Festive Left Friday Blogging: Before I forget…

…there’s a little something that happened in Venezuela this past week. Commemorating something that happened (and failed) nine years ago:

Oh yeah, and Chavecito showed up to give a little speech. With flu and all. What a trooper! No wonder the putschists failed in April 2002. Even if they’d succeeded in killing him, his ghost would still have gotten up and kicked their asses. Just like Che, no?

PS: For a good chuckle, if you know Spanish, clicky here and watch this video. Seems that the fake attorney general appointed by the fake self-proclaimed president did something telling and cowardly when the palace guards arrested him and stashed him along with several other putschists in the basement as a prisoner. What was it? Well, let’s just say this: His eyes weren’t the only part of him that was wet.

    That was too good to pass up. I think I know why he wet himself. If he and the other rabbiblancos had been successful in their putsch, he was imagining that what he would have done to the members of Chavez’ government was going to be done to him.
    But don’t just watch the narration of the history of the Attorney General who peed his pants. The speech that President Chavez gave upon resuming his rightful office was the most powerful and moving speech I have heard in a very, very long time. He would give Dr. King a run for his money in speeches that move people. Perhaps President Obama, Hillary and Bobby Gates should have a sit-down on a Saturday night for the movie of the week. This would be the feature. I’ll bring the popcorn. You bring the jujubees. They can bring their own damn translators.

      Ah, there’s nobody like Chavecito for speechifyin’, that’s true…except maybe Dr. King and Fidel. Both of whom are kindred spirits to him in many ways.

      And yeah, I bet Daniel Romero was scared shitless that he’d be lynched, the way the oppos keep trying to lynch the Chavistas. Lucky for him that Chavecito’s got the most humane government Venezuela has ever had. Last time I saw his long lugubrious face, he was carrying CAP’s coffin in Miami, along with the rest of the mafiosi. He should be rotting in jail for treason, but I guess he was let go.
