Here is a cartoon from today’s local Sunday paper that illustrates just how much Brazilians love their politicians:

The background is the capitol building in Brasilia, and the caption reads: “There is something rotten, and it is not in the kingdom of Denmark.”
Another one, which takes a cue from the new Vatican ruling expanding the number of mortal sins:

Donkey #1: The new capital sins are: environmental pollution, genetic engineering, excessive accumulation of riches, spread of poverty, use and traffic of drugs, morally questionable experiments and violation of fundamental human rights.”
Donkey #2: Yikes! Brazil is up the creek.
Donkey #3: The politicians are going straight to Hell.
Donkey #4: Sheesh!
