They paid someone for this?
So National Review Online publishes this: Mike Krause on Mexican Elections on National Review Online. No real need to read this. Just an American pontificating about the state of Mexican politics. As I stated before, if someone is speaking uninformed nonsense, they are usually echoing the conservative position, so this guy is telling us the PRI is a shoe-in for the next presidential election. One statement though, makes one question what he's learned about Mexico "in Quintana Roo, where I live". He says:
There is no way in hell Fox will be running in 2006. Mexican presidents are limited to one six year term. Candidates are usually chosen by el dedazo, and more recently the finger's choice was confirmed by primary.
Krause also snarks about Donald Colosio:
Is it typical of someone working for someone working for something named the Independence Institute to be so profoundly ignorant of our neighbors? Does he not know why Luis Donaldo Colosio's death (and the subsequent presidency of the man who brought reform to Mexico's electoral system) is so important? Does he know who the Dinosauros were? Hell, I'm available, I speak Spanish better than Krause, and I take the time to do at least a little research before I spout off.
