Et tu, Hugo?

There’s something about Hugo Chavez that makes him a guilty pleasure. His speech at the UN that got all those Bushie noses out of joint? Classic. I like that he’s serious about sharing Venezuela’s oil wealth around a bit. That’s something that I highly doubt his opponents would do. The alternative to him is very likely another Latin America oligarchy.

That said, I was more than a little concerned about Chavez’s latest shut down of opposition media outlets. Larry Gambone posts a rebuttal on the topic in Sisyphus’ comments section. I understand where Larry is coming from but I’m still leery of this new authoritarian lurch from Chavez.
