The Clinton strategy was clear: To murder Barack Obama in South Carolina, a predominantly Black populace, Hilary should create a diversion through taunting and false allegations while Bill goes behind him and slits his throat. Unfortunately for them, Barack was prepared.
This was the diversion: Hillary threw a slight jab at Barack saying he supported the ideas of Ronal Raegan, who of course was Republican, and Barack clarified it by saying he respected Raegan for being able to get Democrats to their Party, but opposed his ideas – of globalization, off shore employment (basically all the republican capitalism we already know). Barack went on to say that Hillary was on the Walmart board as he rallied against Raegan’s ideals.
The second bitch-slap came when Barack implied that he was also running against Bill Clinton who was, as the South Carolina campaign moved on, throwing a much publicized smear campaign against Barack:
Now, we all know that Bill Clinton is a respectable figure in politics. Certainly an asset who could still get the front page. But when you have him dozing off at church preaching about Martin Luther King, that kinda dwindles the respectability factor. Lolz!
Back to Barack: In the second part of the debate, which was more informal and supposedly more evil, Barack was asked if Bill Clinton was the “first black president” for his support of the Black community (which is why he is the best person to create that smear campaign):
Now, let us remember, there is that guy John Edwards who certainly looked magnanimous in the onset of the bickering. But he’s always prim and proper I can’t exactly say I see a president who’s “for the people.”
We’ll see the results of last nights debate this Saturday.
There’s something oddly wrong about the title, at least as a statement, and at least in the manner that I encountered it this morning. It came from a guy who sent it to a girl being harassed online, so, my take on it is, that it was only used for the machismo. This statement was also made through an e-mail, so you can tell no wringing of the neck would ever take place.
But where everyone is entitled to their angsts, for me using the word ‘wring‘ only makes one less worthy of it.
To put it in perspective, ‘wring‘ is not an abnormal word for me, but in the instance that you’re called upon to be Prince Charming, when a word has similar meanings as break, twist, wreck, choke and strangle, lame-ass words will do.
And I know… some people are just born with the innate ability to use words that profoundly describe moments or convey emotions, and wringing of necks aren’t at all alien, and conio people abound everywhere; still, using that word wont bring you anywhere near impressive.
At any rate, I think the only thing this statement does is commit you to the word. Now everyone’s waiting for you to do exactly as you described. Unfortunately, it’s false arrogance.

The blogosphere seem to be frothing with topics on how to run the Philippines these days (heck, how to run the United States even). I usually just rely on MLQ3 for these things, and God knows I link him once a month for all the wonderful link-summaries he’s written. All the rest, I take to be yosi buddies – people who help keep my brain working while doing something totally unproductive. Lolz!
Today a friend told me that the Philippines actually tops Google searches for politics; almost twice the searches compared to the United States which has four times the population. I told her, “that’s no surprise” since politics is as much a part of the Filipino as Flor de Luna, Anna Luna, Ula (ang batang gubat), Mara Clara, and Marimar.
It’s 3am and I’m forcing myself not to blog. My hands are pulling itself to the keyboard, my mind is creating stories in my head, my legs want to kuyakoy. Usually, i’d just be forcing myself to sleep. Ngayon meron nang kahati ang oras ko sa pagtulog. How odd is that?
Over the course of my blogging ‘karir’ (coz it’s not a real career), I have been able to pull out one post after another.
SERIES One of the series I’ve been most comfortable dealing with is Blog Drop. This is where I discuss the filipino blogging community and will most often put a remark on fake blogs, who blog for corrupt reasons. Another series I put up was the 100 Things You Wouldn’t Care to Know About Me. So far I’ve only finished 10.
FICTION So far I’ve only written The Death of Peter Pan. This I plan to make a series by writing stories that end up in some cartoon characters death, as if to create closure! Next in line is The Death of Buzz Lightyear. I’m also thinking about killing the Care Bears, The Jetsons and Denver, the Last Dinosaur.
A friend challenged me to write something queer. I haven’t taken him up on that but I will… because I have been re-dared by Rhey in exchange of her writing about Planet Z. mwahaha. It’s like writing a highschool paper, but with more spunk. You can suggest too… I like the challenge.
DRAFTS Often times I write posts that can be a bit controversial or self-destructive. I usually save those as drafts until I could come up with better ways to present it. One of them is the series A Blueprint of Things That Should Never Have Happened. I also plan to put up a series about the stupidity of the showbiz industry. I didnt want to post something showbiz before coz I think it’s stupid, but I guess writing about the stupidity isn’t stupid at all. errr… Gets nyo?
Caught this from the blog of Chuvaofthechenes. I couldn’t help but post another blog at 4am. I know many might think it’s wrong but I appreciate all forms of art, specially those that are made on corroded concrete walls. This is Pilipinastreetplan. You can also check Vermonyo’s…
Before you leave please complete the statement: THIS IS THE MOST AWESOME THING TO COME OUT OF THE PHILIPPINES SINCE… (sample answer below)
paolo: this is the most awesome thing to come out of the Philippines since Borgy had fake sex with Vina.
k-fez: this is the most awesome thing to come out of the Philippines since Andrew E. released ‘Humanap Ka ng Panget’
