Now THAT’s an election!

Brazilians went to the polls on a Sunday to choose as their next president either:

  1. a former key member of a Marxist insurgency that resisted the Brazilian military dictatorship
  2. a former mayor who defied the pharmaceutical lobby to provide low cost generic drugs and free AIDS medicine
  3. a renown environmentalist who works to save the Amazon rain forest

In the language of today’s America they would be:

  1. a known terrorist
  2. a socialist
  3. a suspected terrorist
