Mexico: The boob tube UPDATED with VIDEO

There’s Obama’s Julia, and then there’s Mexican Julia:

The Mexican presidential candidates had a televised debate, and to make the proceedings more interesting (at least to the male audience), and Julia Orayen, the girl who handed out the urn filled with bits of paper determining the order that candidates would speak wore this:

Alfredo Figueroa, director of the Federal Electoral Institute responsible for organizing the debate, blamed the incident on a production associate hired by the institute to help with the debate. The institute later issued an apology to Mexican citizens and the candidates for the woman’s dress.

Figueroa told MVS radio that he had requested an aide in “sober dress.”

Interviewed by the Cadena Tres TV network, Orayen said the production team gave her instructions to wear a long, white dress, but she picked it up from her own closet.

Obviously, “sober dress” means different things to different people.

She’s been declared “winner of the debate“.

UPDATE,
Let’s go to the video!

A tale of two Julias!

    I think the Mexican election authorities should handle all future debates here in the US. :)

    That Julia seems to be sufficiently advantaged that she would never see a need to be under Obama as was the case for the cut-out version.

    And what was the apology for?

    There may be some truth to the rumor that a lot of illegals are heading back across the border.
