Chavez on my mind.

I'm reading Richard Gott's book, Hugo Chavez and the Bolivarian Revolution. So, admittedly, I've got the Venezuelan leader on my mind. Yet, somehow, I missed the whole election thing they had going on last Sunday. Go figure.

If I had to guess, I'd say the media was mostly silent about it because they knew how it was going to turn out and they didn't want to give any of us 'citizens' up here any high-falootin' ideas.
The pro-Chavez United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) won 72% of the governorships in the November 23, 2008 elections and 58% of the popular vote, dumbfounding the predictions of most of the pro-capitalist pollsters and the vast majority of the mass media who favored the opposition.
I'll be watching Frontline tonight since it's all about Chavez. He isn't a saint or anything, but he certainly knows how to stick to 'the man.'
