Okay, so despite being in the middle of a major pickle (and that's putting it mildly), Senator Bong Revilla Jr. has announced that he's still keen on running for president in the 2016 elections. #BongPanes!
Revilla, who is expected to receive a warrant of arrest any day now due to his supposed involvement in the PDAF scam, claims that all the allegations thrown at him are mere strategies to turn the public against him en route to the presidential elections. "Wala po silang mapapatunayan at wala pong laman iyang kaso na 'yan," he told UNTV News. "Sinasabi ng administrasyon na galit daw sa akin ang mga tao. Pero kitang-kita ninyo naman ang pagmamahal nila sa akin. Yun ang patunay lamang na nagsisinungaling sila."
He adds that he will even campaign from prison if need be, the way Senator Antonio Trillanes did in the 2007 senatorial elections. Worse, Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma says that Revilla has every right to express his intentions, barring c0nviction. Nyak!

...Except some Pinoys are starting to contemplate why they voted for this guy in the first place:
