They’re having fun right now in Brazil, impeaching President Rousseff

Right now I am spending a wonderful spring night listening to the proceedings in Brazil’s House where they are currently voting to impeach President Dilma Rousseff. The voting is still going on but Rousseff is going to be defeated, and I guess the next step is a trial in the Senate. 

Even though I am no good at Portuguese, I am having no trouble figuring out how these deputies are voting — Sim or Nao. And there is a lot of cheering and a lot of noise. Sort of like a soccer game down there.
