And just so that I don’t get accused by the Minister of Information William Lara, who incestually continues to be the official spokesman for Chavez’ political party MVR, this post will represent the official coverage of Chavez’ South American trip by The Devil’s Excrement.
The picture below is Chavez in Bolivia using a military salute, while wearing a Bolivian ruana and flower guirnaldas given to him by the Bolivians. I don’t want to minimize the trip or the picture, to use the Minister’s words, but I can’t help but feel that Chavez does not look too comfy in it. Not because of the serious face, he clearly enjoys wearing costumes as history has shown, but because he was not given a red shirt and/or a military uniform/hat/weapon (Note military salute even in their absence), which always makes him right at home even at high altitudes.
Chavez was also in Argentina, but we only provide international coverage for events with two Heads of State (note Evo in the background of the picture) and not one, as was the case in that stadium rally in Argentina. By the way, that stadium held 40,000 people without using the field, so that 20,000 attendees is a very poor showing. It does go to show that next time they have to double the budget for the event or pay half the amount per person if they want to fill it to capacity. PDVSA really blew it this time. Somebody should be reprimanded for not being rojito enough.
And yes, I did not provide coverage of the other meeting to the north with the guy from even further north, even if it had two world leaders in it. There were three reasons for this: First, none of them were a Venezuelan Head of State and this blog is about Venezuela. Second, having a picture of those two may have represented a historical low for The Devil’s Excrement. Finally, last time I mentioned just some candidates for President of the Evil Empire, we ended talking about Global Warming in the comments and exceeded the limit in the number of comments.
How much lower could a blog get?
