Senator Miriam Santiago is one of those people who can be insulting and comforting at the same time. She’s practically a unicorn–rare and hard-to-find; a mystical creature who knows her sh*t and would face anyone who dares to challenge her.
Her new book, aptly titled “Stupid is Forever,” is a compilation of quotes and epigrams from her speeches, interviews, and writing through the years. It gives life and love advice, pick-up lines, and of course–expression of her disdain for politicians who never learn, or, in her own words, them “who wouldn’t recognize sarcasm if it jumped up and bit them in the supercilious nose.”
It’s great this this book (cover designed by the amazing CJ De Silva-Ong and has artworks by artists like Manix Abrera, Rob Cham, and Elbert Or), came out just in time for the holidays, as most of us would may need some good slap in the face to bring us back to reality. For this list, we’re focusing on love advice, because like Stupid, it is…well… Forever (unfortunately).
