To: Cincinatus' Wife

Oh goodie, so Latin America is slipping back into their self made letist cesspool of old.

To: Cincinatus' Wife; Sea Parrot
to: Cincinatus' Wife --> see what I mean, the headline gives the wrong impression that this leftist turn is what the Peruvians really wanted

Sea Parrot --> the Peruvian elections have multiple candidates and 2 rounds -- if in the first round no one wins 50%+ of the vote, then the top two candidates face off in the second round.

This time what happened was that the two right-wing candidates: Luis Losso and Keiko Fujimori were leading. But then there came two politicians with a centrist policy: Pedro Kyczynski and Alejandro Toledo.

People didn't trust humala or fujimori, but the central votes were split

Hence the run-off was between the leftist and Fujimori.

The Peruvians had two bad choices -- and they picked one. They did not "swing" so much as shrug with no options and trudge.
