After the success of Stupid is Forever, Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago launched today Stupid is Forevermore, the second installment in her best-selling collection of jokes, quotes, and anecdotes. 140-page Stupid is Forevermore was released in time for her 70th birthday.
She was born June 15, 1945.
“I was pleasantly surprised with the strong public support for Stupid is Forever, so I decided to publish a second book,” Senator Santiago said.
Like the first book, Stupid is Forevermore highlights Santiago’s sharp wit and sometimes dark humor. The longest chapter in the second book, “Overheard at the Senate,” is culled from her privilege speeches and press conference transcripts.
“We should never underestimate the power of humor, especially among Filipinos, and most especially in politics. When the debates turn ugly or the legalese is too hifalutin, humor is a way for us all to see eye to eye,” the lady senator added.
“Humor has its limits; those who overly use it show that they should not be taken seriously as public servants,” she added.
