After all, there’s no endorsement like Uncle Sam’s disapproval. Or BushCo’s:
The United States has called on Nicaraguans not to vote for the former leftist leader, Daniel Ortega, in November’s presidential elections.
A state department spokesman said politicians like the Sandinista leader were “discredited figures from the country’s political past”.
Mr Ortega’s Sandinistas led Nicaragua in the 1980s with strong US opposition.
And looky who the US funded to oppose those pesky Sandinistas.
No wonder no one listens to the US anymore.
