Shame on you, Manny Pacquiao!

The "No Vote" of Manny (Filipino Superman except Superman’s handsome face) Pacquaio in Twitter was bad taste in the mouth. Voting him for congress work was a waste of precious government funds. He could not even attend a historical session recently that voted for an Article of Impeachment for the Senate to judge an alleged corrupt and incompetent Ombudsperson. The chap is only in Baguio-- a four-hour ride to the House of Representatives. Dereliction of Duty at its worst!
His political idiocy was exposed not only in this absence, but the way he reacted to members of Twitter: “Mag-reklamo kayo sa lolo (it should be lelong) niyong panot (You should complain to your bald grandpa),” he retorted to people at Twitters who criticized his absence in the hall of the House of Representatives last Monday.

Pacquaio actuation was expected because of his poor intellectual status. But this was only aggravated when idiotic Filipino mobs rooted and voted for him in a congressional position that entails some standard, class, and intellect.
Pacquaio should know his place under the sun. It does not mean that his being world class means he could be “great” too in other fields. He should be polishing his chutzpah in the ring, and not in congress. Now that he was exposed, he and his voters should be ashamed of themselves.
Greatness in Boxing does not translate greatness as a member of the August Body.

  1. why do we keep on voting people with questionable intellectual capability as our leaders? Pacquaio is not so dissimilar with Jaworski, Revilla, Estrada, Ejercito. We have heard how Loi reacted or commented in the senate, and I am equally ashame that we have those kind of senators. This is a reflection of voter's intelligence, and the quality of our elite

  2. lahat may karapatan, kanya-kanyang pananaw lang yan. Marami din naman magaling at matalino pero pag pera na pinag-uusapan mag iiba din ang takbo... corruption parin sa gobyerno... kahit sino ang ilagay nyo. ultimo sa pinakamaliit na sangay ng goberyo meron ng corruption, injustice at may pinapaboran. Yan ang gusto ni manny tumakbo at nanalo naman sino dapat sisihin mga botante din. kanino ba dapat simulan ang pagbabago sa politiko o sa ating mamayan?????
