Miriam Defensor Santiago has been a staple of Philippine politics for decades, and she’s done a superb job bringing herself into pop culture with books like Stupid is Forever.
But in next month’s presidential elections she hasn’t done too well in the initial surveys. In the latest March poll from Pulse Asia, Miriam only got 3% support from the 1,800 voters surveyed. Things aren’t looking good for the presidential hopeful, but Miriam has discovered life after the presidential race.
And that… is sending Secret SMS to her rival candidates!
At the start of the presidential race when it was only Mar Roxas, Miriam, Grace Poe and Jejomar Binay in the running, fears around Poe’s disqualification and Binay’s corruption scandal led her to believe that it would be a two man race between her and Mar. Today, with both her and Mar trailing in the polls, she only has one thing to say.
