Desperation (Updated)

Impartial custodians of democracy.

The picture above shows the Venezuelan Independence Day Military parade. “Corazón Venezolano” is the campaign slogan for Hugo Chávez’s re-election.

How is this not a bigger scandal?

UPDATE: Reader LD tells me that the logo is not the logo for the Chávez campaign exactly. That one is “Corazón de mi Patria.” The logo is political advertisement for the government, apparently. Which is even more troubling because … why is a publicity campaign parading with the military? Get ready for the funeral, monigotes, ’cause you’re on your way out.
