'Clueless' Manny Pacquiao should throw in electoral towel

When he is inside a boxing ring, the last adjective anyone would ever use to describe Manny Pacquiao is “clueless.” Under the tutelage of Coach Freddie Roach, Pacquiao has steadily improved and become the most ferocious and one of the slickest fighters of his generation. But, when it comes to political games people play in his homeland, some observers think that the Pinoy Idol is heading towards another fight he cannot possibly win, a second electoral thrashing as the “National Fist” seeks a congressional seat from wife Jinkee’s home province of Sarangani. I stumbled upon this fascinating story on, a substantive piece authored by the highly educated Granville Ampong. In the column, Ampong quotes a prominent professor and Monsignor from Cebu named Roger Fuentes and Congresswoman Jocelyn Limkaichong and they both opine that Manny should throw in the towel rather than lose his second election in as many tries. It’s no secret that, when Dazzling Darlene Antonio-Custodio, whipped him by nearly 40,000 votes in his hometown of General Santos City, that Pacquiao put plenty of “bank: into his political operation with sad results. The professor-priest and the female politician said that Roy Chiongbian, another scion of a political dynasty as is Dazzling Darlene, may beat Pacman in a one-sided manner that even Floyd Mayweather could.
