Isa pang hirit: Noynoy's Inauguration

Is that Kris dancing? Actually no. That's the Wowowee dancers with defunct Willie during heydays. The inauguration of the 15th President of the Republic of the Philippines was like that TV show- Wowowee. Without grace.

According to a columnist at The Manila Times: "What transpired on June 30 was not a presidential inaugural but a veritable pop concert, with musicians and stars belting out numbers on stage and inadvertently demeaning the very occasion itself. The musical numbers of the aging Apo Hiking Society, Christian Bautista, and the perennially-rambunctious Ogie Alcasid were out of place at the Quirino Grandstand and better suited for the 'after party' at Quezon Memorial Circle."

"But perhaps most disappointing was Aquino’s inauguration speech itself, which sounded more like a campaign lecture than a Presidential address," Cunanan added.
