Adeus Brasil, descanse em paz

Farewell Brazil, rest in peace!

That is exactly what will happen to Brazil's position as a rising power now that they've sworn in the first female successor to their wildly popular ex-President - Luis Inacio Lula da Silva.

Mrs Dilma Rousseff has already shown her true colours in her opening Congress address: "My promise is ... to honour women, to protect the most fragile, and to govern for all." (emphasis mine). Note that she places women first and everyone else second. That should raise the red flag on her feminist agenda if it wasn't already obvious just from looking at her smug mug.

According to Yahoo! News, "the coming decade looks bright for Brazil, with massive, offshore oil reserves due to be exploited and the country preparing to host the World Cup and the Olympic Games." Uh-uh, not for long. Not with a feminazi President at the helm.

Of course I stand corrected if she proves herself in the long run. That will be a rare case; a 66/1 odds inasmuch as the possibility of David and Victoria Beckham splitting up. But there are too many precedents for me not to raise this red flag seriously. Look at the number of women who have come to power and abused their position: Elena Kagan; Hilary Clinton; Sonia Sotomayor; Sarah Palin; Nancy Pelosi; Carly Fiorina; Angela Merkel, Harriet Harman, Jacqui Smith, Hazel Blears et al. Every single one of these women have brought ruin in their wake.

It can be said that the sun is at its very zenith when it starts to set. In the corporate world, each new change in management heralds the disposing of the old and the inculcation of the new. Brazil will now be entering the throes of its wane, a quick descent down the slippery slope of perdition. We, the rest of the world must stand and watch as years of toil will now be undone once Mrs Rousseff sinks her fangs in.

Requiescat in pace Brazil.
Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison,
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.
