The feisty politician really does look like it if you ask President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III, who explained Madrigal's fearsome look could easily scare away corrupt people.
In a campaign sortie, the chief executive even pointed out that Madrigal's look is scarier than that of the boxing legend.
“Si Jamby Madrigal, kapag nakikita natin sa kanyang mga posters sa television, maaliwalas ang mukha dahil hindi kayo tiwali," President Aquino said.
“Pag tiwali kayo’t tiningnan ni Jamby, parang talo pa ho na masama ang tingin sa inyo ni Mr. Tyson, noong kasikatan ni Tyson bilang boksingero," he added.
The chief executive made the remark as he was encouraging their supporters in Maguindanao to vote straight for Team PNoy in the upcoming 2013 senatorial polls.
At the same time, the president praised former Las Pinas Rep.Cynthia Villar for her being straight forward and refusal to be a political turncoat.
“Pag sinabi nyang puti, klarong puti. Pag itim, klarong itim. Hindi pag kausap, sasabihing puti tapos sa susunod pag sinabi ng iba itim, itim," Aquino said.
"Hindi ho balingbing yung tao. Diretsong kausap So pag sinabi po nya, magiging hanep ang buhay kung maraming hanap buhay,"' he noted.
The president expressed belief that Villar would be able to keep her words to provide more jobs for the people in Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao once elected as senator.
Villar is the wife of outgoing Senator Manuel "Manny" Villar, who lost to Aquino during the presidential elections in 2010. Madrigal, meanwhile, was also Aquino's 2010 opponent.
The President also campaigned for the 12 members of the administration's slate despite the absence of eight senators.
Reelectionist Senator Loren Legarda and Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III as well as former Akbayan Rep.Risa Hontiveros and social entrepreneur Paolo "Bam" Aquino IV were the only ones who stayed until the president finished his speech.
Former Senator Ramon “Jun” Magsaysay and Aurora Rep. Juan Edgardo "Sonny" Angara left early right after delivering their speeches way before the president arrived.
