pulse asia december 2009 vice-presidentiables poll – mar roxas and loren legarda a virtual tie

December 22, 2009 10 comments

mar roxas and loren legarda are on a virtual tie in this poll. this is a much harder read and a more interesting one. while their national totals are on a virtual tie, how they got there are very different.

roxas’ strengths are NCR and visayas which are legarda’s weaknesses. legarda’s strength is luzon while that is roxas’ weakness. there seem to be a clear divide among the voters for both of them in specific areas. it would be interesting to know what the explanations are for the disparities.

there is also a clear disparity between the two on socio-eco class. mar roxas’ strength is at the NCR while it is legarda’s weakness.

GMA7’s “May Bilog Na Hugis Itlog” with the sexbomb girls – educational???

May bilog, may bilog na hugis itlog
Mare, mare,
May ikukuwento ako sa ‘yo, puwede?
Oo naman mare! Puwede!
Simula na po ang automation
Sa darating na twenty ten elections
Sa automation bibilis
bibilis ang bilangan
Kaya lalong dapat nating bantayan
Nasa balota na, mga pangalan
ng kandidatong pagpipilian
Alamin na po natin ang automation
Paano nga ba’ng gagawin?
Ano bagong instruction?
May bilog, may bilog na hugis itlog
May bilog, may bilog na hugis itlog
Ang kailangan sa bilog
ay simpleng-simple lang
Itiman, i-shade loob ng bilog
Hanapin ang bilog sa tapat ng pangalan
ng kandidatong napupusuan
Ang bilog, ang bilog
sa tapat ng pangalan
‘Yan ang dapat nating markahan
Gets mo ba?
Gets ko na!
Gets na gets na talaga!
Computer ang magbabasa
ng ating mga balota
Kung mali ang pagmarka
Baka boto mo’y mabasura
Balota mo’y alagaan
Boto’y makapangyarihan
Huwag gusutin o dungisan
Upang tiyak na mabilang
Ang boto mo, boto mo
Pumili tayo ng tuwid
ng may paninindigan
Tunay na lider na magsisilbi sa bayan
Yan ang kailangan
Kailangan ng bayan
Isang Presidente
Bise Presidente
Mga Senador puwede hanggang dose
Isang Congressman
At isang Party List lang
Huwag na, huwag nang dagdagan
Isang Mayor
May Vice Mayor
At kung ilang Konsehal ang kailangan
Isang Gobernador
At kanyang Bise
At kung ilang Bokal puwede!
Hanapin ang bilog
Sa tapat ng pangalan
ng kandidatong napupusuan
Ang bilog, ang bilog
Sa tapat ng pangalan
‘Yan ang dapat nating markahan
May bilog, may bilog na hugis itlog
May bilog, may bilog na hugis itlog
Ang kailangan sa bilog
ay simpleng-simple lang
Itiman, i-shade loob ng bilog
Ang loob ng bilog na hugis itlog
Huwag bibilugan
loob ang dapat itiman
Ang loob ng bilog na hugis itlog

finally someone agrees to be gilbert teodoro’s VP running mate – edu manzano

November 13, 2009 Leave a comment

game ka na ba?

the long wait is over – at last someone has agreed to be gilbert teodoro’s VP runningmate – edu manzano. manzano is more know for being an actor/tv show host and the ex-husband of vilma santos. he used to be vice mayor of makati but his most recent government role is as chair of the Optical Media Board. we see him around town raiding stalls of pirated CDs and computer software.

we do not know if there was some kind of process that LAKAS-KAMPI-CMD applied to choose manzano but we doubt if there was one. they will probably say there was and that edu came out as the best choice, but the truth is the ruling/admin party had not choice. all of the politicians they wanted to be teodoro’s VP backed out, even his own party mate, secretary ronaldo puno and manzano’s ex governor vilma santos.

lets see how the tandem of teodoro and manzano will work out. actors in nationally elected positions  based on the last election tended to bomb ouot. maybe manzano will break the trend.

just think – edu manzano vs loren legarda vs mar roxas???? well….
