Lujambio's Hat: In the Ring

Alonso Lujambio declares himself ready to accept the PAN's presidential nomination, and in so doing, strikes a less-than-inspiring note:
We're not leaving neither through votes nor through bullets, we're going to stay in 2012 to legitimize our electoral triumph.
He also added that the PAN civilized "the troglodytes, the cavemen that said that they had arrived via bullets and only through bullets were they going to leave". I don't know, call me old-fashioned, but I think you should limit the formation of the word "bullets" on your lips as much as possible during a presidential announcement. "Troglodytes" too, for that matter. Although I imagine the first quote played off of the second in such a way that sounded less jarring in person.
