The Dictator's Tell

The Instapundit understands how dictators think [emphasis added]:
DANIEL ORTEGA ASKS FOR TERM LIMITS TO BE OVERTHROWN. Best argument yet for what happened in Honduras. If a sitting U.S. President made a similar effort, I’d favor removing him, too. It’s the dictators’ tell. Well, one of ‘em. Then there’s this: “Last week the court’s constitutional panel obliged him. The Nicaraguan press reported that the vote was held before three opposition judges could reach the chamber in time for the session. Three alternative judges, all Sandinistas, took their place and the court gave Mr. Ortega the green light. Mr. Ortega has decreed that the ruling cannot be appealed.”
