LP’s miting de avance turns festive as candidates dance to Lady Gaga

(Updated 9:22 p.m.) There’s still three days left before the elections, but the mood at the Liberal Party’s miting de avance in Quezon City was already so festive that their candidates were quickly prompted to dance to Lady Gaga’s monster hit, “Bad Romance.”
Celebrity Pokwang managed to get LP standard bearer Noynoy Aquino, vice presidential bet Mar Roxas, and some senatorial bets to shake their hips, clap their hands, and move their feet to the upbeat song before the crowd of thousands who showed up at the party’s miting de avance at the Quezon Memorial Circle.
Even Quezon City mayor Sonny Belmonte and Manila Mayor Alfredo Lim danced with the comedienne, whom Noynoy’s sister Kris introduced to the audience after LP senatorial candidate Risa Hontiveros-Baraquel suddenly fell down in the middle of her speech due to a torn ligament.
ABS-CBN, GMA-7 pull out Binay ads vs Mar
MANILA, Philippines – The Liberal Party (LP) said yesterday that television networks ABS-CBN Channel 2 and GMA Channel 7 have pulled out the advertisements of Makati City Mayor Jejomar Binay for being deceptive and violative of the Fair Election Act.
LP standard-bearer Sen. Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III also assailed Binay for coming out with deceitful ads against his running mate Sen. Manuel Roxas II and asked the networks to stop the infomercials showing an Aquino and Binay or the so-called “Noy-Bi” tandem because they were also misleading.
Aquino, Roxas and LP campaign manager Florencio “Butch” Abad said the networks were able to prove that the video and photograph of Roxas with President Arroyo was doctored to make it appear he was clapping while the Chief Executive was signing the expanded value added tax (EVAT) law.
