Philippine Politics: Can’t Answer Questions? Just Dance!


MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Who can forget that awkward interview by television news anchor Karen Davila with senatorial candidate and movie actress Alma Moreno, when, faced by tough questioning, said “do I need to answer the question?”

Well, all that is now behind Moreno, incumbent city councilor of Parañaque.

She doesn’t give interviews any more.  She doesn’t even give campaign speeches.  She would just dance the night away and try to look cute in front of her party’s presidential candidate Vice President Jejomar Binay, and fellow senatorial candidate, boxer Manny Pacquiao.

Good campaign advisers, she must have!

Here’s the dance video, courtesy of Rappler:

Mar Roxas’ Yellowtards Outnumbered By Grace Poe’s Whitetards During Isabela Campaign Rally

SANTIAGO, Isabela (The Adobo Chronicles, Baguio Bureau) –  Liberal Party standard bearer Roxas and his runningmate Leni Robredo prepared themselves to speak to 8,000 people at a scheduled campaign rally in Santiago, Isabela on Thursday night.

But alas, the presidential and vice presidential candidates were very disappointed that only about 2,000 people showed up.

The Yellowtards (supporters of Roxas-Robredo and President Aquino and his cohorts) were hugely outnumbered by the “Whitetards,” supporters of presidential candidate Senator Grace Poe.

As can be seen in this photo of the Santiago rally, there were more whites than yellow.

White chairs, that is.
