Chavez reiterates that 'everything indicates they're trying to kill me'
The president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, reiterated today that, again, his most radical opponents have reactivated their assasination plans against him and 'everything indicates that they will be trying to kill me because of what will happen on Sunday'.
Next Sunday, Venezuelans will vote on a constitutional reform with which Chavez intends to install a 'socialism of the 21st century', which his opponents means the installation of a personal dictatorship.

In the [campaign] event, he repeated that recently "a strange light traveled through my body, around here, where my heart is, and then around here", he said while pointing to his head.
"Most likely it was a sniper hiding 100 or 200 meters away in a Caracas building, who aimed a weapon equiped with telescopic sight guided by rays, of which he was alerted to by a TV viewer who immediately alerted the authorities".
His Cuban colleague, Fidel Castro, to whom he said he showed the video when he visited Havana, "told me it was a sniper who didn't fire because he could have gotten cold feet at the precise moment".

Chavez concluded his story by singing a Mexican ranchera song, which chorus goes like this: "I fell from a cloud at 20 meters high, and that was my great adventure"

More fun (in Spanish) at source.
“The laser crossed his body.”
You are correct. I was translating on the fly and laughing at the same time, without much thought.
He must've been a piss-poor shot. I think most of us here could put a cap in him blindfolded.
And would try.
deep belly laugh on that post.
Good one, all they had to do was aim of the center of his buttocks.
This isn't rocket science.
A laser sniper?!! Oh NO! Its PAT ROBERTSON!!!!
Katie Couric, interviewing a Marine sniper: "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist?"
Marine sniper: "A slight recoil."
Chavez is paranoid. And likely for good reason.
Hey, Hugo... Maybe they have good reason to assassinate you.
I find it even harder to imagine that a professional sniper would ever consider using a laser.
Of course he has banned gun ownership except for the police, just like our Democrats are always trying to do. Narcissists are so in love with themselves their greatest fear is losing themselves. Guns in the hands of others scare them more than anything.
Imagine a cheering crowd with scores of people in it carrying laser pointers...
Yeah, that big block-of-a-head would be very hard to miss.
This moron was probably hit with a 25 cent laser pointer. OOOOOOh! Very Scary!
Re “Hugo is getting really nutty. Like Hitler, in the end.”
Gee I thought you were talking about Kucinich, Hillary, Howard Dean, Kennedy and/or Kerry.

It’s getting so that you can’t tell our nuts from their nuts. The Left is like a jar of peanut butter - scrambled nuts in oil.
