water after a video of him berating an OFW surfaced online. Ampeso was reportedly drunk. The government has asked the intoxicated consul to come home, explain, and consider an offer to become Executive Secretary.

Gun Control
According to a Pulse Asia survey, 75 percent of Filipinos support a policy of gun control in the Philippines. The rest are idiots.

SALN Deadline
Government officials and employees including politicians have until Tuesday, April 30 to file their statement of assets, liabilities and net worth or SALN. If you’re a politician, you have absolutely nothing to worry about as long as you possess truthfulness, honesty, and undetected secret accounts in the British Virgin Islands.

Poverty Level
Data gathered by the National Statistical Coordination Board showed poverty level in the country has remained unchanged since 2006. President Aquino doubted the results of the study. See? Even the reaction of the sitting president is unchanged.

mmkThe Barrettos
Have you been following the controversial Barretto family feud? Inday Barretto spoke against daughter Gretchen and son JJ for saying nasty things against their youngest sibling Claudine. I mean, with family members like that, who needs the Tulfos?

In a letter published by columnist Ricky Lo, Mommy Inday Barretto defended daughter Claudine against her sister Gretchen. Latest rumors say Gretchen texted Claudine, “If you want a fight, I’ll give you one – anytime, anywhere.” And Claudine replied, “Sure! Tomorrow, NAIA Terminal 3.”

Sound Bites
“It makes me squirm when I watch on television a cleric mouthing a political vocabulary. It makes my toes curl.”
~Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago on the so-called ‘Catholic vote’

“I offer my sincerest apologies to everyone I have ever badgered to register, but I take nothing back. The fact that I have failed to exercise this responsibility myself does not make me wrong about any of that. Although admittedly, it makes me all kinds of stupid.”
~Comelec spokesman James Jimenez admitting that he cannot vote since his registration had been deactivated

Have a fun week ahead!

The american government recently spent 1.5 million dollars on a study – “why are lesbians fat?”
In these times of economic restraint they could have saved the money, and just asked rosie o’donnell and charice.

Watching paint dry must be more exciting than dinner with p-noy, and when the girl inevitably says no to ‘dessert’, does he blame arroyo. ( his reverse oedipus complex is currently working overtime)

Maalaala Mo Kaya is a good example of how TV networks allow themselves to be fooled by their friends.

I lost my respect to MMK!

Poverty – what poverty.
Rolls Royce are planning to open a dealership in philippines due to enquiries/demand.
At 15 million pesos each i would have thought it would be an open invitation to BIR to audit income/taxes of owners.
P-noy will no doubt do the ribbon cutting – and want one.

As someone said
Expecting to be elected without participating in debates is like expecting to be given a job without turning up to the interview.
Whether arrogance, stupidity, or cowardice, not someone you would employ.

Labo, dati na atang politician sa CamSur si Papin. Lilipat ng probinsya pag talo na sa dating pugad? Saklap.
