Watching Venezuela

Say, did you know that this happened to the candidate opposing Hugo Chavez in presidential elections in Venezuela?

. . . government loyalists turned up on motorcycles at an opposition rally in a slum in northern Caracas. In the skirmish that followed, Mr Chávez’s challenger, Henrique Capriles Radonski, narrowly avoided a bullet that wounded a supporter standing nearby.

None of this should come as a surprise.
