Message sent: Concentrate on Boxing muna, Manny

Mukhang talo si Manny Pacquiao kay Darlene Antonino Custodio para sa Congressional seat for the 1st District of South Cotobato.

It doesn't mean na ayaw ng tao kay Pacman, o hindi siya popular. What the voters are saying is: We care for you Manny, that's why we don't want to see you enter politics for now. Concentrate ka muna sa flourishing boxing career mo. That's why we are not voting for you yet.

Sabi ng ng isang Manny Pacquiao fan:

“Matigas kasi ang ulo. Dapat sa boxing na lang siya. Mahal namin siya at ayaw naming pumasok talaga sa maruming pulitika,” said Daniel Aguila, a cigarette vendor from an old Blumentritt neighborhood and a certified Manny fateful.

And that's the sentiment of the majority of pacman fans i know.

More of my own views here.

on actors et al going into politics: voters’ enlightened choice may still be a work in progress…but, hey, everything has to start somewhere.

some WON probably from their track record, like cong. dan fernandez, cong. mikey arroyo, gov. vilma santos, vice-mayors herbert bautista and isko moreno, councilors aiko melendez, (?) alma moreno, and (?) marjorie barretto. the latter, a carry-over of dennis padilla’s track record possibly.

NOW, goma’s back to his long-forgotten singing career while victor is singing his way back to his career. boyet has to wait for another team-up project with vilma…not to shoot in batangas (!), he hopes. manny is punching bob for another multi-million bout. it’s bulagaan for anjo and (?) tito again. i don’t know what awaits cita astals, robert ortega, and nadia montenegro…but jestoni could sure return to his telenovela stints! rey malonzo’s Recom is winning and martial arts film is probably not a hit nowadays…so, he’s off to his radio program again!

lapid has to go back to his card (Tatlong Baraha) as a seating senator (!) and montano’s off to his own law again (Batas Ko’y Bala)…tough luck for him…for he thought law-crafting may become his bullet!

it’s a pity some actors didn’t heed the advice of Cong. Manik-Manaog (leo martinez) not to go into politics…but who’s to blame when popularity heeds the call?

…how about board member angelica jones’ (sexy star from 3rd district of Laguna) triumph (not her bra, mind you!) and vice-mayor teri onor’s (Eat Bulaga regular from Abucay, Bataan) win? mere popularity may have been the case here. i guess, their kababayans truly love them…

“…Base sa resulta ng nakaraang May 14 elections, mas maraming mga artista ang natalo kesa nanalo. Siguro’y magiging aral na ito sa iba pang mga celebrities na nagbabalak na tumakbo sa mga susunod na eleksiyon.

Sa personal naming opinyon ay wala namang masama kung tumakbo man ang mga taga-showbiz. May ilan naman sa kanila na napatunayan na maaari ring maging epektibong pulitiko ang mga artista.

Sa kasaysayang ng pulitika sa Pilipinas ay naluklok na sa lahat ng puwesto ang mga artista, mula sa Presidente hanggang sa kagawad. Ibig sabihin, pinagkakatiwalaan ng mga Pinoy ang mga artista dahil sa pangalan at reputasyon nila. Kaya nasa mga artista na rin kung paano nila pangangalagaan ang tiwalang ito at hindi maging tiwali.

I agree. Manny should just focus on


boxing and training. i hope his loss taught him a lesson.
