Obama’s probably calling him for tips on how to “win” the election right now.

He who counts the votes wins, especially if he is a “socialist” dictator.

Dunno about that. He seems healthy. Doesn’t look as sick as he has in the past.

Amazing what a manilla envelope containing photos of your children through a telephoto lens can do.

A few more eyes and unemcumbered patriots here, dear.

Still, it is a harbinger.

Thank the LORD for this country, this moment, this opportunity!

We know how the play ends, and we are cast in the last act.

Rumor: Castro’s niece is saying she had the results in advance.

Of course the polls were kept open an extra hour (against Venezuelan law) since the lines were long (read: more time to rig the votes).

The only surprise is that the margin wasn’t closer to 110%.

If you’re going by the pics on Drudge, Drudge posts many file photos, not necessarily current photos or photos related to the links/posts.

The Dictator didn't want to make it seem too obvious.

Anybody check Chavez’ suitcase before the election started? That’s where Zelaya of Honduras had his winning results stored even though the election never took place...

I get the distinct feeling the world is turning 1930ish or 1940ish..
With Americans as disconnected to reality as they were then..

Remember the socialists(soviets, nazis, fascists) merely murdered 100 to 200 million people then.. and made billions miserable..

The current socialists must be hoping for liquidating BILLIONS.....
Starting with many of the Sand Monkeys.. the poor bastards..
They have been playing nife’ games with the worlds socialists..
They don’t know who they are dealing with.. I think..

The Americans?... They are about to get date raped by Obama..
It will be and already is a gang rape..

Romney and Ryan are about to get a colonoscopy Chicago style..
It won’t be pretty.. don’t miss the next debate..
Course it could offend Prince Poppycock..

W’s exit poll numbers were down verses Kerry’s but W actually won the election when the real numbers trickled in. W was accused of Cheating. Similar accusations were lodged against Walker when corrected poll numbers put Walker over the top.

Let’s face it the poor folks south of the border, influenced by activist run Catholic Churches, love socialism. There might have been some cheating but I can believe the numbers went against Chavez’s challenger.
