The Never-Ending Political Saga of Senator Tito Sotto, Plagiarist

By N. Mark Castro

Riding high on his misplaced righteousness that God Himself, in His Infinite Wisdom, depends solely on the magnitude of the Senator’s crusade against the controversial RH Bill.

It is a proposition so powerful all the priests and bishops and pastors of the Christian persuasion are screaming of infinite doom. It is a proposition so abominable it has divided a nation, rocked its politics, subverted the truth and, more importantly, catapulted one Senator Tito Sotto in the global spectrum of folly. Whereas in his former TV show, he boasted of being seen “Mula Aparri Hanggang Jolo” which, according to Philippine geography, is the length and breadth of the country. Whereas in the once august halls of the Philippine Senate, he can boast of being seen, heard, and read all over the world as plagiarist that refuses to bow; and, worse, a recidivist that sees nothing but his innocence.

How can he ask for forgiveness when, in his privileged mind, he is right. He has always been right.

And in his pursuit for local recognition, he received global recognition instead.


It may seem politically inconceivable that Senator Tito Sotto, together with his Senate Staff headed by Atty. Hector Villacorta and his minions of apologists, would continue to defy common decency, to acknowledge one’s failures, one’s flaws, to take the cudgels of responsibility, and be the better for it.

A stretch, it seems, and so he imposes himself yet again upon the taxpayer’s, upon the once august hauls of the Philippine Senate, to deliver his message of righteousness, to exonerate himself, to seek pity upon those who have benefited from his largesse and excess, and to seek solace from elders who ought to know better, that in the face of such blatant disregard for common decency and, further, humility, find comfort from apologists who insist to be writers. I wonder how this blog would circumvent this —

To receive such unwanted global attention due to one’s hubris is simply a natural social behavior, however, to insist upon one’s righteousness in the face of the truth, now that is simply beyond understanding: a trait too familiar to those who have been born under privileged circumstances that, instead of humility, one displays one’s sense of entitlement.

Reports continue to flood regarding Senator Tito Sotto’s sheer arrogance but if there’s one thing he has displayed the moment he has decided upon himself to be the sole defender of God’s Truth, however he may understand it … it is that he has proven to the entire world what a big joke he is.

And That’s not entertainment.
