After my “highly successful” election blogs, I stopped blogging about this election. I’m twittering, yes, but I just kind of felt that the blog world has gone ugly already, I don’t want to add anything more to what it is now.
Election season is fun, if you’re a masochist.
Villar accusing Noynoy of being a lunatic. Noynoy accusing Villar of being a fraud. Gordon telling everybody that he alone has the qualification to run the country. Erap blaming Villar for following his footsteps (can I hear Stock Exchange?). And everyone else claiming of being better than Noynoy.
But wait, there’s still more. Villar apparently loosing, turned to his weak, wheel-chaired mom. Don’t they have anything more to use that they have to resort to this pathetic move? Lately, I’m annoyed at Noynoy and his team conditioning the public for another people power. Seriously, winning isn’t everything dude.
Worst is, even our icons are fighting. Just read a long tweet from Kris Aquino today:
I saw endorsement tvc of Pinoy sports icon saying words to the effect na laban ng laban wala naman napatunayan. In politics, Noy has won 3 straight terms sa Congress & won almost 15 million votes sa Senatorial in 2007. How sad na he didn’t think na in politics- knock out nga sya. In politics si Noy ang may napatunayan because Noy has never lost an election! Ika nga, undefeated ang record nya!
Apparently, this pertains to Manny Pacquiao in his endorsement commercial for Villar. I agree with TV princess Kris Aquino, the commercial is done with bad taste. Especially that it’s our pambansang kamao who said those words. But, hey, Manny Pacquiao is Manny Pacquaio. He can say whatever he wants to say.
I’m really, really tired already. Seriously.
I’m thinking of having a TV News fast for the next 7 days. Seeing these people fight, throw mud at each other, makes me want to throw up.
Let’s just get over with this one, quickly. We have other things to do. And yes, we should vote and pray for honest elections. But our hope is not solely dependent on these people — contrary to what they all claim in their advertisements. Trust God, work hard, love your family. That’s the key to a fulfilled, happy life. Villar and Noynoy and the rest of the candidates are not our super heroes. Let’s not depend on them.
