Honestly, it’s no wonder Chavez-friendly populists keep winning elections in Latin America; the south-of-the-border right seems to be comprised almost entirely of morons. Did they seriously nominate a “banana magnate” who “had promised closer U.S. ties” and happens to have been Ecuador’s richest man? How hard could it have been to paint this dude as an American puppet who would only serve the interests of a narrow elite?
