The Best President We Never Had

"If you don't like me, I don't like you double"
Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago
1945-2016
Nakalulungkot na sa pagtatapos ng buwan na itey, namaalam na sa atin si Sen. Miriam Santiago. If I remember it right, mahigit apatnapung taon niyang pinaglingkuran ang sambayanang Pilipino. Nagsimula sa pagiging special assistant ng Secretary of Justice noong 1970 hanggang sa tumakbong pangulo ng bansa ngayong taon. Halos lahat, sinasabing siya ang the best president we never had. Kwento nga ni La Mudra, kung hindi daw nag-brownout noong 1992 habang binibilang ang mga boto, malamang, si Miriam ang nanalo.

She was my favorite senator along with Sen. Juan Flavier. Now, magkasama na sila sa langit. Madame senator, I just want to thank you for the service you've given to us. Thank you for the wonderful record and for inspiring the youth. Ikaw lang yata ang senador na minahal nang ganito kabongga ng mga kabataan. Your wit, intelligence and quotable quotes will stay with us for a long time. Isa ka sa mga dahilan kung bakit hanggang sa huli, may katalinuhan pa rin sa senado kahit na sinalakay ito ng mga action stars, comedian at boksingero. 

RIP, mi favorita senadora.

That second to the last line of your article...so true.

Yes, especially yung P*****!***9 Boksingerong yun.

Samahan mo pa nung isang senador, may instant Kalyeserye ka na.


As for your last line, Yup am also also grieving and sorta nanghihinayang. We now know the reason why she didn't win, hindi talaga ukol, kumbaga. Mahirap kung mawawala sya agad pag-upo sa pwesto,provided nanalo si madam. Sana noong una or ikalawang attempt nya nanalo sana.Yung kay FVR, forgivable pa, given di dinaya talaga but then sana nung nakalaban nya si Erap, siya sana ang nagwagi. Oh well *Sigh*
