the president and the pretenders


on his inauguration as the 15th president of the republic, president noynoy was surrounded by more than half a million supporters and more than a handful of pretenders...

#1. gma, on her last march as prez, pretended it was halloween. that should explain why the crowd kept boo-ing.

#2. gma pretended not to see p-noy's extended hand to assist her while going up and down the platform. she was, after all, a little girl no more. huh?

#3. binay pretended to be the president that he secretly wanted to be by accidentally being the last person to come up the stage. what protocol?

#4. ogie alcasid pretended to dance to his self-made noy jingle. the song is not danceable, fyi. it's not even singable.

#5. chief justice corona pretended not to hear the president when he railed about midnight appointees. why not, it could just be his alibi not to resign.

#6. erap pretended to be deaf when p-noy lambasted corruption in government. or maybe he was simply blind.

#7. the megastar pretended to like the queen-of-all-media-turned-presidential-sister in a big way. she must want her hubby to bag the senate presidency so badly.

ironically, it was kris, the showbiz aquino, who had no energy for charades that fateful day. no more james and their sham of a marriage. just a glum look on her face that even her brother's moment of glory could not erase.
