Tell… and show

Of Enrique Peña Nieto’s reluctance to debate his opponents, Gancho writes:

El Universal says Enrique Peña Nieto is bailing on the debates. That’s a weak, anti-democratic move, but if I was advising a airhead with a 20-point lead and was not concerned about the intellectual quality of the campaign per se, I’m not sure my advice would be different.

Aguachile goes futher, calling EPN not just an airhead, but a coward.  Given who he’ll have to face in the two official debates, where the hapless Josefa Vásquez Mota is going to be irrelevant,  Karl Monter goes Aguachile one better.  He thinks EPN is .. well… chicken!

    First, with a name like that, he is an obvious target, PINATA. And peNa translates as “target”.
    And nieto, grandson. Plus he sounds like an immature spoiled kid.
    Why would the PRI want such an obvious “nebbish”.? This schmo could end up in the pines, or a pine box.

    Why debate? He’s so far ahead – and he has no need to visit a university (such as Ibero) where students might bring up uncomfortable topics such as the Paulette fiasco or femenicidios. Just look at how a student went wild, pilorizing Vazquuez Mota – and at Tec de Monterrey of all places.
