Somehow, the sheer surreal edge of Chávez’s latest unhinged rant somehow doesn’t quite come through until you read it in translation. Rory Carroll’s piece in The Guardian today is one for the ages.
Honestly, though, puzzle this through with me: what do you think the Median voter makes of Chávez’s discourse as it now stands?
Really, in the absence of an intemperate response from the other side, in what imaginable universe is this kind of unhinged shit a net vote winner for the Chávez?
Say it with me now…
