Riding Tony Saca's coattails
If you read Spanish, some of the best commentary, delivered with wit and insight, is on the Hunnapuh blog. An example is yesterday's post with observations on the current election process. The blog notes since the start of the public electoral campaign for mayorships and the National Assembly, the candidates of ARENA have disappeared from the public airwaves. Instead, Tony Saca is everywhere, and ARENA is clearly trying to elect its people as the candidates of Tony Saca's party. Rather than have the electorate consider the qualifications of the actual candidates, ARENA is counting on the popularity of the president.
