CNN’s Chile affiliate: “Hugo Chavez esta muerto”. Google translation of the CNN Chile lead: “Guillermo Cochez Panamanian politician says the president of Venezuela is deceased. Contact with CNN Chile’s former ambassador said that since last December 30 President Chavez declared brain dead in Cuba, with which he returned to Venezuela in that state, and therefore it could not be visited by the various leaders who have visited, questioned and denied as the last picture that was published between Chavez and his daughters.”

That’s a tricky diagnosis with any politician. Really hard with a leftist.

Socialized medicine didn’t save him? I guess birth-control pills don’t work on pain and cancer… who knew?

I thought brain death was a sign of liberalism? You know one of their core values and beliefs? That is why they all look like the zombies from the walking dead.

Well, like Oprah says, there’s brain-dead and there’s dead-dead.

I am not one to rejoice in the death of any man, no matter how vile, but I sure as hell don’t feel bad for the little bastard.

Maybe I rejoiced just a little for bin Ladin, though.

This is a little off subject, but has anybody see those sickening ads that Joe Kennedy is doing for Citgo?

Couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy, no more pointers for “Dear Leader” either.

Well, apparently the “source” for this story despises Chavez, and may just be trolling Venezuela to produce Chavez and prove he isn’t dead. There is a creepy photo where Chavez is seen reading a sandpaper from 2/14. Interestingly though he is smiling his eyes are closed. All in all, it’s creepy. I will say this – in this picture he doesn’t look like a man who is wasting away from cancer. http://qz.com/57654/could-hugo-chavez-already-be-dead-we-have-reasons-to-doubt/

Well, my Daddy taught me – never trust a liar.

He looks like that picture was posed, could be brain dead.
