How to win an election without even trying

28 February 2018

Never interfere with an enemy while he’s in the process of destroying himself.

With the PRI demanding legal action be taken against Ricardo Anaya over alleged money-laundering schemes, and PRD and PAN talking up José Antonio Meade’s failure to do anything about corruption in the various government departments he headed, I noticed a few pundits speculating on why AMLO was not saying much about these scandals… usually in the vein that by not openly condemning them, he is somehow condoning corrupt practices, or secretly supporting one side or the other, in return for future support (and his not-really-defined call for amnesty).

Seems to me, the front-runner has a simpler reason for letting the mainstream parties fight over each other’s candidates.
