Gloria's Karma

Three times she phoned President-elect Barack Obama to ask for a meeting. Ay, inglorious Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, de facto president of the much-imposed upon alleged Republic of the Philippines, she who countenanced the killing of a thousand community organizers, including 93 women, must now beg for an audience with the community-organizer-in-chief.

Sweet karma.

I hope Obama doesn't give her the light of day....unless to excoriate her.

Oh dear, what can I do? I'm only a "hamak na manunulat" (a humble writer). This plea should go the movement which has been struggling to prevent such things for the last 40 years.

You what Gloria's problem is? She's got small man's syndrome!

But seriously.....maybe we can think of a way to get Obama to take notice of GabNet....I am curious about how he'll respond to the chaos in South East Asia when he too grew up in Indonesia a place corrupted by American Imperialism.
