Hugo Chavez, may he rest in peace

So, another one bites the dust. Hugo Chavez has moved from a state of living to a state of not living. We’re not sure if he is in Catholic Heaven or Southern Baptist Hell. Either way, he can’t be happy since all of his enemies are still alive.

What? Our sarcasm is coming too soon? Keep in mind that this dude courted some of the worst dictators on the planet. We do get the thumbing of his nose at the United States. Sure, our foreign policies often range from inept to horrible. But demonizing the U.S. didn’t lead to anything good, so basically he was a rabble rouser, and Venezuelans were no better off under his oppressive rule. All he did was shift corruption by name from capitalism (if you could call it that) to socialism (if you could call it that).

By the way, do you remember his infamous U.N. speech? President George Bush had been at the pulpit the day before to address the delegations. When Chavez came up to the podium, he said: “”The devil came here yesterday, and it smells of sulfur still today.” Ah, snap!

The statement was obviously in poor taste. And it even rankled Charlie Rangel. The leftist congressman, ever the critic of President Bush, was still appalled. He said: “You don’t come into my country; you don’t come into my congressional district and you don’t condemn my president.” Ah, double snap!

Incidentally, that experience at the United Nations is actually what led to his premature death. George Bush’s radioactive satanic emissions were what caused Chavez’s cancer and ultimately his demise. Will the killing never end, Dread Demon Lord George?!

Anyway, the King is Dead. Long Live the King. Hugo Chavez hand picked his successor, Nicolas Maduro, to run the country. Apparently, we can expect more of the same.

  1. Congratulations for breaking the news! Seriously, before CNN or BBC , I actually found out thru your site first. So that’s kinda cool I think. Also keep up the dark humor, I personnally like it. 🙂

    1. Thank you kindly. Yeah, we had to report on it. Hugo has gotten stuck in our teeth way too often. We lived in Venezuela years ago and it’s a shame that such a beautiful and robust country has yet to get a fair shake in political representation on either end of the spectrum.
