As of the latest unofficail count Manny "The Pacman" Pacquaio who is running for a congressional in Gen Santos City is way, way behind his opponent Darlene Custodio. I think it's time Manny realize that he's been had. No kababayan in their right mind will elect him to congress because his kababayan know what will happen to their champion--he'll die there.
The election returns shows that the Filipinos have waken up to the fact that popularity is not an asset in politics. As of the latest count, actors and comedians are not doing well. This is good. Although there are actors who made it in the local politics arena, that's fine at least they can handle that, at the national level it's another story. People are tired of actors and I think the actors deserve the contempt of the people for the way they have manipulated them.
If actors can present credentials like Herbert Bautista, then that's another story.
