Curtain raiser (with apologies to Ricky Lo of the Star): Did you know what else Mr. PNoy did when he went for a weeklong breather after the elections? Well, if you will notice a couple of things different about his appearance, that should tell you.
First, he had Botox done to his oh-so-handsome face. Wow, sosyal!
Second, he had his nicotine-stained teeth whitened. Tip, Mr. President-elect: it would be cheaper to stop smoking like you promised.

Big Mike vs. Big Forehead: I never thought I’d see the day, but FG Arroyo actually made lots of sense as he chided PNoy about all the bitching and criticism he’s dishing out. Big Mike said that PNoy must think he’s still president of the opposition. He should stop dividing the nation and think about unity.

You may call me First Lady: Aside from looking smug, Kris seems to be consciously trying to be, well, CALMER. That certainly seems the case on her SNN program with Tourism Secretary Boy Abunda. You know she’s having a hard time censoring herself, so you just have to laugh and wonder when the real, MEAN, TACTLESS Kris will let go again.
But the meanness is still within. You can see it in her eyes. Maybe the evil can be surgically removed.

Not so fast, Apu! VP-elect Binay has apparently been thwarted by Homer Simpson-Aquino. Though very publicly saying he wants the DILG portfolio, Binay is by no means a lock. Noynoy is considering other candidates such as Cavite’s Jesse Robredo. In fairness, Binay seems to have forgotten that he ran under a DIFFERENT CANDIDATE and PARTY.
