Reprieve

Well, it looks like La Presidente has gotten herself a reprieve. I am obviously not a fan, but I must admit the execution of the State of the Nation Address was masterfully done. The pressures will probably ease off for a while.

However, let's not be lulled into thinking that all's-well-that-ends-well. I still have several reasons to mistrust this administration and its supporters (and on the flip side, the opposition as well.)

The new battlecry seems to be "federalism." Though it sounds good at the outset, we have to be careful how this is actually going to play out: from definition up to execution. Tuso ang politikong Pinoy, and someone will find some way to screw it.

We'll be watching.
