The no-neck demagogue Hugo Chávez will be installed in a glass tomb à la Mao, Lenin and Ho Chi Minh.
A state funeral was held yesterday in Caracas. Attending was Cuban co-dictator Raul Castro, Iranian despot and Jew-hater Ahmadinejad and a couple of U.S. politicos, both Democrats.
No surprise there, eh?
There were 33 heads of state in all. Obama would have gone, but he had previously scheduled two rounds of golf with aging terrorist Bill Ayers.
Venezuelan Vice President Maduro, who now runs the show in that benighted nation, said, “We have decided to prepare the body of our comandante president … so that it remains open for all time … just like Ho Chi Minh, just like Lenin, just like Mao.”
Hugo’s corpse will be displayed in a “crystal urn.” Oh, my!
Rumor has it that a Learjet carrying Sean Penn, George Clooney and Matt Damon vanished in the Bermuda Triangle en route to Caracas, but that has not been confirmed. Perhaps it’s wishful thinking.
