Bush (speaking Spanish in a broad Texas accent): “I am pleased that the Senate has approved this free-trade agreement, which only favors us, given that 98% of Peruvian products already enter the U.S. duty-free. And I am pleased that those folks over there are dumb enough to celebrate the deal like it was a triumph on their part.”
Carlin of La República (Lima).
I have no opinion on free trade with Peru — the only Peruvian product I own being one of those pointy, handmade Andean wool hats, presented to me by a Chilean relative. But Carlin consistently cracks me up.
A Transandean Angelí of sorts, in terms of his concepts and sense of language, though the visual style is very different than the Tupi’s Crumb- and Zap-inspired characters (all male leaders seem to have a heavy 5 o’clock shadow and all female leaders seem to show signs of botox injections.)
