Venezuela going genuinely democratic?

Via Instapundit, Publius Pundit is blogging the democratic revolution down in Caracas. He's got lotsa links & a few good pix.

Chavez has been dangerously high-handed toward his own people, like any good despot wannabe. It looks as though the public is finally mad as hell and not gonna take it any more.

And, what will his neighboring countries do while the demonstrations are going on? Chavez has reportedly funded "revolutionaries" on the other side of his borders, to try to create or exacerbate chaos, especially in struggling Colombia.

He'd be a tasty morsel for some ambitious Brazilian, for example... and I can't help but think that, since he has expressed his support for Castro and the jihadists, our own government would not be upset if he were to be removed from his stately palace.

Hmmmmmmm. Venezuela is also very rich in petroleum... somebody, can we actually involve ourselves in a genuine war for oil?

ooooh, I'm gonna catch it, now, just for joking about it, ain't I?
