Ah yes, the "return from the dark side" - a staple of narratives throughout the years. You have your evil empire and its (by definition) evil leader, then the evil (in a more immediate sense since evil leader seems a bit distant at times) peon who at one point, usually near death, realizes making amends for the rest of his/her life... which usually lasts about five minutes in the movies (not counting the gurgle-gurgle-death-rattle-I'm-sorry-I-love-you-all expiration scene).
A part of you has got to cheer for the reformed peon... but another part of you wants to strangle him/her because of how much easier everything would have been had that change of heart come a mite sooner... and one final part, one little rebellious Sweeney Todd little part, still wants the peon to pay.
I won't know if any of the things JDV will end up saying about the administration are true tales from the sordid underbelly of power, or spiteful retaliatory fabrications. One thing I do know though, is that I have three questions for JDV:
1) How long have you had "first hand and second hand” knowledge of corruption in Malacañang, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the Cabinet?
2) Why are you only acting on this now and not when you were in a position to really do something about it? (For an example of what a House Speaker can do to a President he's not all that into anymore, please see Exhibit A: Manny Villar)
3) How do you expect us to view both you and your words now, when in effect you are telling us that you've known these things all along and yet chose to keep silent?
The real tragedy is, IF there is truly corruption in the administration and IF JDV really has intimate knowledge of this, he could really have been a true hero - a surprise revelation from someone presently (as opposed to 'formerly') in the President's confidence would have been worth a hundred "Hello Garci" recordings.
As it stands... the revelations will most likely appear to be just another smear of black in the war between the "alleged" pot and the "supposed" kettle.
