Yeah, well, what can I say? Typical. I live next to those guys.

Though Correa wasn't all that satisfied with the outcome.

I think that even Chavez isn't that crazy.

I think Chavez is that crazy. He's playing a dangerous game, too.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

Crazy enough to risk his economy? I know he's a nutjob, but I think he won't do anything that drastic if it has negative consequences for him in the long run.

That's the thing--he doesn't think he can fail.

Well, he _does_ have a pretty good track record.

That's a good point.

He lost a referendum not too long ago, and acepted the loss. So no, he knows he can fail. And, while I disagree with his political standpoint and his speeches of ultimate boredom, I think he's one of the brighter (non western) heads of state. Not that it says much, but still...


Checking out seems not to do much.

Chavez thinks his is Simon Bolivar ... he really wants to unite what the Great Colombia was ... he wants to unite Venezuela,Colombia and Ecuador as a nation ... he is alittle out of his mind ...

And? Countless heads of state want to bring back a "glorious past", very few are insane enough to try to do it.
