Six days after his last public appearance, Hugo Chávez is on TV again. Same setting. Pretty much the same attendees. Zero contact with the people.
The topic of his boring talk today? The regional elections, and how the opposition is apparently moronic for thinking that something called “Constitutional” had anything to do with modifying the Constitution itself.
No, Chávez said, the “Constituional” debates going on within the ruling PSUV are not debates about the Constitution. Idiots! They are debates about how Chávez is going to save the planet. After all, he has a mandate for that.
Is the inability to think logically a symptom of the latter stages of cancer…? Just wonderin’.
