Leggo my Ego (Morales)

Ah Evo.

Who can forget his “signing” as a pro player by a Bolivian soccer club in 2014?

And of course there’s his new “Evo Museum” built for $7.1 million in his home town of Orinoca (population 900) and dedicated to his life. This has been in the works since 2006, as it was one of Evo’s first acts as president to commission his museum.

Usually, you don’t build the “presidential” library until after you are no longer president. But as far as Evo is concerned, that’s not happening anytime soon. Already on his supposedly impossible (according to the constitution) 3rd term, Evo is still planning on running and winning a fourth term in 2019. This despite last year’s referendum where voters rejected his bid.

“Now, Morales is trying to invalidate the referendum claiming that the opposition had won because of false news reports, and is seeking new ways to reform the constitution to be able to run for a fourth term. He was recently quoted by the daily La Razon online as saying — using a soccer analogy — that the 2016 referendum was only “the first half” of the game and that there will be a “second half.””
