The iconic Conrado de Quiros and the redoubtable Billy Esposo, two columnists I look up to and who have never been less than generous with me, have written recent columns that strike me as more partisan than necessary, or indeed as intended. On the junking of Mar Roxas, Noynoy Aquino’s running mate, Conrad has written much the more nuanced analysis; Billy’s defense of this political maneuver is ruder and rawer, and thus harder to digest. But I hope I am not mistaken in taking their columns the second part of Conrad’s is in today’s edition as all of a piece.
I trust they will forgive my temerity.
I was not involved in any political campaign, but I do have many friends in many of the political camps. Although I think I now understand the big picture, it will take me some time to sort out all the facts; for now, I will only take issue with Conrad’s analysis, and expose Billy’s illegitimate arguments.
