How to demolish the revolution in 12 minutes flat...

Britain’s Channel 4 put together this remarkable news spot on Venezuela, which has pulled off the ultimate coup: it impressed both me and Alek.

The report, really a mini-documentary, makes Chavez look ridiculous merely by playing some of his more outrageous outbursts on Alo, presidente. It covers a lot of ground in a limited amount of time with real finesse. Really it’s pretty devastating.

I don’t think it’s possible to do a better job than this in 12 minutes.
