With the prospect of an impeachment trial that can have her out of office next May, Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff appealed for international support on Friday during a visit to New York, broadcasting her claims that the campaign to oust her from office was little more than a coup d’état.

    Any leader with an ounce of self-esteem and national pride wouldn't look so weak on the international stage.

    Using the term “coup” to describe a drawn-out legislative process is pure hysterical sudaca theatre. Rousseff has set the image of Brazil back about 50 years.

    “...pure hysterical sudaca theatre”

    - sudaca.
    “Pejorative term for South Americans. Not something you would say to someone's face. The Spaniard told the ... ”

    A small step between YB's demonstrated bigotry to full-on racism.

    Whatever attributes made America great, YB/ Fred Bates possesses none of them.

    She only managed to conclude her ineffective speech because she was reading it......even so, she got lost in her thoughts for a moment or two.
    Unfortunately, she was not smart enough to know when to end ....she just had to tell everyone about her personal problems....

    Sudaca: Sort of the same sentiment as when argies refer to chilenos as “chilotes” or Colombians as “Colombiches” or Bolivians as “cholivianos” or similar.

    It [sudaca ] was popular when I lived in Spain, to describe South American music. Now it's usually fairly negative but it depends on the context, just as in Chilito you can call your compa a huevón and it's a term of endearment.

    @6 Marti

    Thanks for the clarification.
    Given Fred's past behaviour, I'm sure it is not a term of endearment.

    He can't seem to post without identifying a group in order to deliver a bigoted derogatory comment.

    BTW, I am not offended by being called a “Canuck”.

    @8 ' BTW, I am not offended by being called a “Canuck”. '

    I lived in BC for a short time and I don't think anybody cared, eh?

    YB was mildly entertaining during the CFK/ Kicilarff reign - his commentary on defaulting and the politics of populism were interesting at times. One always looked forward to some insight on the default.

    However, now that CFK is gone and the Arg, gov. has largely turned away from their old ways, he is just a Troll without a cause.

    After years of “red-baiting”, YB became irrelevant overnight.

    Now he's looking for new foes.

    It's a bit sad, actually.

    Funny that Think and voice seem at a loss for a purpose, also.

    It's like the end of the Cold War - all the subs are rusting at their moorings in Vladivostok.
