CommentsExcellent article, Daniel! The possibilities you ponder in such a satirical yet realistic way are refreshing. Rarely do I find such wit, Real Politik, and satire in political commentaries.

The Murderer, Hugo Chavez.

Tin Pot Socialism. That's the South American way. Use an old election to get you there, then pull the rug out from under the people to stay there.
Where's the condemnation of the Hollywood Socialist Jet Set like Sean Penn. Where's the public displays of verbal garbage coming out of their mouths about "for the people". Where's the stand up and be heard. Nope, nothing. Once in power, hold power at all cost. So Sean, what is the difference between a Tin Pot from Pol Pot. About ten million dead I guess. Supporting a South American Pol Pot is what Sean Penn is about. Cry me a river NDP types out there, you too are no different than Scruff Daddy Chavez. He too talked about the wonderful world of socialism, but in the end, the gun really separates the true believer from tyrant. And socialist seem to have this uncanny inability to give up power once taken either at the ballot box or at the end of a gun.

Get Well?? No! Die you filthy Marxist scumbag, DIE!!
His death is always said to leave a vacuum that could cause someone worse to take Chavez's' place. But I have faith in the people of that country to make sure that they don't get TWO Chavez's. One was bad enough. They understand they've got their work cut out for them to undo all that Chavez has done, just like all the damage that Obama has done to this nation along with the Socialist Democrat Party. Led by Nancy Pelosi who is a member of the Socialist Democrat Party herself along with Barney Frank have shoved America to the edge of a cliff we've never been as close to in the history of this nation. If Michele Bachmann becomes President the first thing she needs to do is all that she knows conservatives in this country hold near and dear to their hearts, and that we've been yelling about in the face of the liberals since their dear leader was elected. Like sealing the border, dismantling the TSA and instituting Israeli like security measures, embracing Israel again as we always have that Obama just didn't understand how to do as a Marxist who is a heavy supporter of Muslim terrorism even to go so far as to support its institution right here in America. Chavez get well, not hardly. But, you know, there are Cuban doctors who took their training in America and are good doctors, especially since they get most of their support from right here in America. They might mess up and actually keep him alive like they have that walking corps Fidel!

Daniel, Have you ever noted the facial expressions and body language of various dictators including Chavez?
Take notice of the two faces of Obama and tell me what you see.

Get Well, Hugo

Even if Hugo Chavez is dead, his brother Adan Chavez has vowed to use force to stay in power
Reports say that Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez may be seriously ill. In Dictatorspeak, seriously ill means seriously dead. And seriously dead, means there’s a revolution coming up shortly. But whether Hugo Chavez is dead, sick or just vacationing in Cuba for his health—there’s no reason for him to feel down.
Even if Hugo Chavez is dead, his brother Adan Chavez has vowed to use force to stay in power. And that is the true socialist way. If you can’t win an election or keep your strongman seated upright on his throne without stuffing him full of hay, then bring out the army and show the rabble who’s really in charge. Nothing proves you’re a man of the people like ruling through armed force.More...
