    We can't blame them. Kung sana nag set na tayo (as electorates) ng example noon pa na wag muna bumoto palagi ng mga artista, hindi sana magkakalakas loob ang mga iyan na tumakbo.

    Common knowledge na wala naman sila ginagawa sa chamber. Nagpapa cute lang. May artista na gumagawa pa ng pelikula, as if being a senator is a part time job (maraming MAS qualified at mas MAY oras para magsilbi-tingin ka lang dito sa tsikot.com )

    Hay..abolish the movie industry!! Para wala ng tatakbong artista! At pag wala ng tatakbong artista, wala ng "iiyak iyak" at magdra dramahan pag inabolish na ang senate!

    Interesting old (2004) article from http://www.manilatimes.net/others/sp...40503spe2.html which reads in part -

    "The “celebritification” of Philippine politics can be traced back to the political ad ban imposed in 1986 and lifted in 2001, says Campaigns and Grey’s Ong.

    Without political ads, new politicians had no means to get their names recognized by mass voters. This opened the doors of politics for the first time in 1992 to the likes of the comedian Vicente Sotto, who topped the Senate race then, followed by the action star Ramon Revilla. The TV personality and former basketball player Freddie Webb placed 12th.

    By 1998, there were five celebrities in the Senate. Former news anchor Loren Legarda led the list of freshly elected senators, followed by the lawyer and TV/radio host Renato Cayetano, and then Sotto. Another former basketball star, Robert Jaworski, and his father-in-law, reelectionist Revilla, claimed the No. 9 and 10 spots respectively..."

    Kung buhay kaya si Pres. Manuel Quezon ano kaya sasabihin? sabihin pa rin kaya nya ito?
