    Quite embarrassing for Dilma to be begging neighbouring countries to sanction her country as a weapon against the impeachment.

    No one is one her side!

    “Paraguay is still licking its wounds from the 2012 situation when Mercosur imposed the 'democratic clause' following the impeachment which removed then president Fernando Lugo from office, despite following the constitutional procedure.”

    Who can forget the photo of DumbAss, the murdering bastard Mujica and TMBOA on stage forming a trio holding hands and 'dancing' over badgering Paraguay about getting rid of the shagging Bishop (at least they were more or less adult females he got pregnant)?

    Not so happy now are they: Mujica is never in the country (thankfully) due to the various mismanagements, bribes and whatnot haunting him, TMBOA was democratically chucked out on her ear, and DumbAss is going through what the Bishop had to endure.

    At last the Mercosur remembered what it is supposed to be - a trade agreement , not a political forum.
    But it was to be expected that the cow and the LullaRat would ignore the fact that only the Brazilian Senate has the right to decide the cow's fate; the PT's desperation has got them thinking that invoking the “democratic clause” of the Mercosur, by appealing to the UN, to the OAS or to the UNASUR will save their asses.
    But it's good to see the Mercosur is telling her to get lost, and giving her a taste of her own poison - when she illegally engineered Venezuela's entry to the Mercosur, in detriment of Paraguay.
