Obama-Palin Dream Team

I guess the only way for basketball stars to grab more gold medals in the Olympics is to introduce more variety to the sports in the future summer games. For instance, one-on-one, two-on-two, three-on-three, and mixed doubles and triples. Maybe, there should also be a slam dunk, free throw line and three-point shootout.

Adidas has popularized, for example, the three-on-three basketabll genre. The NBA has its legend+male+female basketball exhibit during the All-Star week.

If this comes to fruition, I believe USA would have its real “dream team” in the mixed doubles. I refer to a blockbuster, hard-to-beat Obama-Palin tandem.

Yeah, Barry and the Barracuda could easily lick any competition … on and off the court!

Now he is an expert on Mindanao!

Ha ha ha! This is interesting.

Former President Joseph Estrada revealed last Friday that Rodolfo Lozada Jr., the Senate’s star witness in the cancelled national broadband network (NBN) deal with ZTE Corp. of China, has sought his help as his relationship with the civil society group Black and White Movement (BWM) has turned sour.

Estrada, who visited The STAR office, said Lozada showed him a PowerPoint presentation of the controversial memorandum of agreement (MOA) on ancestral domain which the Supreme Court stopped from being signed by the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front early this month.

“The Americans have a hand on the MOA on ancestral domain according to Lozada. He visited me with the sisters (nuns) last week,” Estrada said. – Estrada says Lozada sought his assistance (Philippine Star, August 31, 2008)

Ha ha ha! Akbayan Mindanao must be praising high heavens that its “hero” is now also – ha ha ha – an expert on the Mindanao peace process.

Ha ha ha! I say let’s nominate this guy to the London Olympics. We can enter him in at least two events – Finals of scene stealing and Finals of biting the hands that feed him (please see my post on New Olympic events for GRP). He can handily win the gold in the latter event with his vast track record.

To name a few: First, he enjoyed all the pomp and perks while he was in the corridors of power but made an instant u-turn when about to get caught. Second, he turned snitch on his co-conspirators in “moderating their greed” to save his own skin. To him the tongpats is ok kung hindi bubukol until the scandal became too hot to  handle. And now, he is severing ties with the civil society that paraded him before altars and campuses and made him a “hero.”

Ha ha ha!

After squandering public funds, taking advantage of “sanctuary funds,” and enjoying Senate “security funds,” now this guy is turning to the man thrown out of office for gambling “slush funds!”

Ha ha ha!

This guy is not only after fortune and fame. He wants to dip his fingers in Mindanao too! And goes to the president who waged a “total war” in Mindanao.

Ha ha ha! So, this is the “hero” of Akbayan Mindanao!

Incidentally, did I mention that I resigned from Akbayan last April due to this “fake hero?” Aw, but that’s another story.

Let me just state that I simply cannot stay a minute longer in an organization that prefers fake heroes and attacks persons like me for standing up for our overseas workers whom I described as our “genuine national heroes.”

Ha ha ha!

Let me please enjoy my last laugh. Ha ha ha!

New Olympic events for GRP

In the midst of finger-pointing and the blame game

it’s back to square one for Team Philippines as the debacle in Beijing takes center stage at next week’s sports summit of sports leaders.

I strongly suggest that the country, aka GRP (to align with GB, host of the 2012 Games), concentrate in the following events where I am certain our sports leaders can easily take podium positions:

Finals of the sleeping on the job race:

Finals of scene-stealing event:

Finals of the sweeping our problems under the mat:

Finals of easily giving up on peace and love:

Finals of not taking full responsibility:

And lastly, please do not blame poverty, in the Finals of biting the hands that feed us and eating the goose that lays the golden medals:

I’m pretty sure that the GRP would win hands down in these six events in London.

Vice President

I received my Barack email about his VP choice at 9:37 a.m. ET.

Friend —

I have some important news that I want to make official.

I’ve chosen Joe Biden to be my running mate.

Joe and I will appear for the first time as running mates this afternoon in Springfield, Illinois — the same place this campaign began more than 19 months ago.

I’m excited about hitting the campaign trail with Joe, but the two of us can’t do this alone. We need your help to keep building this movement for change.

Please let Joe know that you’re glad he’s part of our team. Share your personal welcome note and we’ll make sure he gets it:

Thanks for your support,

Barack

It was about eight hours late than my first news alert

But the second email I got from the Obama campaign was quite as fast as Usain Bolt. They asked me to donate for the newly minted Democratic team. For $15, I get the first edition Obama-Biden car magnet.

Oh, how about a round of applause? Yeah, standing ovation? Ooh, oh yeah!

The above line incidentally is from Rihanna’s hit Take a Bow.

I think I would stick to my first choice and go for the Paris-Rihanna tandem.

Race to the pink house

I had a gooood laugh for my lunch today.

Paris Hilton is hot. Both as a celebrity and as an endorsed presidential bet.

Paint the White House pink? Wow! Real coooool white-haired dude!

If she were to crush Barack Obama and John McCain this November, she could be the second president to paint a presidential palace pink. The first was in Argentina where the old presidential residence is called the Pink House or Casa Rosada.

Here’s the picture I took of the pink palace from my cell phone at the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires.

Evita Peron and Madonna were among the famous celebrities like Paris seen at the historic balcony of this most photographed building in Argentina.

If Bayani Fernando were to have his “Marikina Way” and wrest control of Manila’s Malacanang Palace in the 2010 elections, he could be the 3rd president to paint a presidential office pink.

Good enough for the bronze!

As a brown American, I would vote for Paris for her wit and common sense like her energy policy and choice of VP.

Yup, Rihanna is what Paris needs to cover her Pink House in Washington DC under an umbrella!

Ha ha ha!
