Hopeful news from Brazil

The mask is being stripped the progressive Worker's Party which is mired in a huge bribery scandal.
The conventional wisdom was that, despite his radical Marxist roots and occasional concessions to his political base, Lula represented a healthy move away from the old left and toward the emergence of a new model for underdeveloped nations similar to Europe’s social democracy. Many thought this model would have a moderating effect on the left across the continent and hold Hugo Chávez in check.
Nope, it's good old fashioned lefty politics. Give away the bank and crush business, the goose that lays the golden eggs.
