The Cardinal will not be allowed to sing (Updated)

Funny how these things work. When you’ve decided that the spat with the Cardinal is a losing strategy because it reminds voters that we’re headed for Communism, and you engender an international crisis to change the topic, the last thing you want to do is to go back to last week’s news cycle.

Update: El Universal is tweeting that the Cardinal wanted the hearing to be public because he was attacked publicly, but Cilia Flores has denied his request. Dissident congressman Juan Jose Molina is tweeting the hearings.

Update 2: The Cardinal’s words, here. The words of the chavista deputies, here.

Update 3: Chavistas are all smiles. El Chiguire Bipolar has his own take.
