I was asking the little scarecrow that hangs in the corner of my desk and now the little snowman that hangs in my table lamp about the news that I read for the past six days. No comment. Playing safe guys, eh. Even my stuff toy cat would not give me a reaction. Great!!!. In this little world of mine, I am the only one who is thinking. Brrrrr (makes raspberry sound).
1. Noynoy and Roxas filed their CoCs.
Look who were with them:
Aquino was also accompanied by his sisters Balsy, Pinky, Viel, and television host and actress Kris.
Judy Araneta-Roxas, mother of Mar Roxas, and broadcast journalist and Roxas’ wife Korina Sanchez, were also present at the Comelec.
Methinks, why was the mother of Mar Roxas in the Comelec to accompany the son? (slap self). but of course to give moral support, silly. Takot bang baka umurong na naman. (slap self again. timigil ka na). How did Korina feel to be with the MIL ?
My ex-hubby used to tell me that the MOTHER-IN-LAW problem is a universal phenomenon regardless of culture, race and religion.
Masaya silang dalawa, sila'y magkasama.
Well I expect that the sisters of Noynoy Aquino would be there especially Kris Aquino who does not fail to remind the public that she is helping him financially. Her son is coming up with another album.

Wow! wala akong masabi. Parang gusto ko tuloy pahiram yong kumot namin ni Lee na pampahid ng luha.
Bakit naman kailangan niyang umiyak? Tahan na bunso. Ngayon lang ba niya nalaman na kailangan talaga nang malaking pera para kumandidato? Di ba kaya nga nagwithdraw win si Escudero dahil umurong rin ang mga nagpramis sa kaniya ng pera. Pramis ha? is meant to be broken especially if your survey does not even show one digit. Never mind Gilberto Teodoro. He is a Cojuangco.
Siya yong nag-utos sa kaniyang mga kampon na lagyan ng pako ang kalsada. Siya yong nagpapramis sa kanyang mga alagad na magiging American citizen pag napanalo niya ang kaso niyang gawing State ang Pilipinas. OO insan hanggang ngayon marami pang naniniwala niyan. Sa San Francisco sikat siya sa pagiging notorious.
MANILA, Philippines– (UPDATE) A perennial candidate for president has filed his bid yet again at the Commission on Elections office in . Manila

4. The Political Dynasties Live
I can not find the link but I saw in the news that socialite Baby Arenas (the one rumored to Fidel Ramos) who claimed that she supported the former president accompanied his son Romeo Arenas to file his CoC for representative of a district in a province in Visayas. He could no longer run in Pangasinan. His sister is a congresswoman in Pangasinan. Gina de Venecia, the wife of JDV and the stepmother of Joey de Venecia (who?) is also running for Congress in the fourth district of the province.
Talking about political dynasties.
5. Clamor for GMA to run
— Outgoing President Macapagal-Arroyo is not about to hang her political gloves just yet. MANILA, Philippines
A key political supporter eager to keep Ms Arroyo in government service announced on Sunday that the President had been finally “convinced” to seek a congressional seat in Pampanga in response to an “overwhelming clamor” from local leaders.
Wow, kailangan pa siyang pilitin, itulak at i-convince. Buti di siya nakipagkita sa mga Sisters. O di va katuwa.
