But this story sent over today by reader OS (thank you) made me laugh. Venezuelan residents in Miami decided to boo the dude every time he was at bat while playing for his national team because he supported Chávez in the recent referendum....did a video or something. That made me laugh. Y'see, in the pretzel logic of Miami latinos, a man who represents his country at sports is a traitor because he sides with...errr...the majority of his own citizens. And the people who abandon their own home country and take residence in the USA are justified in ranting things like; "He should be expelled!" in the Washington Post.
It's one of those funny kinks of reality that the US actually believes that Latino residents in Miami provide a representative voice of their peoples. Untrue. Miami Latinos are just a bunch of people who don't have the guts and want all the glory.
