Jojo Binay wants to do an ObamaI think anyone who reacts to this news story with anything but hysterical laughter needs reattachment to the planet, stat. I'm a bit surprised Nurse Ratched hasn't scheduled Binay yet for an emergency involuntary neurosurgical procedure.

MANILA, Philippines—Jejomar “Jojo” Binay is embarking on an audacious journey from the “Republic of Makati” to the Republic of the Philippines as the country’s very own “Jojo Bama”—much like US President-elect Barack Obama.
Vowing to turn the nation around as he did in Makati City as its longtime mayor, Binay Tuesday declared his intention to run for the presidency, calling for a “voter’s revolution” in 2010 through change in leadership.
More than 2,000 supporters, some trucked in from the provinces, carried streamers that read “Obama of the Philippines” and “Jojo Binay for President” as they gathered at the Makati City Hall for a 7 a.m. thanksgiving Mass on Binay’s 66th birthday.
And Jesus, Mary, and Joseph—or in Binay's case, Jesus, Joseph, and Mary—his sycophants really take the cake! Imagine comparing Binay to the US President-elect. Hindi ba sila kinikilabutan? Wake up and smell the coffee, people. About the only things he and Obama have in common are their complexions!
For once in my life, I'm with Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago. Excuse me, too, for finding it a source of humor.
