Dispatches from the Enchanted Kingdom
By MANUEL BUENCAMINO

Safely ensconced in his adopted country, thousands of miles away from the reach of any libel suits, self-exiled communist leader Jose Maria “Joma” Sison boldly accused a sister of President-elect Benigno S.C. Aquino III of conspiring with Gloria Arroyo and the CIA to cheat in the 2010 elections. I decided to interview the man hiding in the Netherlands.

“Let me read to you what you said in your interview with Pinoy Weekly.”

“Okay.”

“There are indications that the automated electoral system of Smartmatic, which is controlled by the US and its agents, was pre-programmed to make Aquino and Binay win. It’s obvious that a large number of votes were stolen from Manny Villar and Loren Legarda. Their precipitous decline was overkill and unbelievable. There are reports that high officials of the CIA, the Aquino family and the Arroyo regime decided on the pre-programming six weeks before the election. The meeting between Pinky Aquino-Abelleda and Mrs. Arroyo paved the way for the arrangement.”

For the love of Noynoy Aquino
Method To Madness
By PATRICIA EVANGELISTA

MANILA, Philippines—It is Independence Day in the land of the yellow morning, where the moon is a greasy pearl, freedom is a Twitter hashtag and the brave bawl in their cradles unless the cradles were pawned for the rose-red heart of a bottle of cheap gin. Philippine Airlines offers a “Proud and Free” Promo for the patriotic Filipino—$135 for Hong Kong, $690 for Honolulu, $790 Las Vegas not including government taxes and ticketing service fees. In New York’s 20,000-strong Filipino community celebration, Christian Bautista sings “Beautiful Girl” and “Can We Just Stop and Talk Awhile,” Carlo Orosa soars with the “Impossible Dream,” Sarah Geronimo is “well-applauded” for “You Changed My Life,” and fortunately remembers to sing “Magkaisa.”

Out on the Quirino Grandstand, on a stage with “a select group of 180 people,” the woman rumored to have a heart harder than the rampaging lead hooves of Leon Guerrero’s horse demonstrates that in the end, all you need is love. If only you could show her love, bring her flowers, buy her a two-piece Jollibee chicken meal in the fast-food court of the nearest SM shopping mall, play her your Jason Mraz ringing tone while holding her hand as you wait in line for tickets to John Lloyd Cruz’s “A Very Special Love.” But this is a woman whose natural milieu is the table beneath a Le Cirque chandelier, and so if love will not appear prostrated before her dragging Gilbert Teodoro, love can be bought, at the price of a P10-million praise parade bought with taxpayers’ money to “showcase the outstanding achievements of the 10-Point Agenda of the Arroyo administration.”

ANYONE who pays their taxes religiously can very well comment on whatever President Noynoy plans to do for his administration, especially if it involves appointing Cabinet Secretaries.

Dispatches from the Enchanted Kingdom
By Manuel Buencamino

“Fight fire with smoke. And mirrors. And a lot of spit.”—from The Firefighter’s Manual of Politics by Philip Gilmore

I dreamed that I interviewed Sen. Manny Villar on the morning after his privileged speech.“Good morning, Senator.”

“Good morning…. Coffee?”

“No, thank you, sir. But thank you for granting this interview. May we start with your priv….

Manny’s Enchanted Kingdom

Dispatches from the Enchanted Kingdom
By Manuel Buencamino

Afriend sent me a text that said, “GMA plundered when she became president. Manny Villar is only a candidate but he already took a cash advance.”

I called her up, demanding an explanation.

She said the draft report of the Senate Committee of the Whole recommended censure for Senator Villar and asked him to return all the money “he has or his companies have illegally gained or obtained as a result of unlawful acts and improper and unethical conduct.”
