Family and politics

IN FAIRNESS, dragging in Noynoy’s name in what essentially is a spat between two TV personalities (and two TV networks) is grossly unfair. Noynoy had as much to do with Kris’ supposed cattiness and tactlessness as Manny Villar may have had to do with Willie Revillame’s crassness and arrogance, or Dolphy’s way with women.
Before this latest imbroglio, political circles were abuzz with how Kris’ influence would increase exponentially should her brother top the elections. I even heard apprehensions about how Kris and her “best buddy,” co-host Boy Abunda, would end up dictating policy in Malacañang, which is absurd not because Kris and Boy are incompetent or “pang-showbiz lamang,” but because I doubt if Noynoy and his advisers would allow them any leeway.
