I have occasionally promoted the virtues of Uruguay as one of those happy-in-obscurity places one might want to relocate to in the event of anything dire happening in the U.S. – a Dennis Kucinich presidency, perhaps.
This new Uruguay president seems determined to burst my bubble. Here he is smooching with Hugo Chávez. No doubt Chávez is saying: “Ur a guy I can really get along with!”
Frankly, these are a pair o’ guys (Paraguay, geddit?) I could do without.
