Merry Christmas, Bitches

Hey all, remember me? Taking a fatty break from blogging right in the middle of Morales' historic electoral victory. 63% for Evo and 2/3 in the Senate, which translates to all you haters can suck it. Now the fun really begins.

Some comrades and I stored up on beer for the Sunday election and enjoyed a beautiful sunny and clear day in La Paz rather than blog the inevitable in a dark room all day. By the time everyone got to Plaza Murillo for Evo's speech that night with the Paceños busting out the singani things were a little out of control. Here is my fuzzy drunk photo of Evo and Alvaro. I've been on break since.

So let's catch up on some of the latest I missed in case you don't read my superior brother and sister sites linked on the side.

  • Evo's successful economic policies are being talked about everywhere now, even by the last people to catch up on global affairs,US academic professors.
  • Hillary Clinton is not Evo Morales' mom.
  • Yes, it turns out those neo-nazi mercenaries hired to assassinate Evo Morales really were dirt bags, big surprise. And there may have been a second Irish gun-nut.  
  • Oh noes! All of the leading opposition figures and TV magnates are getting their property seized. Isn't it weird how all of the opposition leaders just happen to own huge tracts of land with irregular titles? It is almost like they had a vested material interest in stopping Morales and his land reform efforts. I know, crazy conspiracy theory.

    Merry Christmas!

    More spam getting in. "Bathmate" seems to be an erectile dysfunction cure site :)
