GOOD RIDDANCE FOR NOW

Meanwhile, Palace in-house lawyer Sergio Apostol has been trying out shoe sizes for his mouth, just in case Gloria taps him to take over DOJ permanently.
It’s such a big pie they shouldn’t have to fight over slices.
Comelec chair Ben Abalos is under the gun again. This time it’s for sexcapades connected to the ZTE broadband network deal.
Here’s my prayer for the troubled commissioner:
May you always have good health, may you will always have juicy deals to make, and may you always have beautiful women who will whisper in your ear. “ANG GALING MO LOLO !”
Manuel L. Quezon III makes a hilarious prediction about calling Brenda’s inane bluff to TRO the playing of the Garci tapes in any Senate investigation. (READ “THE LONG VIEW” HERE.)
By Manuel L. Quezon III
Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Richard Gordon are prepared to go to the Supreme Court to ask for a temporary restraining order, or TRO. That is, if the Garci tapes end up being played in the Senate. The unsinkable Santiago warned her colleagues that they’d be liable for violating RA 4200, the Anti-Wiretapping Law, if they did such a thing.
But why just a TRO? If it authorized the playing of the tapes, she said, “the Senate would be an unwitting accessory to a crime.” Unwitting? It seems the battle of wits, with Santiago, Enrile, Arroyo and Gordon being against, and the rest of the Senate, for, the investigation of the latest “Hello, Garci”-related revelations, runs the risk of the tapes being played.
Sen. Panfilo Lacson should promptly play the tapes in open session, and provoke Santiago and Gordon into storming to the Supreme Court demanding not a TRO only but the arrest of every senator who refused to leave the session hall at that point. Or Santiago, with the able-bodied Gordon’s assistance, could wrestle Lacson to the ground, perform a citizen’s arrest, thump anyone who objected on the head with the Senate’s mace, and then go to the Supreme Court.

Husband: You committed adultery with your boyfriend!
Wife: What’s your proof?

A senator delivers a privilege speech alleging the Intelligence Services of the Armed Forces of the Philippines was involved in an illegal phone-tapping operation called Project Lighthouse, and Gloria Arroyo’s personal Justice secretary responds with threats to go after the senator instead of investigating whether or not there was indeed such an illegal operation.

There are no captions in the picture because the printed word can never do justice to the true flavor of Brenda’s pompous Ilonglish.
How can the printed word ever capture Brenda doing an impression of a lousy high school orator complete with cliched hand gestures and inflections on the wrong syLLable?
And this afternoon, she was in top form.

“The problem with these people is they never accepted my challenge to them several years ago that we submit all these tapes, from the “grandmother tape” to the “grandchildren tapes,” for verification by experts from abroad to ensure partiality.
