Sunday afternoon marcha-aerobics 

The Eastern Caracas elite, instead of going to their usual Sunday morning baila-aerobics (dance aerebics), decided to have a little march and rally today. They got to vent about Chavez and burn some calories at the same time.

This time they managed to avoid completely embarrassing themselves and actually got maybe 30,000 people to show up. What I thought was funny though was they still have the "Gente de Petroleo" walking around with their dumb t-shirts and people carrying posters of Carlos Ortega. One of these days they'll probably figure out they are not winning any friends by doing that.

Anyways, is it just me or does anyone else notice they hold rallies when they are sure there aren't going to be any elections anytime soon to burst the balloon of their absurd numbers? After all, they'll probably be claiming a million people showed up and it would be pretty silly to claim that and then a month later have to pull out of an election because you know hardly anyone will vote for you. Fortunately for them there are no more votes until December. So maybe they'll even have some more rallies. Lucky Caracas.
