Kapitolyo by Revey
And in Negros Oriental, the provincial capitol is actually architecturally designed like, guess what, the Capitol in Washington, DC.
And so it is only natural that as Election 2010 approaches, local politicians are quick to catch on to the incredible socio-technological tool that has played a significant role in Barack Obama's campaign and election: the internet and weblogging.
Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago is a weblogger of sorts, as she has a website with transcripts of her famous and sometimes infamous but always walloping speeches. Though she says she is not running for office in 2010, her weblog is interesting to read if only because Miriam is Miriam, a very intelligent lawmaker, a Karakter, sometimes a caricature, in the Senate AND it gives us a glimpse of a not-one-to-mince-words senator's take on the recent series of mind-blowing shenanigans by our very own government officials. (Hat tip to Meloinks for the link.)
Senator Mar Roxas seems to be a nice guy who is running for president in 2010 and has tapped the internet as an arsenal in his bid. His website is themed blue, just like Obama's, but at risk of offending the web designer, I have to say that it is a super eyesore. Even if I already wanted to vote for Roxas, after visiting his website I would most probably change my mind.
I like the fonts and colors in Loren Legarda's clean and green website. Looks like she has a young webdesigner. What I don't like are the photos. Rather boring and undynamic.
As for the other candidates, looks like they haven't found a dedicated weblogger to blog for them yet. Or maybe I haven't looked hard enough. And for the others (de Castro, Erap, Villanueva), I didn't bother to look at all.
