Where did Hugo go? Is the Venezuelan strongman dying?

by editor on June 24, 2011

Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chávez hasn’t been seen in public since he was rushed into emergency surgery in Cuba two weeks ago. One can only hope he had the same team of ace surgeons who damn near killed Fidel Castro.

Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro: Two sick sons of bitches

The Wall Street Journal has the details:

Mr. Chávez has been in Cuba since June 8, when he was felled by a pelvic abscess for which he underwent an operation two days later. Soon after, Venezuelan officials said the flamboyant leader was in good health but would recuperate in Havana for a “few days.”

Those few days have stretched to 11, punctuated by false alarms over the date of his return. On Monday, a ruling party lawmaker said Mr. Chávez was hours from touching down in Caracas and urged his supporters to prepare a “tremendous” welcome for him. The claim was quickly refuted on the Twitter account of Venezuela’s Communications Minister Andres Izarra.

On Tuesday, Mr. Chávez made another virtual appearance. In a statement posted on Mr. Izarra’s Twitter account, he lamented the death of another Venezuelan official who had sought medical treatment in Cuba.

“We don’t know very much about [Chávez’s] health, there is no official news, only partial reports,” said Chávez critic Teodoro Petkoff, a former presidential candidate and current editor of the opposition newspaper Tal Cual.

In Cuba, he suffered acute pain during a meeting with former Cuban leader Fidel Castro and was rushed into surgery.

This is not an unusual situation. Over the years, many people have suffered acute pain after meeting with Fidel Castro. Many of them ended up dead after their heads accidentally sped into random bullets.

We’re sure you’ll join us in wishing Mr. Chavez a speedy return to the same sort of vigorous health enjoyed by the Venezuelan economy.

Any bets he ends up in a New York hospital because third world incompetents can’t fix something extremely simple?

And I hope its a bunch of “dem Joos” who patch him up.

I can only hope he assumes room temperature and is now starting his new career as worm food.

You know that you are in big trouble when you have to take an emergency flight to CUBA, known for its archaic medical practices , for medical treatment.
When Canadians go there for vacation and get sick they warn you not to seek medical help and wait until you get back home.

Maybe Hugo has been playing hide the weenie and got an infection from his boyfriend.

I was thinking Sean Penn or Oliver Stone got a little too amorous and bit him.

Hugo must have fallen for Michael More’s tale of how wonderful the Cuban health care system is, which proves that sometimes there is justice.

These 2 A-holes will live to about 100, if the old saying about the good dying young is true. Personally, I would love to see either 1 of them choke to death at a state dinner recorded on someones smart-phone. But that’s just me.
