Getting prepped :3
oh you goofy, loveable loon, you :3
All that lives is holy, life delights in life.
It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...
It's all the rabbit SH*T you stumble over on your way down!!!

Wow Miguel, you got your photo taken with Gordon Freeman! :-P
~ * ~
Gordy and I go waaay back --who do you think taught him how to wield the crowbar ;)
Yeah, it's fairly obvious that the "ape" has the superior acting skills! Viva la Intoxication!
I actually was pretty sober at that time --for a change ;)
Hola RPJ -
Donde esta las ultimas photographias de la debate Presendentiale por nosotros?
Man and Impact in the Americas
The only photos about that boring event people are discussing, are like this ;)
I might write about it on my blog later on. I think I'll might title it The Playmate Conspiracy ;)
Well, I don't know the election issues in Mexico
But if this woman was moderating the debate... I might at least read some of the subtitles under the candidates while she was off camera.
Personally, I don't think that a playmate debate moderator would be too bad an idea to boost debate viewership....
And you could judge how candidates react on the fly while distracted. I suppose for Obama/Romney we'd have to find someone in the Halle Berry class...
Is there video of the candidates reactions to her sudden appearance? It must have been tough for them to stop looking...
all I can see in this one is that they now have frowns, perhaps taking their cue from the female moderator...
It would also be likely that no political party would end up being able to accuse a playmate moderator of showing partisanship in her moderation of the debate...
I'm looking forward to your expert commentary and analysis, well illustrated of course...
The guy with the 'stache', Gabriel Quadri, was considered by many to be the victor in the debate, mainly because the rest of the candidates were too busy accusing each other and not minding him at all; but some people think that his all-too natural reaction to the beautiful Julia Orayen --who was not the moderator, merely a hostess in charge of bringing the notes with the order in which each candidate would respond to the questions-- gained him some extra points with the male audience as well ;)
Man Kevin Kline gets around a lot
(and the crossdressers up there are superb)
Our window into Mexico today. Muchas Gracias.
If I ran a US news service, I'd pick you up as a reporter immediately, pronto.
Now for the followup piece - I wonder what the Mexican candidates wives and/or girlfriends look like? Any divorces, "love children"?
The juicy stuff is to be found with the candidate for the PRI and the Green party, Enrique Peña Nieto.
Handsome fellow, right? Most Mexican women agree on that ;)
He almost looks like a TV actor, don't you think? And that's exactly the point.
The man was married to a woman named Monica Pretelini, who fell ill and died right at the beginning of his term as governor for the State of Mexico --under somewhat shadowy circumstances I might add-- making him the most coveted bachelor in the nation.
After some casual affairs, that did produce a couple of kids here and there, he eventually married Angélica Rivera, a famous TV actress that has starred in several telenovelas; in her latest role she was known as 'La Gaviota' (sea gull), and when her relationship with Pela was confirmed the nickname stuck.
As you can see by the picture, they make a very photogenic couple, and that has certainly been an advantage for Peña's political career. Because by the end of the day everybody knows his main supporters are the TV networks which know many Mexican voters are easily seduced by form instead of substance.
And as for the voters who don't care much about his perfect teeth and sparkly eyes, he has comfortably exploited all the problems caused by the violence and the economic turmoil in the last 12 years --the time the PRI has been out of the presidency-- asking people to choose for a change, which in reality would be a step backward instead of forward!
Imagine if the National Socialist Party had won the elections in Germany 12 years after the end of WWII; or the Communist party had won the elections in Russia 12 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall. That's the forecast for Mexico, a country with really short-term memory, in 2012 :(
Damn, RPJ, as women make up 50% of the voters, this sounds like a major issue... it would kind of be like Romney showing up with an extra wife...
Since I know nothing about Mexican politics, who down there might be good, in your opinion, and why?
Who would be good, you ask?
It's a question of who would be the lesser of evils.
And it's a question whose answer I haven't figured out yet.
A vote for Josefina Vazquez Mota means endorsing the stupid war on Drugs that has claimed 60,000 deaths and counting.
A vote for Andres Manuel López Obrador is a vote for populist policies and empowering a man who has shown no respect for civil institutions.
A vote for Peña Nieto means giving carte blanche to the corrupt elite and the corporatist monopolies.
And a vote for Quadri means money in the pocket of the dirtiest union leader in the whole nation.
I think the problem in the end lies not in who would get to win the Presidency. Because nowadays the president can't do a thing without the consent of the Congress and the Senate, and all of them are too busy fighting with each other and they never show the disposition to put their petty differences aside in favor of the greater good.
People need to find a way to exercise their power, and remind the politicians of their condition as public servants. How exactly I haven't the foggiest :-/
