Chavez in campaign

Chavismo electoral campaigns are not what they used to be.  This picture in Tal Cual tells us how distant the president is getting and how sloppy his staff is getting.



In no particular order:

  • The armored truck with probably a trap for Chavez to slide it in easily.  Not that I reproach him his security arrangement, he is the president after all, but if Chavez claims the opposition is always trying to kill him and that the opposition does not dare to campaign in slums of his adoring followers, what is he afraid of?  Or am I the only one in seeing that contradiction within his speech?
  • It is a legislative election, remember?  You can easily recognize Chavez, you can easily see all sorts of cameramen putting up for prosperity the glories of the beloved leader but you can barely make out where the candidates are.
  • Red shirted sanitary cordon on each side to make sure the beloved Supremo is, well, whatever...
  • AND THE FUCKING TRASH that the advance team was not able to collect or hide!!!!!!  Eleven years in office and trash piles up in popular areas as if nothing ever happened....
Tal Cual writes that when Chavez is asked by the crowd about such problems as the garbage his reply has been "back after the 26" or something to that effect.....

    I like the woman on the right, looking back. Clearly not the hypnotized trance of a fan base that can't get enough of their idol.

    Is it me or are there more people protecting Chavez than trying to meet him?

    @Kepler: I was thinking Dali, rather than Goya.

  9. De la serie Los Desastres del Caudillismo, la obra Chávez come a sus hijos.

    Every detail...amazing, es para cubrir toda una pared en El Prado.

1) Comments are moderated after the third day of publication. It may take up to a day or two for your note to appear then.

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
