The last few days must have been really hard for never-had-been-chief-justice Lourdes Sereno. Congratulations have continued to pour in citing not just newly-appointed Chief Justice Teresita De Castro’s eminent qualifications but also her being the Philippines’ first female Chief Justice.
Indeed, this is a huge blow to Sereno. It is very likely that she regrets the day former President Benigno Simeon ‘BS’ Aquino III suggested she step up to the office she now never occupied.
To add to the humiliation is the evidently warm welcome accorded to De Castro by the Supreme Court staff. Suffice to say, it can be easily surmised that Sereno was not at all well-liked by her never-had-been colleagues and staff in the High Court.
Sereno is better off lying low and ignoring any further pats on the back (and on the head) coming from the Yellowtard community. This is a community of inbred thinkers who had utterly failed to evolve. And Sereno is a sad casualty of this Yellowtard disease.
