Meet the new asshole, same as the old asshole.
Of course, with the MSM focused on Deep Throat, Gitmo, and whether or not Michael Jackson's a weirdo, it's no surprise if you're one of the folks who haven't heard that La Paz is under siege as we speak.
No, I'm not being too harsh. Chavez' buddy in Bolivia is doing in that country's fragile little democracy in classic style, combining Marxist demagoguery and every ounce of identity-politics-turned-violent that can be scraped together, in order to level everything and seize power. Call it the "Castro Method" for getting onto the Fortune 500 lists.
Perhaps I'm being unfair. Unlike Guevara, so far as we know, Morales hasn't had a hungry little peasant girl shot in the face for stealing food. Though no doubt Morales is about to become the darling of the cheerfully murderous left as they go into yet another round of self-righteous ideological preening, facts and the fates of actual people be damned.
THIS is why we have a Second Amendment, boys and girls. A Demagogue is nothing but a Tyrant waiting to enter into the chrysalis of power.
