Argentina reelected Cristina Kirchner as their president. The results were announced a couple of hours ago and Cristina just completed her victory speech, which was, dramatic, to be polite.
Here are the television spots that have been running continuously, positioning Cristina as a woman of the people. She was smart, because the opposition went negative. The public preferred the message of hope. Oh Obama, what have you done to politics?
The apocalypse is upon us. Take shelter. Just remember to tell your family.
Attention tourists in Argentina. Today is election day and you can’t buy alcohol!
Insane! The night before the election and during Election Day no alcohol can be sold. In addition parties and public events are banned. The only places that are open are restaurants (no alcohol there either) and some of the cinema chains have a shorter schedule while others will open following their regular working hours. Most shops will probably remain closed.
Apparently this law exits in other Latin American countries and it’s not all that surprising when you consider how fanatical Argentines get over politics. No one wants to add alcohol to the mix.
But let’s think about me first. How am I going to get through the day? HOOOOOWW!?
