DOJ Secretary Raul Gonzalez

Far from being a lovable grumpy old man, Justice Secretary Raul Gonzalez has ceased to be funny. Not that his crass comments ever were. In this photo, could this guy whispering to his ear be the source of Sec. Gonzalez’s constant stream of nasty and pompous remarks? Does he feed those insensitive comments or will Gonzalez claim that they are solely his own?

The devil is known to take on many forms. Looking at the two, who can tell?

I hope this other old man (with all due respect), Amando Doronila is proven right when he says in his article today, Gonzalez’s gaffe may cost him his job, that the DOJ Secretary’s time to go is near. Mag dilang anghel sana siya.

More columns on this old man: “Both feet in mouth” from Howie Severino’s Sidetrip, “Mad Justice” from Rebel without a Clue and yesterday’s Inquirer editorial, “Bane“. Amando Doronila still has more to say on the matter in his “Caught in a trap of his own making“. I sincerely hope it’s just a matter of time before we are rid of this guy.
