Al Giordano on the Desafuero in Mexico

Giordano reports that there were over one million people in Mexico City's Zocolo this morning, despite temperatures over 100 degrees. He includes some interesting comparisons between Mexico City mayor Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., suggesting that this may become Mexico's first non-violent revolution.

Surprisingly, even the Washington Post defended AMLO in an editorial, calling the case against him "trivial." (Of course, the Post had to get in their usual cheap shots against Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, saying he "has wrecked his country's private sector and made most of its people poorer," without any evidence, of course.)
