Miss Venezuela’s Silent Anti-Chavez Protest…
Weasel Zippers ^ | August 27, 2010

Beautiful beyond belief and anti-Marxist. Now, that’s a winning combination!… (Powerline)- We missed an important moment at the Miss Universe pageant on Saturday night. The outgoing Miss Universe made a little political statement on her final catwalk that was visible to Venezuelans but probably no one else, holding up an obsolete seven star pre-Chavez era flag. She did it to signal distress in her country, and nowhere is that move evident than in Venezuela’s violent crime. This week the news came out that Caracas is the most violent city in the world, a distinction it holds over Kabul, Baghdad, Sao Paulo and Ciudad Juarez.

Hugo Chavez has made Venezuela a real hellhole and that’s prompting little public statements amid public discord. Investor’s Business Daily brings the news in “The killing fields of Caracas.”...

Someone tell Sean Penn. There is a fabulous picture of her at the link. She is gorgeous, and I was rooting for her, but Miss Mexico, who is also beautiful won. I predict this young woman moves to Miami to work for Telemundo.

"I predict this young woman moves to Miami to work for Telemundo."

There's also the possibility that she could become a political prisoner in one of Chavez's jails. I doubt he's happy about the image.

Once she starts rubbing elbows with the Hollywood trash she’ll likely become another Gloria Estefan.

Why not credit an act of political courage when you see one?

I think she was the outgoing Miss Universe, who is Venezuelan, right?

I suspect she has a US (or some other country) visa, as such a protest won't received well by Hugo. It might be dangerous for her to return to VZ after this.

“Did he and Chavez get engaged yet?”

Nope, they are waiting to see if the 9th Circus overthrows the people of California! Once that is done, THEN he will announce their engagement and set a wedding date!

Another couple of non-guilty photos for the gentlemen.

I wonder how much The enquirer will pay for the photos?

Do you really know her motives for saying this? I don’t and I think I’ll wait to see how this plays out longer term.
