Not even a little surprised
The great little-d democrat of the Western world, Hugo Chavez, is apparently going to try to "persuade" the people of Venezuela to reconsider their rejection of his presidency-for-life proposal. He wants to be president until 2019 or 2021.
I shouldn't have to say a word. Perhaps, once the Mesopotamian adventure has come to an end, President Obama can start dealing with backyard tin-pot potentates. Domestic misdeeds notwithstanding, it isn't like Venezuela isn't doing things on the foreign policy front that would worry anyone with a computer and a 12th-grade education.
Wait. It is. In a big way.
I just wonder how much more Venezuelan magic is going to go down before people start to say "no" to cultural ambassadors of a regime that is not even remotely pro-American.
