The venerable Washington Post reports hours ago this latest shocking dining tidbit about a GMA & Entourage Dinner at Bobby Van’s, a steakhouse in Washington DC. Probably enjoyed on July 30, after her meeting with President Obama, the short item reports 50+ people running up a tab of nearly $15,000 and an “unidentified woman paying with cash.” OUT-FRIGGING-RAGEOUS!!!
Manolo Quezon has a great summary in his latest post entitled “Le Circus Freak”, here, so I don’t need to type for the next two hours. Suffice it to say, someone out there, or up there, has it out for GMA & Party. What a national and international embarrassment. What a joke. What an insult to every Filipino citizen’s intelligence. What blatant and utter disregard for honesty, integrity, service, humility, and delicadeza. If you are out there in Washington and New York, start the buzz and please find out who was in those restaurants and witnessed those dinners. Apparently some people in New York even had photos taken with the President at Le Cirque. If you work in the restaurant industry and have contacts, try and get a hold of the bills, what was ordered and how much indeed was spent. For a country and people so well known for the “bamboo telegraph” and everyone linked to everyone, certainly we should be able to piece together more and more factual information in the days ahead. And where else did they dine, as MLQIII hints at yet another anniversary lunch in New York just after they attended Mass at St. Patrick’s?! No wonder all of the congressmen interviewed sounded so bloody CONFUSED, maybe they couldn’t even figure out what meal was being referred to by the reporters since they had so MANY fancy meals in Washington and New York, and the dates were so mixed up!!! Arrghh!
And here, a SECOND (though with factual errors) mention in the NY Post Aug 11, 2009… And it keeps going and going and going…
