    What a shame. I thought that the clot (Timerman) had killed her. So now she'll be turning over in her “mind” how to evade the judicial judgement that she must treat all media in the same way? Which “con” to try on the US courts next? No doubt the UK will be to blame. Perhaps it might be an idea for the UK to declare war in defence of British territories. Massive reinforcement of the Falkland Islands. 24-hour bombardment of Buenos Aires. Might as well be blamed for something we have done!

    It makes one wonder how ill she really is.

    Perhaps this is their way of putting her out to pasture and the world will never hear from her again as she spends her balance of time convalescing.

    I can see her now, dressed in black lingerie, lying on her bed ( did anyone notice the pun ) making decisions. Coffee or tea , one lump or two.

    Surely you jest?

    Her emergence from ailing obscurity will have been stage managed to Broadway proportions.

    She will be wheeled out onto a balcony at the Casa Rosada wearing large sunglasses and a Norma Desmond turban to an invited crowd of adoring (and paid) admirers, while she struggles to raise an arm and wave. All to the chants of Evita.

    @6 You disappoint me. I thought she'd be reprising her “legs spread for Obama” role. In public.

    Is Gollum, Max von Mayerling or Joe Gillis?

    The more she can be involved in decisions without affecting her health the better =) Btw this governor sounds good, unlike most of them featured here, what do comrades like Axel and Think think of him as I know he's been mentioned as a possible Presidential candidate. Certainly better than Massa Macri and Sciloi but I'd still prefer Cristina again or Timmerman...
