It's All in the (Aquino) Family

It appears that the 40% of the Filipino people who voted for Penoy are not just getting 1, but 5 presidents! Yes, indeed, folks. What a deal they are getting. In an interview with Ted Failon on June 19, Ballsy admitted that Noynoy might have a difficult time deciding on important matters so Ballsy said she will be watching him like a hawk and, if he still cannot make up his mind, would give him a "final push" into making the "right" decision. And if i guess right, the other 3 sisters will be doing that, too.

Yessiree, ladies and gentlemen. You have elected to the highest office in the land one Penoy and 4 sisters. What a Deal! Kris, from what we have been reading in the papers recently, might be the one tasked to select and lobby for the Senate leadership while sister Ballsy might be in-charge of policy and decision-making, if i am reading the Failon interview correctly. That leaves Ate Viel and Ate Pinky, whose roles in the presidency of five is unclear, for now. So technically, Noynoy's role will be strictly ceremonial with not much brain activity involved.

(But that's not all, folks! When you elected the 5-in-one President, you also got not just their friends, but also the entire Cojuangco-Aquino Clan! That's right! The Kamag-Anak Inc. of yesteryears has evolved into a hybrid group more aptly called Kamag-Anak and Friends, Inc. Look at what you're getting -- Peping Cojuangco, Jim Paredes, Boy Abunda, Ogie Alcasid, Dingdong Dantes... and the list goes on and on!)

It seems clear that the Aquino siblings are taking the Office of the President to a whole new level. It is as if the Presidency, much like their claim on EDSA 1, People Power and the Yellow Ribbon are their God-given birthright and that they, as anointed members of the Philippine Holy Family, are allowed by virtue to share in the power vested in the president by the constitution.

The Office of the President has now become a family business, and many are beginning to realize what the next six years will be like, and it ain't good.
