A Mexican Joke

In Spanish the party of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is the PRD (Party of Revolutionary Democracy or the Pay Err Day) but in the last couple of days there is a joke going around Mexico which is very funny -

Como sé llama la partidad de AMLO?

Perdedor. (Which sounds a lot like the phoenetic pronounciation of the party in Spanish but means loser). (Could also be perderre)

AMLOs tactics are increasingly looking like just that. A recent poll shows that even his supporters are declining in their support. That does not mean that Calderon will not need to exercise significant leadership - but it does mean that AMLO, if he keeps up these disruptions will find himself even less relevant.
