The Hugo Chavez death watch

Still no word from the Maximum Leader, but he’s said to be in critical condition. Me? I’m sticking with my story that he was inadvertently sent to the dissection lab at a veterinary hospital in Santiago de Cuba, where he starred in a lecture on the internal diseases of Sus scrofa domesticus.

Adam Bitely reports on the illness affecting both Chavez and his regime.


So, a guy with a parrot on his shoulder walks into the doctor’s office and the doctor says, “What seems to be your trouble?” and the parrot says, “Doc, I’ve got this huge wart on my ass…”

What irony, if Chavez, who still a relatively young man, should die before that mummified animated corpse, Fidel Castro.

Old Commies never go away, they just get an ailment. Hankies are being manufactured for the outpouring of grief. Sales are brisk, but there are reports that alcohol sales are up too.

By-the-way, am I hallucinating? Is Hugo's parrot wearing a beret?

Cancer is not something that I would wish upon anyone, but Hugo Chavez is not just anyone.

I have far more sympathy for Venezuela -- whatever happens to Chavez, that country is circling the drain.

Sic Semper Tyrannis, and Sic Transit Gloria Mundi too...

Strange juxtaposition: "Appointment With Danger", 1951
Alan Ladd as a Postal Inspector on the trail of killers. The bad guys? Joe Friday and Bill Gannon from "Dragnet"...

Well, Deborah, you know how they say some people and their pets start to look alike, in time.

Is it wrong to think that a lingering, incredibly painful downward slope to an excruciating death is appropriate here?

JXM: In the deepest, Christian sense, I suppose we should not wish that kind of fate on anybody; however, there are some whom we are not bound to, shall we say, lose an inordinate amount of sleep over, should they be overtaken by such a personal catastrophe.

What??? Who got the terminal cancer?? The parrot or this fascist thug called Hugo Chavez?? I hope the parrot is doing fine !!! So...

"In the deepest, Christian sense ..." would include a number of occasions when our Lord set a more muscular example, including His 'cleansing of the Temple'. If Snr Chavaz is to be worthy of 'Christian consideration', I would suggest that he should have considered his options several years ago.

... chap who kills his parents, then throws himself on the mercy of the Court because he is an orphan ...

Cheers

Good point, rinardman. In California, the women like to dress up their little bity dogs. Hugo had to get a parrot, because he couldn't get a Chihuahua to repeat, "Viva Hugo!"
