She and her big mouth

Gloria Arroyo, the Philippine president with questionable legitimacy, was all heels to greet Gen. Jovito Palparan during her 2006 state of the nation address. Quoting her:
We will build a roll-on-roll-roll-off port system to link Lucena, Quezon to Boac, Marinduque, like the Batangas-Mindoro RORO.

Sa ganitong mga proyekto, palalakasin natin ang ekonomiya ng mga barangay at lalawigan. And we will end the long oppression of barangays by rebel terrorists who kill without qualms, even their own. Sa mga lalawigang sakop ng 7th Division, nakikibaka sa kalaban si Jovito Palparan. Hindi siya aatras hanggang makawala sa gabi ng kilabot ang mga pamayanan at maka-ahon sa bukang-liwayway ng hustisya at kalayaan.
But it seems Palparan is pulling her down. Aside from a number of human rights violations cases Palparan is facing, the general might soon spend his retirement inside the jail. For snubbing the fourth time the hearing in the Court of Appeals for habeas corpus, "he would be cited in contempt and an arrest warrant would be issued against him", says Associate Justice Jose Mendoza.

But what keeps Palparan from appearing before the Court of Appeals? Is he afraid of something? But Gloria was all praise for him when she said that the general never backs off fighting for justice and freedom.

Or could it be that Gloria is again comitting the never-ending mistake of too much words? Poor little girl! She and her big mouth!
