Eva Golinger can certainly give thanks for the fat check on her way after last night performance. But other chavistas might not have as much to thank for as their micomandantepresidente is losing his marbles and the country is going bankrupt: where will they steal from next year?
The Venezuelan opposition has very little to thank for, but then again they did not work very efficiently for that. At least they can be thankful that Chavez is losing his marbles and thus is making their job a tad easier.
The chavista voter has little to thank for as all the misiones are tanking and inflation is killing them.
The opposition voter can be thankful for, I suppose, if s/he did not get shot yet, if the business has not been "expropriado" yet, if the kids can now study overseas, that the closest grocery store is not a Mercal or an Abasto Bicentenario, etc, etc....
Cubans are thankful that the sucker in Caracas kept sending checks through the year.
Republicans can be thankful that they got Congress.
Democrats and Liberals can be thankful that they clung to the Senate and that there is no way Obama can be impeached.
But there is one guy that cannot be thankful for anything: Chavez. He does not even have a documented failed assassination attempt that he could use to justify his paranoia. And things are so bad that he finally decided to forbid using his personality cult imagery everywhere because he finally realized that people are associating him with all the unfinished and abandoned projects.....
And this blogger is thankful for all the readers that stuck with him in spite of a more erratic writing and much bitter mood than years past. I mean it.
Have a good Thanksgiving!
