Manipulating the Fickle Masses

Lots of anti-Erap rallies happening this week. Several groups from rural areas outside Manila are supposed to be converging on the city on Wednesday for a big one. And rich folk are hosting a free “People Power Lunch” for anti-Erap rallyists at the Ayala-Paseo intersection. Ha! Using Erap’s own pang-masa tactics against him. Maybe that, combined with the next day being a holiday, will build up the critical mass of people needed for a genuine people’s revolution. Estrada can’t keep banking on the fickle, fast-dwindling support of the masses forever to keep him in power. The cluelessly corrupt presidency has to end ASAP. If he resigns before he gets impeached, so much the better.
