The Cadena that Wasn’t

For once, today, Venezuela faced a situation where a Cadena Nacional would have been entirely appropriate, even welcome. Facing a genuine national disaster, people naturally turn to their leader for explanation, for guidance, for leadership, for solace.

Handling events like last night’s is why Cadenas are supposed to exist in the first place, ¡coño!

And what did we get?

A brief telephone call to VTV.

The rodent has this one right: it’s as though Cadenas are now reserved exclusively for campaigning.
