A Tale Of Two Wannabees: Gibo, The Anointed And Bayani, The Dreamer

September 15, 2009


Only the well-worn phrase applies here: it’s all over but the shouting.

But it’s puzzling that Mr. Bayani Fernando seems to be the only one still clueless about how the Palaka executive committee will vote to formally crown Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro to head the administration slate on May 10, 2010:

From the very start, I am hoping that my party will choose me. First of all, I am a true Lakas party member. That can never be contested.
Being a loyal party member (since 1982) —that is the most important condition to be considered for the party’s standard-bearer.
This decision will reveal the true character of our party.”

Umaasa ako na sa pagkakataong ito maitataguyod ko ng higit pa ang partidong ito sa tagumpay (I am hoping that I could lead our party to victory).
Sa kabilang banda, iyong aking katunggali sa pagpipilian na ito ay mayroon lang 0.2% sa nasabing mga survey na iyan. Limang doblehin mo man ang maidadagdag ng partido, aabot lang iyan ng isang pursyento (On the other hand, my opponent to be the party’s presidential bet only garnered 0.2% in the said survey. Even if you multiply that 5 times, it will only amount to one percent).
The congress, leagues of governors, councilors and other leagues—must have no say as to who the party will pick(referring to the support of over 70 Lakas-Kampi-CMD congressmen for Teodoro’s bid to be the party’s standard bearer).

Mr. Fernando’s passionate stubbornness is, in a way, admirable.
But whether is posturing are simply tactical, or strategic, he does not realize that all this time he and his handlers have been misreading the public temper.
Demure to fight another day, BF, Sir.
