Beer marketing halted in Micronesia

I suspect there will be scant beer marketing done today in Guam, as the G Man, Glen Hunter, will be dealing with one full blown, mostly ridiculous, sandblasting of Tina Sablan by Pedro DLG Pangelinan, as well as a mild tweaking from Angelo.

Here is a sample from Pangelinan's letter in the Variety:
TO the Precinct One voters, especially, the local Chamolinians and Taotao
Tano group, regardless whether you are a Republican, a Democrat, or Independent.
Beware for there is an educated “mistisa” who is also running for a legislative
seat in Precinct One. This mistisa is rumored to be a liar. From her earliest
activities people have asked her whether what she was doing was the start of her
political movement to be a legislative candidate. In which she was heard to say
“no!” not once, twice but more in which my group said, “she is lying and time
will tell.” Remember she is educated, very active where those people whom she is
hanging around can influence her decision otherwise because of her

Pangelinan goes on to mostly rail against Tina's opposition to Article XII. I'll never understand why locals want their land undervalued, but this guy seems hell bent on keeping his land value meager. Like Doc Murdoch, I'm going to enjoy my cheap apartment with an ocean view and occasionally wonder why so many local people passionately insist on being treated like children who can't make their own decisions about their own property -- like Mr. Pangelinan, but please keep it up, Sir. See if you can get some kind of Article XII for gas and power, too.

I'd like to also offer one other piece of advice on slamming the candidate you want to lose. Generally speaking, being "educated" is a good thing for someone in a leadership position. A coach doesn't say, I don't want that player, he's too "athletic." An ill person doesn't say, "That damn doctor knows too much about medicine, get me that guy over there with the vacant look -- stat." Try something like, Tina Sablan is too skinny to offer a good food spread at the candidate bbq, vote for someone else. Even "Tina Sablan was seen eating tofu" would work better.

Happy typing Glen.

Homeboy's argument lacks refinement, but he's basically making the elistist latte liberal argument used so well against John Kerry.

Jeff said...

That was a bad argument then and now. Look what president it helped get us. Brain power matters. I'm going to ridicule anyone who uses educated as an epithet.

Mike said...

I could be wrong, but I think President Bush's grades were better than Kerry's.

Just sayin'

Makes one wonder who Mr. Pangelinan thinks is qualified, scarey, isn't it?

Jeff said...

Mike, are you saying Bush is really smart and we really are "misunderestimating" him?

Mike said...

I'm not saying he's really smart; I do think he's not as dumb as the libs make him out to be.

Mr. Pangelinan's warning to us all is beware of the Educated local who may be unduly influenced by outsiders, lawyers and other nefarious creatures. Heaven forbid that we would ever have someone educated handle the money.

I wonder how he felt about being told that the Pangelinan family origins are Filipino? So following the logic, would Filipino Panglininan's, his relatives, be entitled to own land? Are they as entitled as he?

I'm Filipino?!?!


Just kidding...some of my best friends are Filipino.

...and I think Bush is smart. He just can't read good. He should could to the Derek Zoolander School for Kids who can't read good and who want to learn to do other things good, too.

...and he's an untreated alcoholic.

...and short.
