Saturday cartoons

For a lighter Saturday, have three cartoons of Tal Cual's Weil, back from a long holiday.  Also for me a good way to make a quick post as I am way too busy in Caracas these days....
On the opposition primary and its candidates.

An imaginary PSUV primary campaign debate.  Chavez is alone, the moderator is chavista and yet Chavez decides to skip the question.  No kidding, I am sure that this has crossed Chavez mind, how to debate himself....

Why Chavez hates so much the concept of opposition primary debates: during a cadena of B.S. his supporters prefer to discuss the opposition candidates merits and demerits.

Note that Weil has put back Chavez with a boot head since he claims he is cured and the air grows again.

And now for a candidate cartoon, Arria as a ball wrecker

"Let me explain to you the first thing we need to do with an illegitimate government"


  1. Weil is brilliant. It takes particular genius to reduce all the babble to one image.

  2. Next time some PSF comes around praising Hugo's democratic credentials, please reply with a link to this post. If they can't explain a way around those first two, yet continue in their ways, it will be crystal clear that they simply do not understand democracy.

    Maybe I'm overthinking it, or maybe I'm late to some internal joke, but what's the shoe supposed to mean?

  4. shoe = military boot = thinking and acting as a unitary FORCE

  5. I wonder if Weil knows the term "jack-booted thug." He certainly understands the meaning.

  6. first time I read that term, AIO. "jack-booted thug" is a perfect description of what Weil incorporates in his at-a-glance drawings and of what really happens behind the scenes of this regime.

This is an anti Chavez/chavismo blog, Readers have made up their minds long ago. Trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
