Chavez death watch.
Caracas Chronicles ^ | 31 Dec. 2012 | Juan Cristabol Nagal

Posted on 12/31/2012 4:31:05 PM PST by WellyP

The next few days are full of uncertainty, but there are a few things I know.

1. Whatever we do, however much we restrain ourselves, as much as we show respect for the passing of the President, chavistas will cut and paste the few signs of happiness (I’m looking at you, Plaza Altamira) and play them over and over again, saying the opposition is happy, dancing in the street.

2. The funeral will be massive. Presidents will fly in from all over – Belarus, Iran, all over Latin America. There will be celebrities galore – Sean Penn, Danny Glover, etc. The military will be in full regalia. It will be an apotheosis like nothing we have ever seen.

3. The election will be called, and it will be held sooner than we think.

4. The country’s economy will not collapse in the meantime. We will go into the election facing very similar conditions to the ones we faced in October. The fiscal spigot still has life in it.

5. The Chávez girls will begin playing a larger role in public life, a la Sonia Gandhi.

Not sure exactly what is happening at this point but it looks like the end of Chavez could be very near.

Sorry, but until and unless he passes, I will still think of that line from Godfather II:

He’s been dying from the same heart attack for 20 years.

I am shocked that anyone would profess glee over this poor man's imminent demise.

That said, I got a twenty on 5 January, a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge, and some leftover fireworks unboxed. It's how my people mourn.

I sure hope Hillary pulls through, I don’t think that the world could survive the death of a dictator and a leftist liberal from Venezuela at the same time.

Maybe Fidel would be kind enough to accompany his dear friend. It would bring on quite a celebration to have Fidel and Hugo shuffle off their mortal coils hand in hand.

The short line will be the one with all the foreign communists paying their respects to their departed comrade. The longer line will be the one with all the Venezuelans waiting to pi$$ on his grave.

A few weeks back, I said it would really make it a Happy New Year if Hugo Chavez finally took the big dirt nap and assumed room temperature. This IS good news. See ya, Hugo.

Not a postulation. Posted by request of someone else on the thread. Hugo is like the mean ol’ grandaddy with a ton of cash who’s been “dying” forever. I’ll believe he’s kaput when I hear Sean Penn has delivered the eulogy.

Will obammy attend his buddy’s funeral?

Will Joe (the drunk)Biden attend and embarass us AGAIN??
