Two earthquakes have shaken Spanish political life in the past week. First were the massive sit-ins that had tens of thousands of citizens camping out in the public squares of major cities, in protest of the country's capsized economy and unresponsive political class. The second came last night, when voters in regional and municipal elections delivered a sound drubbing to the governing Socialist Party (PSOE). Now, in Monday's harsh light, no one seems sure whether the first phenomenon had anything to do with the second. And everyone is wondering what both mean for the future of Spain.
