Rodent Kill

A recent item in the New York Times celebrates how "A Satirical Site Skewers Chávez and Politics" in Venezuela. El Chigüire Bipolar or "The Bipolar Capybara" doesn't seem as subversive -- or as original -- as the Times represents it to be. The first webisode of their anti-Chávez Flash animated series makes relatively predictable jokes about alcohol use and gags that pander to homophobia. And a lot of the other material is characterized by bad Photoshop and predicable editorial cartoons.
