International Politics

February 17, 2012

Down Venezuela way they’re setting up for an election. Recent contests have not gone to well for those who’ve chosen to challenge Hugo Chavez. Like many a good American, I’ve jingoistically been directed into not being such a big fan of the Venezuelan President; and he’s not so good, but I’m not really sure why I should care. Anyway, the opposition has united and chosen a sucker to go up against Hugo. Recently, this is how Chavez spoke about Henrique Capriles:

“Now we have the loser, welcome! We’re going to pulverise you,” he told an audience of medical students. “You have a pig’s tail, a pig’s ears, you snort like a pig, you’re a low-life pig. You’re a pig, don’t try and hide it.” He avoided calling Capriles by name, referring instead to “el majunche”, slang for “the crappy one.

I may not be a fan, but from afar, that’s kind of funny.

hat tip to my good friend Alex.

    Are you sure he wasn’t talking about Sarah Palin?

    The reason you aren’t sure why you should care is because you are an inveterate hater of all that is good and free in the world. Not to mention apple pie, mom and Mrs. Cunningham.
