gloria should go

04 August 2009

… to the wake, i mean.   and she knows it.   not so much for the nation — we can take or leave protocol, i find — but for the international community.     the whole world is watching.   she has to handle this right, or lose face.

the news is that she’s arriving at 5 a.m. which gives her a few hours to get to the cathedral before the 9 a.m. show.   the question is, what time should she go.   soon after she gets back, habang kokonti ang tao, habang wala pa ang mga aquino?   or should she wait until the aquinos are there so she can personally extend her sympathies as well?   or her flight could be delayed, haha.   we’ll know soon enough.

nakarma naman talaga si gloria.   what rotten luck that the obama summons came when it did.  if she had been here when cory died, she could have simply appeared at the la salle wake the moment cory was ready and gotten it over with, before it became an issue.

shecould also have accepted graciously the aquino family’s preference for a private funeral, sabay pakiusap for even just half a day’s lying-in-state in congress and / or malacanang.   tama rin naman yung mga nagsasabing cory deserves a state funeral.   i would not have minded seeing legislators as well as the executive paying homage to cory and promising to keep the cory spirit alive.

as for cory’s post-garci demand that gloria resign, which the aquinos may well refuse to ease up on, well, in the spirit of the times gloria could offer them an ex-deal.   instead of resigning she’d stop all con-ass attempts during the remainder of her term, and she’d admit her mistakes re the national artist awards and the jbc list.   wouldn’t that be fantastic?

i know, i know, i’m dreaming, haha.   si cory kasi.

    for a moment there, i was looking at her picture and thought… was she asking Cory if she would resign?! hahaha

    I’ve thought of that soon after I heard Cory die–until the end the former President tried to undo the Arroyo wrong. What perfect timing to prevent the Bogus from getting propaganda mileage from the Obama meet!

    kapag ba dumating ang oras ni Arrovo na sya na ang kinuha, umaasa ba sya na ganyan din ang makikiramay sa kanya? well goodluck sa kanya. she should start planting seeds of sincerety, honesty and humility. sabagay kahit na magsimula sya ngayong mismong araw na to e malabo may maniwala pa sa kanya. nakakaawa ang babaeng ito. tsk tsk tsk
