CALAMBA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – The Philippine politician who celebrated his 58th birthday with dancing women in skimpy clothes said he is so straight he saw nothing wrong about objectifying women for fun.

Laguna Rep. Benjamin Agarao downplayed a live show of scantily clad women dancing on top of men during the celebration of his birthday and of 40 years in government service on Thursday. It was largely an event organized by the Liberal Party of the Aquino administration.

Reports first floated that the dancing women were sent to the event by Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chief Francis Tolentino. But Agarao denied this, saying the lewd performance was brought by his friend.

Agarao maintained that the lewd performance was held after the oathtaking of LP members in Laguna, earlier attended by LP standard bearer Mar Roxas.

While the event drew a firestorm of criticism, an unlikely ally came to the defense of the Liberal Party — American pop star Miley Cyrus.

Yes, the same Miley Cyrus who twerked her way on stage with singer Robin Thicke at last year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

Speaking to reporters in Hollywood, Cyrus defended the Philippine lewd show, saying that “twerking is a skillful performance act, one that is akin to ballet or tap dancing.”

“Filipinos need to grow up,” Cyrus said, “and leave politics out of performace art and vice versa!”

Encouraged by the inspiring words of Cyrus, the Liberal Party is reportedly considering a new politival campaign theme of “Tuwad na daan ” (bending path), a take-off from the Aquino’s anti-corruption mantra of “Tuwid na daan.” (straight path).

So, ‘twerk pa more!’ (More twerking!)

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles) – Donald Trump, who has just announced that he was running for president of the United States, has been accused of paying actors to attend his presidential bid announcement in New York this week.  But there’s more.

The business mogul, who admitted he was filthy rich during his announcement, has reportedly ennlisted all Miss Universe title holders for the last ten years to be his campaign managers. (Trump is the owner of the Miss Universe Pageant).

The Donald told reporters that engaging the beauty queens in his campaign would be the best strategy to beat his potential woman opponent in the 2016 elections, Hillary Clinton.

Sounds like a case of ‘Beauty and the Beast,” doesn’t it?

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Manny Pacquiao might be heavily favored by the Filipinos to win in this Saturday’s (Sunday, Philippine time) welterweight boxing championship against American Floyd Mayweather, but the Filipino boxer’s chances of becoming president is very slim.

Actor Dingdong Dantes is the overwhelming choice among likely voters in the 2022 Philippine presidential elections.

Last week, The Adobo Chronicles reported that Dantes is being groomed to be the Liberal Party’s standard bearer in 2022, while Pacquiao has been anointed the presidential candidate for the opposing Nacionalista Party.

In a scientific poll conducted by the Chronicles, Dantes, 34, leads Pacquiao, 36, by almost 3 to 1. An overwhelming 71.15% of respondents said that they will vote for the actor, compared to only 28.85% who said they will vote for the boxer. (Both are under-age to qualify for the 2016 elections.  The minimum age to run for Philippine president is 40.)

Capture

When it comes to politics, Filipinos seem to look up to their screen heroes over their sports heroes. And we’re not even talking about qualifications here.
