Here is a tidbit that transpired in Cory Aquino's funeral cortege that I be would have great repercussions on one's politico's. I quote in full the blog post of Happy Feraren. Happy is daughter #4's high school classmate. Here goes.

Shame on You Jamby Madrigal

Now that we’ve remembered, relived and recreated the spirit of ’86 let’s make sure this yellow ribbon doesn’t get tangled up in other people’s political campaigns.

Subtle electioneering IN A FUNERAL?!?! SHAME ON YOU. Do not ride on Cory’s wave to pursue your vested interest. The people who waited in the streets weren’t there to see you! The revolution doesn’t belong to you, phony politician, it belongs to the people. And what makes you think you could get away with such a dirty trick? Cory’s lasting impression of sincerity, humility and honesty is now the benchmark of what leaders are supposed to be. You think people don’t see through you? The respect we have for Cory is not something you acquire with falsity (or through endorsement from Judy Ann Santos) it is earned. How dare you pose as someone offering sympathy to the Aquino family while you think about the votes you’re going to get come election time.

As I waited for the cortege (news networks’ new favourite word) along the South Super Highway, my mom and I bought 2 yellow umbrellas from this street vendor who was also selling nuts. And then as we paid, he pulled out something from his pocket – a yellow beaded bracelet nicely packed in a small clear plastic bag. Upon handing it over to us, he said: “Eto o, bonus para sa inyo.”Of course my mom and I were pleased and were all “awww how sweet.”Until I actually looked at the bracelet and saw a little tag with the name and photo of Jamby Madrigal.

I called out to him and asked, “O bakit may Jamby Madrigal itong bracelet na ito” and when I looked at the vendor for an answer he had already walked away.

Maybe an hour before this incident, I saw her car passing by the growing sea of people. Window open, flashing the L sign and strangely enough, a cameraman in front filming the people. My mom started shouting “Transparencyyyy!” and then I looked at her asking if I could put up my middle finger and my mom looked at me and said I should just shout transparency, accountability or good governance. In other words “BOOOOOOOO!!!!” And then the two of us just started shouting BOO JAMBY!!!

I am utterly disgusted by you, Ms.Madrigal. And to you other filthy politicians, behave yourselves because we are all watching you, even if you’re supposedly Cory’s “favorite” mayor. Genuine democracy is People Power and everything Ninoy and Cory stood for. It also means that now, whenever there’s a phony claiming he or she is there to protect Cory’s legacy, we will be able to speak up and act with the same fearless fervour we had before.

You know sometimes I wish I could march in the government offices with a magical broom that can sweep away all the dirty politicians we have in this country. A giant clean up, but this time not just for the environment but for our government. Haha, imagine if we could really do that? I’m already writing down the names of the people I’d attack first with my magic walis!

So, before you file for candidacy (a bit too late though in this case) think again. Actually, good luck! The people have remembered.

It is possible that Senator Jamby Madrigal has nothing to do with this inappropriate act. The idea to give away Jamby-pictured-bracelet might have been the "brilliant" of one of her supporters. But then again, who are we kidding? Remember the Halili-Kho fiasco at the Senate where the trio los bobos precided? I rest my case.

  1. Yup. I think those "anal beads" Jamby gave out should have been shoved back at her ... I think "down her throat" should do. :) It just reminded us of how selfish she happens to be. And how inconsiderate she can be.

    Yes. I think more and more people should point out that trick Jamby tried to pull.

  2. grabeh, ang kapal ha. bastusan kung bastusan. tsk.

  3. It still baffles me how some people can be that insensitive.


  4. @ barako brew: oh, i think a better situation would be "shoving it down her ass". :). i am now doing my best to encourage new young voters to register. these college kids would prove to be the new voice of hope for the Philippines. dapat hindi na pabotohin ang mga bobo at boba na kayang tapalan ng 500 piso para iboto ang mga mas lalo ng bobo at boba na politiko.

    @ voiceofbragg: thanks!

    @ eMz: o di ba? btw, did you win in that award thingy?

    @ huling: US citizen ka na ba? if not, register online to be able to vote in 2010. deadline is on aug. 31.

  5. nakakahiya yung ginawa niya...makapal talaga ang mukha...hindi niya makukuha ang boto ko..

  6. ang daming mapagsamantala nung time na yun. kahit naman wala sila gaanong sinasabi, mommy you're right... who are they kidding?

  7. Jamby Madrigal made me laugh when she announced her presidential bid. She'll make a very good comedianne!

    Nakalimutan na rin ata nya na si Juday lang ang nagpanalo sa kanya, sana sinama nya ulit si Juday sa picture.

  8. @ raymund: i did not vote for her last time more so this time.

    @ nancy: good decision with you buying an acu.e kaya nga we, as concerned pinoys should campaign to chose the right people for gov't seats.

    @ domjullian: kaw tlaga, e mukhang clown naman talaga si jamby with her droopy eyes and real slow way of talking. jamby for prexy? bakit ganun na ba tingin nya sa mga Filipino ? na bobo tayo?

    hindi na raw kasama si juday sa campaign. ayaw payagan ni kuya ryan. :)

  9. shame on her indeed! at kahit sino pa ang kuhanin nyang endorser..she'll never earn a vote from me and my hubby.

    sobrang kapal ng face!!! :)

  10. Not only shame on Jamby, but other politicians who were there....not to show genuine sympathy to the Aquinos, but to be able to gain the votes of most Filipinos. Hoy gising my kapwa pinoy! Wag iboto walang hiyang mga yan!!
