Portugal's dimmed memories of repression

Randy says it best: good God. Having studied military dictatorships and military state-society relations for awhile, I'm not unfamiliar with the dulling of memories over time and even the perverse reminiscence (during good times and bad) for the "good old days" of torture, repression, and lack of democracy. Still....what the heck is wrong with the Portuguese on this?
