Marcos again .... what this time?

In the four dimensional chess game that is Mexican politics, it is hard to tell what is real and what is not, who is sincere, and who is attempting to fool the voters, and who is trying to help a candidate by criticizing him, and who is really running things.

Last month Subcomandante Marcos met with 60 Indian organizations (trying to convince the press that, a. he is not dead, and b. someone should care about it). Marcos attacked the PRD, specifically Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. The subcomandante portrayed AMLO's renovation of the historical centro as a giveaway to billionaire Carlos Slim.

OK, Subcomandante (or whatever title you have invented for yourself these days), what is your agenda? Do you want to help the PRI by discrediting the PRD? Do you want AMLO to go to the Lacandon and negotiate a cabinet post in exchange for your support? Do you fantasize that Mexicans from across the Republic will on election day say "AMLO No, Subcomandate Si"?
