Perhaps we all should have been given earlier notice about contributors and their “selfless” donations to the campaign kitty.
But, really, are you still surprised that the number one contributor to P-Ngoy is a Cojuangco? Mr. Tonyboy Cojuangco (also known as Gretchen Barretto’s PAPA) donated a cool P100 million in support of his nephew’s tomfoolery.
Oh, and did you know that P-Ngoy claimed to have received a total of P440,050,000 in contributions but only spent P403,119,981.81 during the campaign. The rest was used to get his Botox injections and teeth whitening sessions.
Back to Tonyboy, this indeed shows that blood is thicker than water – and that Kamag-Anak, Inc. is a great investment! Expect it to make an IPO soon.

Aquino investment: Meanwhile, the Kritch contributed P15 million, and other P-Ngoy sisters Pinky and Balsy gave P5M and P3M respectively. That really explains why James Yap is going after neighborhood girls. Out-of-town trysts can get real expensive, and Kritch holds all the money.

Do you have an appointment? P-Ngoy was quoted as saying “Thank you, at least it lessened my headaches” when he learned PAGCOR chairman and FG tropa Efraim Genuino resigned from his post even after getting a fresh appointment from PGMA.
Noynoy is now studying whether to appoint Ogie Alcasid to the post.
But, seriously, who’s going to solve OUR headache that is Noynoy?

What a Dick: I don’t know what to make of Sen. Dick Gordon’s recent display of support (affection?) for the President-HELLect.
“I am leaving it to the incoming president. I am very sure he will make a good decision for our country and hopefully they would be able to fix the problem of our country,” he said in an interview. “We will not always be fighting. I am willing to give my help if they would need it.”
We know, of course, that Dick had been very vocal about his distaste for P-Ngoy. Does he want a cushy post? Perhaps another stint at the DOT? Won’t be surprised if he does get it. C’mon Dick. Show some balls, too!

Eto nAPO siya: Speaking of DOT, some people are floating the name of APO Hiking’s Jim Paredes as Tourism Sec. That can save them a bundle on a theme song.

This little piggy: William (Bil-Billy) Esposo is so in-love with TJ Manotoc’s coined term “V-Nay” that he kept mentioning it ad nauseam in his column. Get a room, for crying out loud.
Anyway, he said that, among other things, P-Ngoy is wary of giving V-Nay the powerful DILG portfolio because he needs to consider that V-Nay is not an LP ally, and that “There is the pressure of how his defeated running mate Mar Roxas will feel about the V-Nay appointment. Being the good friend that he is, P-Noy has been bending over backward for Mar since Mar’s defeat became evident.”
Excuse me? Good friend? When did he actually display his being a good friend to Mar? When he eased him out of his Presidential ambition? When he made LAGLAG in favor of V-Nay? Friends like P-Ngoy are the type that would give you a gun if you were suicidal.
