from Georgie Ann Geyer (on Yahoo News):
We now have in Venezuela the first revolution in Latin America (if we can
quite call it a revolution) that is totally supported by the United States.
The Venezuelan story gets crazier and crazier.
Six years ago when Chavez was running for president and I interviewed him
for several hours, at one point he was sitting on his couch underneath a
huge and vivid painting of his hero Simon Bolivar and talking into his cell
phone with such passion that for a moment I had the fleeting impression
that he was actually talking to Bolivar, dead these many years.
When I see what has happened now -- with American oil companies, and indeed
through them the American people, financing the virulently anti-American
Chavez revolution -- I can only think that talking to Bolivar might be one
of the more believable things happening.
