its ups and down, of course. Sometimes they believe
themselves to be the most important in Latin America
and sometimes merely the most important in the world.”
This despite what they might believe in Argentina, of course. Today we have this report quoting one of the leading “Mothers of Plaza de Mayo” (the mothers of the disappeared association) Hebe de Bonafini as she calls on people to vote pro-Kirchner:
“This Sunday we cannot make a mistake. Our future and the future of our children depends on what happens over the next few days in the country, but also the direction that Latin America will take depends on it.”
This is the typical Argentine bullshit, of course. It’s very tough to make them believe that they don’t matter in the great scheme of things, so rather than report all the claptrap these last weeks (the above is pretty typical, by the way) I’ve just ignored it. Let ’em vote, get it done, goodbye.
