Hack of the Day

Fernando Henrique Cardoso [again]. To wit, three moments in history:

Although Cardoso remains the symbolic “head” of the PSDB, he stopped being a serious political figure years ago, thanks in no small part to his irrational hatred and hypocritical attitudes towards the PT. To be clear, there are plenty of legitimate criticisms of Rousseff and of the PT more generally that one can lobby, but you don’t hear them come from Cardoso. This latest ad hominem and unrealistic criticism of the PT is just another reminder of how far he’s fallen from his status as a progressive sociologist during the military dictatorship.
