2. They've certainly had their work cut out for them

What with the pandemic besides! (can you imagine an utterly bankrupt country having to deal with all that at once)

Of course, inflation has proven much harder to tackle - in fact, outright impossible (52%!).

And that has hurt Fernández's mostly working-class base hardest - which may explain why so many stayed home in the first round.

Should the right-wing gorilas (as they're called down there) win in the second round 3 weeks from now, they'll put Mary "Opus Dei" Vidal in as House Speaker.

The idea would be to then provoke a financial collapse, with the help of right-wing bankers and the agro-export sector, and then demand that Vidal be installed as president.

Not that different from what many in the GOP want to do to Biden now, really.

Thanks as always for taking the time to read, reflect, and react to these stories Judi. Have a breezy and restful weekend.
