    @1 You can't be serious. One of the main issues is switching back and forth between one oppressive regime and another. There's only one way for CFK to go out and that's in disgrace. Like most pathetic leaders with a heavy handed authoritarian style, they get ripped to shreds by their former allies.

    He looks like TMBOA sees him as a shoo-in for the job so they can keep coke head Maximo as second in command OF THE CREAM BUNS!

    The Dark Country gets more laughable every day.

    Sorry Optimus_Princeps, if I were you I would cut and run.

    If milani committed delits, it's absolutly fair and expectable that he must be judged and sentenced. Especially in a country like argentina, where responsable authorities (militar and civil) are being judged and sentenced like the criminals who they are.
    However, what is really despisable and pathetic, is to see many of those who pretend to be the champions of human rights, i mean some opponent politicians, who have never done anything for human rights, and some reactionary newspapers, like clarin and la nación which have supported all the coup d'etats in the last XX century, criticising milani's designation. I say it's really despisable to see them having such a hypocrite behaviou, because actually they dont have, and won't never have enough moral authority in order to talk about human rights, because they have never cared about them.

    So she puts off putting him in office until after the elections because:

    a-it saves her supporters from be voted of of office for choosing him
    b-Most of her supporters will be out of office by then and it will not matter
    c-it postpones a coupe for 5 months

    #6 funny....I liked that. She does have a face only a bidet would like
