The selection of Senator Vicente Sotto III as the new senate president of the 17th Congress has raised some eyebrows and even ridicule from critics on social media.
However, Dr. Ethel Pineda, a social media blogger identified as a staunch Duterte supporter, refuses to join the bandwagoners bashing Senate President Tito Sotto on social media.
Instead, Pineda says Sotto can even be a better senate president than predecessor Franklin Drilon.
Pineda appeals to the public to give Sotto a chance to prove his worth.
Pineda said Sotto is gifted with political and showbiz savvy that served him well in the last thirty years as a politician that started as a vice mayor of QC from 1988-1992 and then as a senator from 1992-2004. Sotto was re-elected to the senate in 2010.
Meanwhile, Pineda urges Sotto to do good and prove all his critics wrong.
Please check the full post below.
“Tito Sotto is currently serving his fourth term in the Senate, having served two consecutive terms from 1992 to 2004; he was re-elected to the Senate in 2010. Prior to that he served as vice mayor of Quezon City from 1988 to 1992. Unarguably he is gifted with political and showbiz savvy that enabled him to survive the vagaries of politics for thirty years.
The elite has never taken him seriously. It’s the show biz connection, most of all. It does not help that the public think he IS the Tito Escalera who never managed to graduate from Wanbol University. (Sotto studied at Colegio de San Juan de Letran for his elementary, high school, and college education, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in English. ENGLISH!)
Pepsi Paloma. In the sleaze and tease of showbiz cum politics where truth and rumor are Siamese twins, Tito Sotto’s star remains bright. Box office hit pa rin sa Comelec takilya. Either you have it, or you don’t. Take note, Mar Roxas.
Ngitngit na ngitngit na ba ang mga disenteng soshyal who cannot imagine someone from Eat Bulaga can be Senate President? (Hindi pa nga si Manny Paquiao yan, ano ba.)
But wait there’s more!
What can be a better comeuppance than proving to all and sundry that he can be a good senate president, even better than the ones before him. ( Bleh, Drilon.) Bakit hindi? Surprise us, Tito Sen. Do good. For Lady Helen of the Kingdom of Bang-Shang-a-Lang. (Sorry, 60s child ako.)For Barangay Eat Bulaga. For Inang Bayan.
I’d like to see the faces of the disenteng soshyal na parang “na-ano” lang.
Any harsh reaction?
