Chavez's allies won a majority in Venezuela's local elections, but the opposition made important gains, capturing the Caracas mayor's office and two of the most populous states.

OK: WARNING! I totally don't know about what's going on in Venezuela, so you best look for the "story" elsewhere; I just think Hugo Chavez is funny. Don't you? I do. And I love that he has this thing for waving books around, spokemodel-stylee, at the podium. It's so fun! You know what would be totally, totally fun? If Chavez did his speeches while holding up and tossing aside the cue cards, like in that Bob Dylan video thing. Ha, ha! Oh, Hugo, you ARE a lot of fun, but you could be way more funner.
