double entry, double-dealing
if he is telling the truth, i do not for the life of me understand why senate president manny villar doesn’t simply answer the questions that have been thrown at him regarding that c-5 extension.
kung totoong wala siyang ginawa / ginagawa na mali o labag sa batas, dapat ay siya mismo ang nagtatanggol sa sarili at hindi ang mga kaalyado niya sa senado, e.g., alan peter cayetano at joker arroyo, na sobrang offended that lacson dares accuse the senate president and the senate of corruption. wtf. as if senators were saints.
napapaghalata tuloy na merong itinatago si villar, malamang tungkol sa right-of-way, malamang conflict-of-interrest, and that he’d really rather not have it investigated or made public because it would put him in a bad light, perhaps bad enough to lose him a shot at the presidency. i’m sure he’d like nothing better than the ceasefire that kiko pangilinan is asking for. i suppose this is kiko’s way of being an independent, stop the shooting?
but really, lacson is right, why should the opposition oblige? wala namang executive privilege si villar. he is as accountable as any senator, as any public servant. too bad for him that the timing is terrible vis a vis his 2010 ambition, but such is life.
kung walang ping lacson on the scene, there would have been another, on similar mode, to call villar to account. just as, even if he hadn’t climbed that stage, he would have bumped and cut his forehead anyway, and, lacson exposey or not, he would have been on public exhibit after, with that white white tape by his eyebrow, looking dazed, natauhan kaya?
pana-panahon lang yan, ika nga. maybe it’s time to cut, and cut cleanly? as in, tell all, turn state witness, lol, wouldn’t that be fun! for a change.
