Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

Impeach, Sabay Golly Wow!

And so for the fourth time in her presidency, PGMA is facing yet another impeachment complaint. I guess presidencies have recurring themes: for Ferdinand Marcos it’s cronies, abuse and Imelda’s shoes; for Cory Aquino it’s coup d’etat attempts and blackouts; for Ramos it’s the continuation of blackouts (and their eventual end) and whisperings of Baby Arenas; and for Joseph Estrada it’s gambling, drinking and other lord-like activities.

For the incumbent, impeachment has become a tired (but others will insist, necessary) theme of her presidency. A leading newspaper already stated this early that folks on both sides of the political fence are expecting this latest effort to go the way of the three previous complaints. That doesn’t bode well for this latest one. And after its failure, there will be another failed attempt to grab power by force, perhaps using another upscale hotel or condotel as the venue. I pity the poor front desk manager who will star in the episode here in The McVie Show.

Hay, bilog ang mundo ng Philippine politics. Can we stop and get off?

@MRAUNCH: I want them to take over Sulu Hotel or Camelot Hotel in QC, para maiba naman. At least malapit doon ang mga TV stations.

The latest attempt by the opposition is like a flopped freak show shown in an obscure TV channel.

how about if they hostage a bathhouse? imagine, mga discreet na PLU ma-TTV tapos makikita ng mga nanay at tropa hehehehehehehe....

Kahit sino pa lagay jan sa position ganun pa din...aside from the tax we contribute (ay kayo pala..) have you done anything to help our country? Tayo mismo na simpleng mamayan corrupt din...that's why we make "lagay/tong" pag nahuhuli ng MMDA..or we call a friend who has connections. mashado tyo lahat mareklamo pero parepareho lang tyo...kaya sa susunod na halalan..iboto nyo si mcvie o di kaya si anne curtis for president.
