The (Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de) Kirchner administration took another kick in the teeth today, and it’s good news.
Her grand plan to assume control of the government was stymied when the Argentine Supreme Court ruled that the proposed reform drafted by “the bitch” is unconstitutional and have suspended the election.
The result was six votes in favor of handing her a loss and one vote supporting the latest attempts by Kirchner and her playboy son.
The Buenos Aires Herald, Argentina‘s largest English speaking newspaper went on to report, “Justices Ricardo Lorenzetti, Juan Carlos Maqueda, Elena Highton de Nolasco and Carlos Fayt voted against it. Carmen Argibay and Enrique Petracchi also ruled against it, although they stated their votes were “concurrent.” Justice Eugenio Zaffaroni voted in favour of the reform, but he said he was against the reform in general.
With the dictator of Asheville Homeless Network being deposed and now this with Kirchner, it’s been a good month.
