They're afraid of an FPJ Presidency, so...
"Let's vote for someone who has the best chance of beating FPJ!"

Uh... how sure are you that FPJ has a high chance of being elected in the first place?

I asked a taxi driver recently whom he would vote for, and he was still choosing between FPJ and Ping Lacson. His objective -- get GMA out of Malacañang. He will support whoever is stronger between FPJ and Ping. My question: "How can you tell who's stronger?"

That question silenced him rather quickly. All he could say was: "Yan ang magandang tanong." (That's a beautiful good question.)

Folks, please choose whom you really want as President.
