The timely demise of Hugo Chavez....at long last
Over at MSN this a.m. the headline read "Venezuelans stunned by Chavez cancer revelation".....yeah stunned and thrilled.
Thanks to Chavez being a brutal, murdering dictator, nationalizing foreign industries, and establishing a true socialist state in Venezuela, a nation that was once a wealthy breadbasket of South America has, in less than a generation, plunged into poverty, despair, and is the butt of jokes by free people the world over. After all if Sean Penn and Danny Glover are your friends, you know what a demented screw up you are.
Nobody knows what will happen when the devil mercifully comes to take Chavez away to hell at long last, but utter chaos created by a power vacuum in Venezuela would have to be better than what they have now. Here's hoping that Chavez' remaining days are short and uncomfortable.
