unwitting court jesters of the world, filipinos are, the philippine government, even religious leaders, included. we’re always good for a laugh or two, laglag bala being only the latest gaffe that has the world laughing in exasperation if not in pain, for us. as for the looming summit, we won’t even need stand-up comics to entertain putin and obama atbp. happily shutting down this third world economy so world leaders can safely party for their economic gains is already too tragic-comic for words anyway. esp because the palace doesn’t get it. joke’s on us.
