And other speeches.
If you were one of those who were able to listen to his Excellency’s last State of the Nation Address or SONA kudos to you. Two and a half hours of good news can be tiring to the ear and a strain on critical thinking. So many good news from this government that we are literally drowning in it. It was a perfect example of a political swan song: A political Con onor muore ala Madame Butterfly: The start of his Excellency’s departure from Malacanang and back to Times Street. Every dog has its good day and Aquino has it but he also has his bad days.
Anyway, Instead of ranting against his Aquinoness it might be more fun to guess what would be the things he would never never never ever say in any of his speeches:
One. “My countrymen, as of the twenty-third of this month, I signed Proclamation #1081 placing the entire Philippines under Martial Law.”
Two. “I remember Ninoy …”
Three. “Democracy is so overrated.”
Four “Walang Kaibi-Kaibigan at walang Kamag-anak-anak!”
Five. “Earn, Respect! Power! BANANA!”
Six. “Its me Its not you”
Seven. “I am sorry”
