In a way – in many ways, at that – I made Nicanor Perlas.
A group of foreigners and expats have a Ning group where the Nick “Badass” Perlas campaign has apparently gone full force: in many ways, “Badass” is now a new marketing campaign for a Presidentiable no one knows, much less cares about. I like to believe that I caught on the badassery by osmosis: I am not campaigning for Perlas, but in a way – in many ways, at that – I am. I am satirizing and openly mocking his campaign, but in a way – in many ways, at that, I’m not. See what I mean?
With that said, I am not the online campaign manager for Perlas 2010, but Nick Perlas is such a badass that I actually became his spokesman without me knowing it. That’s how badass he is. Forget illusionists that vanish into thin air, or fashion models that take off their underpants while they’re still wearing trousers: anyone who can actually speak for me is a freakin’ badass.
