Not only our now deceased Venezuelan President Carlos Andres exhibited moments of brilliant intellectual fogginess such as the one illustrated by the quote above, but candidates for the U.S. presidency can do so as well. In fact, even excel our Carlos Andres.
Mrs. Hillary Clinton just said, talking about Venezuela:
“It’s a democracy. No one would argue that it isn’t…. But a democracy doesn’t just mean an election. A democracy means a free press. Protecting the rights of opponents. Protecting a free economy. Having an independent judiciary. So other than elections, there aren’t very many characteristics of a real democracy right now in Venezuela.”
So, is it or is it not Venezuela a democracy? If we were to depend on Mrs. Clinton’s opinion we would never find out. We must remember that she fell down some time ago and hit her head. Will she able to run and, even more threatening, will she win?
