Have been scouring the web for a video clip of the latest display of “presidential composure” by gma, but have found no such clip. Ewan ko pero parang medyo natawa kasi ako nung nakita ko ‘yung video from ANC. Lalo na ‘yung curtain lecture niya sa staff niya, na nakuhaan ng ANC ng audio, after niya mag walkout.
(Sa posisyon kaya ni GMA bilang presidente may balak siyang mag walkout? Hehehe)
GMA can’t really act her way out of a paper bag can she?! Her televised addresses (primary of which is the “I am sorry” speech) reeks of artificiality. Sobrang wala siya talagang karisma at konek. Of course we know that it is all scripted, but her pale-faced expression, contrived compassionate face, and monotone vocal delivery betrays the choreography and fakery of it all. Finding a sincere trace of genuine emotion in her voice and expressions is a needle-in-a-haystack task.
Balitang Olympics lang:
Grabe din kasi pressure sa tao na ito. And to think na sa isang event lang siya magco-compete.
Sabi nga ni James Fallows:
Liu has probably been under more individual pressure than any other person involved in these Games. It would be as if Michael Phelps were the only American ever to have won a gold medal in swimming — Liu’s position among Chinese male track and field athletes — and would be racing only once, in the 50-yard freestyle.
Dun sa mga Phelps fanatic, o basta intereseted lang kay Phelps, maiging basahin niyo itong sinulat ng malupet kong college tropang si Martin.
May nabasa pala akong makulet na description dun sa feat ni Phelps–Great Haul of China. Hehe, la lang.
Relax lang muna.
