Merry Not-Quite-Christmas! Here’s what’s blipping on Aunt ‘Bina’s ol’ radarscope tonight…

Oh noes, that evil Chavecito just decided to “rename” Angel Fallswith its original, indigenous name! Horrors! Why must these nasty brown Venezuelans get so uppity and insist on being all sovereign and insubordinate to the anglo foreigners? Is that any way to treat your ex-overlords?

Matt Taibbi gives David Brooks an atomic wedgie. Yeow!

Aw, the ooky corruptocratic paraco-government of Colombia believes in Santy Claus. Isn’t that cute?

The Inter-American Press Barons’ Association is getting nowhere in Venezuela and Bolivia, so now it’s training its crosshairs on Ecuador. No, they NEVER learn.

Oh noes, Venezuela has signed another oil deal with China! BTW, China/Venezuela trade has increased 13-fold since 2003 but guess who’s misreporting that as a mere threefold?

And just as I thought he would be, boli-bourgeois bankster Eligio Cedeño has been sprung. Of course they’re not interested in deporting him, any more than they would the CubanaBomber; he’s bringing “home” all that ill-gotten dinero he stole from the people of Venezuela. So of course the only charges against him are the usual illegal-immigration wrist-slaps. (What–did you think he was gonna get the impoverished-Mexican treatment? Silly gringos.)

    Chávez was selling arepas yesterday, right now he is selling cars. Strange duties for a head of state 🙂

  2. I have a feeling no one in the lamestream media would complain if he would only sell Venezuela…to the lowest bidder.

    Linky about those “socialist” areperas (“socialist” here just means non-profit, basically). They actually look good:

  4. 5 balls and everything on it? Sounds like it beats a hotdog anyday…

  5. Manaat says:

    I was wondering why you said “5 balls” and just realized you were translating “5 bolos”. Bolo = Diminutive of “bolivar”

  6. And *I* was wondering why they spelled “bolas” so strangely. LOL!
    (I also wondered what was in those balls. BTW, just to further confuse things, “bolo” is the Venezuelan word for “bowling”.)
