I saw on the news that there were speculations that the youngest daughter of the late President Cory Aquino will be running for office. Oh shit.
I certainly hope not. Here are my reasons:
1. She does not have the good moral character that a public servant should have. (then again, which Filipino politician has? but that’s another story)
2. If politicians are good for one thing, it is that they are amazing pretenders – plastic. They can act as civil and mature as possible in when needed. Kris Aquino’s innate immorality is not fitting for public office, she cannot be a diplomat. It is embarrassing if other world leaders will see what kind of leader Kris Aquino will be.
She is already an embarrassment carrying the “Aquino” name. But staying in the dirty world of show business is somehow fitting for someone like her. She does not need to go into a field where she will have more direct impact to more people’s lives.
