Oh, what a country! A country where you can say whatever you want, unless you want to say something bad about the "president".
I still can't seriously call that slimy thing a president, and it is not because I'm a monarchist. Sampaio was a president; he had the dignity and competence required to stand as a head of state.
This thing, on the other hand, just baffles me. Then again, this is the country that needed a revolution to abolish the regime of its greatest native, so it is sadly not surprising that the people insist on electing Mr Slimy to be prime minister, and then president.
