NOT A SINGLE CHARGE AGAINST JDV, HIS OUSTER WAS PURE POLITICAL VENDETTA.

SO THE LATEST ADDITION TO GLORIA'S DOGS, PROSPERO NOGRALES, SHOWED THE WHOLE COUNTRY HOW TO LEAD A MOB OF CORRUPT POLITICIANS OUT TO BRING DOWN ONE OF THEIR OWN. MR. GLOEZ IS RIGHT, THOSE WHO ARE LOYAL AND CLOSE TO DE VENECIA WILL NOT SIT BACK AND DO NOTHING ABOUT THEIR COLLEAGUE'S HUMILIATING OUSTER.
IN THE COMING DAYS, WE CAN EXPECT A CALM BEFORE THE STORM AS THE OPPOSITION AND DE VENECIA'S SUPPORTERS START PLOTTING AGAINST NOGRALES AND GLORIA ARROYO.
What is surprising (though not really) is that the motive for ousting him -- political vendetta -- is so ill-disguised. One would think that loftier reasons would be offered for De Venecias ouster, but public statements from the Arroyo sons in the House said their family was hurt by accusations made by De Venecias son, Joey de Venecia III.
Deputy Minority Floor Leader Roilo Golez opined at a recent media forum that the Speaker is a political giant and his ouster would naturally be tectonic and cause massive realignments in the House. Golez is correct, and the administration has no way of predicting what the final configuration in the House would be.
The opposition led by former president Joseph Estrada is extending its welcome to De Venecia if hes ousted, but I think that the decent fellow that he is, he would not turn into a loudmouthed, rambunctious obstructionist but become an effective fiscalizer of the administration.
