Ah. Another feminist who manifests her hatred towards the supposed patriarchy by worshipping her very own chosen strongman; namely, Hugo.

And judging by her presentation, her so-called socialist convictions seem to stem mainly from White Australian guilt.

Yeah, I'm familiar with these people. Move on, nothing to see here.

I'll take a look, but, to be honest, I can't stand "enthusiasm". Earnestness makes me want to gag because my automatic assumption is that it is married up with a complete lack of critical thought. Very, very few things seem worth unreserved buy-in from my POV, and I'm related to most of them.

Love the juxtaposition of Spock, BTW. :^)

I was thinking of you and Carlos when I put it up.

I agree with you about earnestness, Bernard, and I agree with Jussi about the probable origin's of Ms. Pearson's enthusiasm.

That said, what I enjoy about her blog is a combination of two things: a ground-level view of the construction of the PSUV political machine, and her inability to recognize the machine for what it is.

So you get to learn a lot about both Hugo's political strategy and how he handles public relations, much more than you would if it was written by, say, P.J. O'Rourke in his younger days. Or me.

I should add her that if I took Chávez seriously as a threat, I'd get angry at her earnestness. I don't, though --- he looks increasingly likely to do serious economic damage to his country, but plenty of less theatrical leaders in that unfortunate land have pulled off the same hat trick.
