News: Whoops

Looks like the Hugo Chevez train derailed somewhere along the way. In a startling display of intelligent self-interest, voters defeated a bunch of measures that would have given the Venezuelan president more power over the economy. I suppose the RCTV thing ticked off more people than Chavez thought.

Then again, when you have an amendment up for vote that essentially says, "Let me rule over you for life," it doesn't take a genius to figure out that it might not be a good idea. But then again, what do you expect from somebody with a huge ego?:

Have you seen the clip of The King of Spain telling Chavez to shut up? It's great.

Chavez. It's shit to be a journalist in Chavez land--you don't just get shut down, you get disappeared and shit.

That said, as far as egomanical despots go?
I have a soft spot in my heart for a different latin american nutjob. <3 <3
