Bistek, Mike Defensor former pals, fashion victims

In the run up to the Quezon City mayoral election in May, former Arroyo lackey Michael Defensor accused then QC vice mayor Herbert Bautista of pocketing city money through non-existent projects and a rigged feeding program. It was a particularly nasty smear campaign with demands for Bautista to explain himself spraypainted all over Quezon City guerilla street-art style.

The smear campaign eventually led to Bautista being charged with plunder and Defensor losing his second election since turning out to be a bit of a douche.

But things were not always so nasty between Bautista and Defensor. Indolent reader FreeSince09 sent us this picture from back when the two were still pals. Judging from the sad clothes that the two politicians have on, this was probably taken in the late ’80s to early ’90s.

That dude in the middle is probably that other QC mayoral candidate, former QC Representative Anna Rosa Susano.

  1. Well in the world of Philippine politics, there are no permanent friends nor enemies. Only permanent problems.

  2. That’s true. Someone should make a timeline of the unholy alliances that our politicians make with each other in their long careers.

    How are things at the Senate?

  3. Well, I’m not going there anymore. But I heard from “someone” that there’s a Senate employee riding around in a BMW 7-series sedan.

    In case you ask, you read right. EMPLOYEE.

  4. Fucking ah!

    If you can get someone to drag his house keys across the hood of that car and take pictures you will make me a very happy panda.

  5. I blame them all. FILIPINOS ARE NATURALLY, GENETICALLY INFERIOR, DEFECTIVE RACE!!!! Michael Defensor saided it because idiot Filipino peryodistas will publish it without vetting Michael Defensors tsismis and IDIOT FILIPINOS BUY IT! Then it makes its way to IDIOT COLUMNISTAS WHO SPEAKENGESE GOOT IMPECCABLE ENGLISCHTZES and voila! You have a scandal!!!!

    DOOM FILIPINOS! DOOOMED!!!! YOU FILIPINOS ARE ALL IDIOTS!!!! You are propagating idiocy by reading idiotic peryodistas not knowing they are idiotic unvetted reports like ZTE!!!!

    Anyone of you here remember ZTE? Those are coming from foreign-educated-ivy-scho9ol-graduate CEO Venancio III without gathering evidences and published by idiot peryodistas and now, where are we? We are still groping in the darkness with ZTE because FROM VENANCIO TO PERYODISTAS TO FILIPINOS ARE IDIOTS!!!!!!

  6. IDIOCY OF FILIPINOS SINCE 1521……… Hooooray!!!! Charice Pamplenco, Manny Pacquiao …. Journey lead singer …. THAT IS ALL NOTHING IN SICENCE, NOTHING IN MATH, NOTHING IN EDUCATION …… FLIPPERS LOVE ENTERTAINMNT AND THEY THOUGHTED THEY ARE GREAT BECAUSE THEY GOT 3 entertainers!!!!!

    HOW STUPID FILIPINOS CAN GET!!!!!! Yes, they are educated but DEFINITELY, TOTALLY CANNOT LEARN!!!! THAT IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE!!!!!

  7. “that dude in the middle…susano”???
    whoa! That was—emphasis on PAST tense— Lean Alejandro, one of the more dedicated young leftists who rose to (in)famy as a militant labor and youth leader. He was assassinated, gunned down in cold blood by what appeared then to be “military types”.

  8. Hey, Renato Pacifico ? You’re ranting & raving. You could instead post a coherent comment & try to explain your uncalled for conclusion about the “filipino race”.
    I can only assume you’re not Pinoy, in spite of your alias ; else you yourself would belong to this whole shebang you call stupid & idiots. So what are you?
    There are three types of idiots:
    1. Those who truly, clinically, are. One charitable, humane reaction to this type is to ignore them. I do not ignore you.
    2. Those who pretend to be idiots, so that they could not be held accountable for anything they say or do, including posting incoherent rants & raves, and in bad spelling and grammar, too! These, too, should be ignored; there’s very little point in confronting this type anyway. I do not ignore you.
    3. These are the saddest lot: those who are, but don’t know it. These cannot be ignored, because there’s just too many of them around. And this is why i choose to not ignore you.

  9. a.y.armas, There are three types of idiots:

    1. Those who say that logical posts are idiotic;
    2. Those idiotic news from idiot peryodistas are logical
    3. The happiest lot: Those who are and don’t know it.

    On 2. I’ve been ranting and raving and attacking about ZTE, Glorietta bombing, Ces Drilon Kidnapping news blackout, Failon suicide, and many headline hugging news …

    To test ARmas, logic and comprehension, TELL US WHAT IS WRONG OF ALL OF THE ABOVE.

    If you cannot tell what is wrong with all of the above newsreport, then you are clinically brain dead!!!!

    HA!H!HA!HA!HA!HA!

    Oh, here is a big one! EDSA REVOLUTION!!! Who were the real heroes of EDSA REVOLUTION that were never acknowledge!!!!!

    If you cannot answer this big question on EDSA Accidental REVOLUTION, then you are definitely a FILIPINO and a total nut!

  10. Why do Flippers wear leather jacket in hot humid weather? Why do Flippers wear automn and spring clothings in tropical weather? They think its cool? It ain’t cool. It is only showing that Flippers has no originality. They are only goot in plagiarizing American constiutitions and fashion that were never were applicable in Philippines.

    In America the people there wear appropriately. If it is summer, polismen wear shorts. In my dear Flipland, the land of Flipping Flippinos, wear long-leeves and tie. DUDE! No wonder Flippers are so stupid kasi naluluto ang utak nila sa fashion they call STYLE!!!! DUH! SUPER IDIOT! TALAGA ANG MGA FLIPPPERS!!!!!!

  11. Hey, yo! Here, in the FlipLand, Driving a german takes plenty of precious money and connection to Customs. Corrupt LTO and Corrupt ILLEGAL Rubber-Stamp-President-to-the-Oligarchs should stop all german cars to check their papers. Betcha they are owned by corrupt Flippers and not paying custom taxes.

    You know what? Cebu even has BMW Z4 for sale at 1.8 million pesos!!!! Tell ya what! Imported BMW Z4 costs 3,255,000 including 100% tax!!!!

  12. Factory Genetically-defective religious Flips is now 9,900,000. MANILA IS THE DENSEST CITY IN THE WORLD SURPASSING MUMBAI, INDIA!!!!

    What Flippers are doing is pakking every minute of the day despite corrupt FlipGov’s tearing down of sexy billboards, xxx-rated videos and massage parlors!!!!

    FILIPINOS CANNOT UNDERSTAND. FILIPINOS CANNOT LEARN. THEIR DIPLOMAS ARE ONLY DECORATION IN THE LIVING ROOM!!! DIPLOMAS MEANS NOTHING!!!!

  13. @freesince09: you may be right there…about lean (not?)…my bad… but certainly not susano (ang kulit, no?)

    btw, i like your alibata symbol…that’s “K”, right?

  14. @onetamad: maybe pacifico cannot/does not recognize what a proper diploma looks like.
    your diploma is still written in latin? nothing wrong with that of course…sa akin, tagalog na, but my birth certificate is still in spanish, wuja believe?

  15. I did not graduate so I do not know what Diplomas look like. But I do not care so much about Diplomas. Lookit, how many thousands-and-thousands of students graduate from University of the Philippnes since its inception and Philippfines is still a mess despite plenty of graduates from UP.

    Where are these graduates from UP? They go to Hong-Kong to hugas pfwet! If they stay here in the Philippfines, magnakaw!!!!!

  16. @a.y. armas: I was speaking of the, uh, Platonic idea of a diploma. A birth certificate in Spanish? Were you born here?

    @Mr. Pacifico: I definitely agree with you that one can be successful without a diploma, and that it is, in the end, just a scrap of lambskin.

    It’s unfair, though, to say that UP graduates are assholes just because there have been a lot of assholes who went to UP.

    Also, I don’t think many of the domestic helpers and caregivers in Hong Kong went to UP. On an unrelated note, there’s a campaign in Hong Kong urging people to hire domestic helpers from China instead.

  17. @onetamad : ok, the Platonic idea of a diploma…iguess what you mean would be that what’s important is not the diploma itself (the form, the “reality”), but rather the “idea” it represents…in this case, perhaps perseverance, accomplishment, discipline ? i’m not truly conversant with this.
    anyway, a diploma in Latin actually co-exists even today with ones in Tagalog/Pilipino, as you know (trivial knowledge, that).
    And yes, born & raised entirely in Manila. The birth of Filipino “Baby Boomers” up to a certain period still were covered by City Birth Certificates in Spanish text, but with English subtitles…how about that? (again, trivia).
    ‘Nuff said.

  18. @a.y.armas: Wow. I didn’t know about City Birth Certificates. The only ones I’ve seen from back in my dad’s day were already in the familiar format we sue today. Maybe it was a re-issue by the civil registrar?

    Still, that information may be handy some day.
