Honduran Congress will decide on Zelaya “after the election”

Ruling on Zelaya ‘after election’

Congress in Honduras will not vote on whether to restore ousted President Manuel Zelaya until after elections this month, a senior lawmaker said.

Congressional president Jose Alvedro Saavedra said Congress would meet in early December to decide if Mr Zelaya will be allowed to serve out his term.

Zelaya of course is in a snit,

Mr Zelaya warned last weekend that he would not return to the presidency if Congress voted to restore him after the elections. He said doing so would legitimise his removal from office in June.

His term of office is due to end in January.

In the meantime, Zelaya remains cooped up with his teddy bear in the tin-foil lined room so that brain-altering radiation won’t get to him:

His followers, however, are deserting the sinking ship of the Brazilian Embassy. What’s even more interesting is that so are the journalists.

    An excerpt from La Gringa
    Deserting the sinking ship and other news
    “That is an attitude that I hear from many Hondurans: “This is OUR country. We will select OUR president and we really don’t give a flip what any other country thinks about it.”
    Way to go Honduras! Tell em to shove it!

    That Teddy Bear seems remarkably like this one. Well, if you close one eye and squint.

    Pat,
    That’s what the teddy bear looks like when he’s not in front of the cameras. And notice the resemblance with Z’s clothes, too.
    Bwahahahahah!
