while i was so frustrated and so undecided, i heard on the news that Sen. Manny Villar said that “Willie (Revillame is “QUALIFIED” to be a Senator of this country?!”).
here is the complete i found at abs-cbnnews.com:
“MANILA – The Nacionalista Party (NP) will reserve a slot in its senatorial ticket for Wowowee host Willie Revillame if he decides to run for the Senate. In a press conference on Friday, Senator Manuel Villar, president of the NP, said that if Revillame is willing to run for the Senate, he will reserve a slot for him. “Oo, naman, very qualified naman si Willie, wala naman akong nakikitang problema kay Willie,” Villar said. “Yun ay isang bagay na dapat niyang pagisipan.” Villar visited Revillame in Tagaytay after he found out about the controversy involving Revillame’s move to cut the live streaming of the late President Corazon Aquino’s August 3 procession which was being shown simultaneously on Wowowee through an inset video. Revillame’s move irked many viewers and prompted him to go on indefinite leave from his popular entertainment show. Nearly 50,000 have expressed support for an online petition seeking Revillame’s ouster from Wowowee. Villar said that although he didn’t get to watch that controversial Wowowee episode, he nonetheless wants to express his support for the popular host. He said Revillame can play a big role in strengthening the NP, the country’s oldest political party which Villar is rebuilding following years of poor party politics under its former leaders. ABS-CBN News tried to reach Revillame for comment, but he declined to answer his phone, as of posting.”
my gulay, what will happen to this country if someone like Willie Revillame will sit as a Senator? i mean, he has this rudeness on tv, he has a bad mouth, a cry-baby, and he’s already someone not even worthy to have a tv show and Manny Villar is thinking of taking him in to be a Senator!? what’s he up to?! popularity?!
and here’s more, an online petition calling for Revillame’s ouster has gathered nearly 50,000 signatures already; the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board has filed a complaint and called for the preventive suspension of Revillame; Facebook users have launched the Anti Willie Revillame Movement Facebook Group; and different organizations like the Alyansa ng Filipinong Mamamahayag have issued statements against Revillame, and somehow all this convinced Villar that Revillame should run for senator?
