Venezuela’s leftist dictator Hugo Chavez dead of cancer.
All the usual leftists are talking about how “his people” loved him. Well, not the political prisoners or the ones whacked in extrajudicial killings, but, you know, eggs, omelets, death squads. Stuff happens when you’re building a people’s republic.
Which might explain why he was the least popular leader in Latin America. (Though I doubt they do polling in Cuba. Is it too much to ask that Fidel Castro now die of a broken heart?)
But what I want to know is: Now that Hugo Chavez is dead, who will lead the Farm Workers Union?
