Scylla And Charybdis

President Arroyo has admitted she’s the one in the “Hello Garci” tape and has apologized for what she says was a “lapse in judgment” not cheating.

Sycophants of PGMA are now calling on the people to forgive her and move on. The opposition, on the other hand, is now calling for her to step down. Both camps are taking the “moral high ground” on this issue.

There are those who insist that we must set higher standards of conduct for those who hold the presidency. Yet if PGMA is taken out, the pragmatists counter, who will take her place? They’re now calling for a snap election—a solution that will use the same faulty electoral system which brought us to this mess in the first place.

To be academic or to be pragmatic? That is the question. The answer will propel our country to heights or new lows in the coming months.

Meanwhile, I’m getting tired of this whole circus. I wish the earth would open up and gobble everyone alive, from Malacañang to the Senate to the House and everyone in between, including opposition members and political pundits of all leanings.

Oh jeez.

Imagine yourself fighting at Edsa Dos. Then Defending the person who is the point of Edsa Tres. And now, here we are at the point of Booting that very same person who became the focal point of them all.

Its like I was a soldier who fought WWI and WWII. I've seen too much wars in in less than a decade alone.

TRIPPY: Hay naku, iha. You forget I was even in the original EDSA back in '86. Tapos buhay na ako nung nag-First Quarter Storm (although I was too young to even know that it was already happening around us).

So you see, I'm tired of ALL our leaders whether currently in power or those dying to grab power.

SHET SILANG LAHAT.
