Serious steps

"Exclusive: Biden in no rush to lift Venezuela sanctions, seeks 'serious steps' by Maduro" (Spetalnick).  I'm starting to see the brilliance of picking a goof like Guido as the Asshole stalking horse.  He is so ridiculous the Venezuelan government can't possibly "negotiate seriously" with him, meaning that Assholia can continue to keep its sanctions forever, at least based on their unilateral and unreasonable conditions.  Had they picked a far-right politician with even the slightest credibility, the Venezuelan government might have had to take the bait and at least pretend to deal with him.  The fact that he is a ridiculous figure is not a bug but a feature.
