    • 2010-09-19, Editorial Radio YSUCA, Una derecha desfasada :
      Pero incluso sabiendo esto, son incapaces de crear un nuevo liderazgo, más abierto a nuestra realidad y más enfocado a vencer la desigualdad. Repiten la sopa recalentada de liderazgos viejos y traen al país —no sabemos si para renovarse— a personajes de la ralea de Micheletti.
      But, even aware of this, they [our right-wing politicians] are incapable of creating a new leadership more open to our reality and better focused to defeat inequality. [Instead,] they repeat the same reheated soup of old leaders and they bring (we're not sure if it's to renew themselves) people of Micheletti's ilk to the country.
