Last night’s RockED Radio program was both interesting and satisfying as Gang Badoy et al went face to face with outgoing Presidential Management Staff Chief and one of my “favorite” government official, Maria Elena Bautista (now with a Horn). Let me share my very own recap of the interview and firstly the interesting side.
Ms. Len Bautista should be awarded the Congressional Medal of U**y for her relentless effort in protecting her outgoing boss PGMA. Like if this were the Japanese Era, she’d be a collaborator. She made it seem an easy task being a Defendor simply by answering valid questions with phrases like “I don’t know” or an emo-esque “I’m sorry” or a deafening silence every now and then, or a hilarious “I’d like to have a break now.” Either she’s totally evasive of the issues or her answers were stupidly way way off the point. In fairness, her cute little voice went well (once again) with her naivety and apathy. That’s one public official, in the Arroyo circle, for you. Anyway, a few more days and we’ll be bidding her good riddance and congratulations for she must have inherited a good fortune from President..I mean, from her parents. And oh, take note of her advice for those who are eyeing for a public post: “Given the chance to serve the government, take ADVANTAGE of it.”
What’s satisfying was how Gang and the rest of the panel grilled the PMS chief with pure intellect (and a touch of sarcasm). I’d like to coin RockEd Radio’s weekly program as NU’s Grill. But last night was a no Freedom of Information night. And as for Gang Badoy, you, or at least the likes of you, deserved a congressional seat whydontcha.
