Heard on Univision

Today Venezuelans as voting for President and running are the current strongman Castro-admirer leftwing nut Hugo Chávez, who over the years has shut down opposition newspapers, TV stations and other media, and who has even organized paramilitary militias to support him.

Running against him (and putting his life into the election) is a younger, more moderate centrist challenger, Henrique Capriles Radonski, and for the first time in almost a decade and a half, things look shaky for Hugo... if the voting is actually done fairly, that is. The government militias are apparently on the look out to make sure that "things go right..."

Univision reports that Hugo Chávez has essentially threatened violence across the country if he doesn't win - he won't be able to "restrain" the disappointed masses, who apparently have forgotten what a democracy is supposed to be like. However, the Venezuelan Justice Minister, Tarek El Aissami, has all but guaranteed "fair elections."

Like Stalin said: It's not the people who vote that count, it's the people who count the votes. 

Remember that when we have our election and your candidate doesn't win...

Update: Guess who was declared the winner? Didn't we know ahead of time?
