Another South American election, another win by a 'leftist' -- and of course by 'leftist' what they mean is 'not approved by traditional US foreign policy'.

Despite the calls from Big Media that another socialist has won in the south, Uruguay wasn't exactly a capitalist paradise, nor is Vazquez a wannabe Commie. The country has long had social policies which would be called 'socialist' up here, while among his campaign promises, Vazquez indicated he would curb spending to help alleviate the current recession.

Don't you hate it when the facts don't fit the script?
