Super Garapal Political Ads

Over lunch today, I saw a tv spot for the partylist group endorsed by Romeo Jalosjos. A google search on the KAKUSA partylist showed that "it has for its chairman emeritus the convicted child rapist and former Zamboanga del Norte Rep. Romeo Jalosjos. It is supported by the Lamb of God Foundation and by the outreach program for elderly inmates reported to be established by Jalosjos." What really got my attention is that in the tv spot, Jalosjos was surrounded by children, male and female! For crissake! Is this not the Romeo Jalosjos who was convicted of statutory rape for having sex with a child?

I held my peace for quite a while because I just do not have that much spare time in my hand. I thought that the battlecry of De Venecia, "Palabra de Honor, Dedikasyon, Delikadeza" was repugnant in its lowliest form, for how can you claim delikadeza when you joined in the bidding of a multi million peso ZTE project while your father is the Speaker of the House? But this ad of jalosjos comes along and I can't stop puking.

Hay, Pilipinas Kong Mahal!
