WE’LL SEE ABOUT THAT: The Varianzas polling agency says Hugo Chavez lost the election in Venezuela today. And Chavez says he’ll respect the result once the ballots are counted. But don’t pop any champagne corks just yet. The ballots haven’t been counted. We don’t know for sure if they’ll even be counted at all.
UPDATE: Chavez reportedly “won.” I don’t want to come across as excessively skeptical with the quotation marks, but the man does want to be the next Fidel Castro.
