    At least you know where you stand ... with most politicians it's more of a case of "making you an offer you can't understand" (probably because the microphone is pointing the wrong way).

    Phew you had me worried....only the Mafia...I thought you were going to tell us he was a Fundamental Christian middle American with shares in a bunker and a gun fetish. Now that would be way scary

    Do you know the meaning of menino ?
    Menino means in Portuguese - I don't know the meaning in Spanish - a little boy.
    It is a tender way to call a young masculine child.
    Baby-faced according to this translation.
