Francis Escudero, Sorcerer Supreme

Forget Chief Justice Reynato Puno’s Moral Force Movement. What we need, this ad for Sen. Francis Escudero tells us, is magic.

It’s actually, pretty cool. If Pres. Manuel Quezon patrolled the streets by hailing random cabs and checking whether the drivers charged him the correct fare*, then why not a president who walks the streets in a hoodie and does magic tricks for street urchins?

And, come on, guys. We’ve tried people power, we’ve tried coups, we’ve tried honest elections. Maybe what we really need to get rid of traditional politics is some sorcery.

By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth, vote for me!
