Morales, the new Guevara

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.

Yeah, no kidding. I was rather suprised to learn about La Paz after this had been gong on for about 4 weeks. Funny, never heard anything and we have the TV on to the news channels 24/7 in the TOC. MSM sucks big ass.

It's amazing how worthless the MSM is for actually having a clue what's going on in the world. That's supposed to be their primary job description, right?

Nope! It's their job to sell advertising.

jimdesu just knocked it out of the ballpark. I described Cobell v. Norton in class this evening as a textbook case of Garbage Can bureaucracy, and had people riveted. Most had never even heard of it.
