Pacquiao KO'd in bid for Congress (ABS-CBN)
World superfeatherweight champ Manny Pacquiao has found himself on the ropes and struggling on points against a 90-pound female opponent in his bid for a congressional seat. With votes from 77 percent of the election precincts counted incumbent Darlene Custodio is leading with 77,832 votes, while Pacquiao, a supporter of President Arroyo, has 45,422. Custodio, however, is confident that Pacquiao is down for the count, telling national television that "he played on his popularity. He didn't have a platform and no one knew what he stood for."
That's good news. But then again, knowing how he has been brainwashed into doing this, Pac-Man might emerge as a vindictive and bitter man. He may not take a loss very lightly. Bad news.
Ay naku, this was such a bad idea. Those politicians are destroying anything and everything that is good in the Philippines.
