Esteban comes out of his concha. Time for a Live Blog.
1:15 – Wow, that’s how long I could take that…
1:06 – The murderer of Maracay is the victim in all this. Throw the stone, hide the hand. Man, I’d forgotten how irritating watching a full cadena is.
1:00 – “Each time something like this happens the opposition continues to delegitimize itself.” I don’t think I’ve ever seen it so plainly stated. Otro peine más.
12:57 - The game here is clear: 2012=2002. The only way to sidestep it is to simply ignore it.
12:55 - The provocation strategy over the Cuadernos just won’t play…if we don’t respond.
12:52 - The Cuaderno power-play was obviously a play from on high.
12: 50 – “Sunday saw an important process – we should congratulate them. That’s the road.” Apparently hay un camino.
12:48 - “Now Carmona has his candidate.”
12:45 – Henrique Capriles = Jean Marie Le Pen. Wow, now the guy is a French gay nazi zionist TFP guy.
12:40 - Casquillo, casquillo y más casquillo. Nothing new here.
12:36 - “Watch out for that little bourgeois discourse on Unity.”
12:35 – The Chávez Primary is in Full Swing – anoints Rangel Gomez for another term.
12:27 - Chávez in Catedra Bolivariana mode. Boooo-ring.
12:19 – 13 years on, people are still sending pleas for help to Chávez in little folded up bits of paper. #EsQueNoAprendenCoño!
12:12 - OK, I can’t follow this guy much longer. Back when(/if) Esteban steps up.
12:10 – “Los neo-esclavistas sumisos a las ordenes del imperio” DRINK!
12:09 – For once in my life, I actually want to hear what Chávez has to say…and he won’t say it!
12:07 - Worst. Cadena. Ever. Let the lunatic rant, coño!
12:04 - OK, time for an El Aissami drinking game: “el imperio retrogrado y decadente” – DRINK!
11:59 - I suppose chavistas keep speeches like this at the ready on their desktop so they can cut-and-paste it in case they need to give it at the last minute. Bolívar…bla bla…sovereignty…bla bla…Zzzzzzzzz.
11:58 - El Aisszzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzami.
11: 55 – Tarek El Aissami takes the podium.
11:53 - Brown-nose-a-thon…man! Glad that’s over.
11:52 - Clearly nobody there is paying any attention to Rangel Gómez
11:50 – Governor Rangel Gómez takes the podium. Wait, Chávez won’t speak? (Didn’t quite catch the Speaker line up.)
11:49 - Simon Bolivar is the only Venezuelan whose name isn’t immediately followed by his cedula number.
