The benevolent dictator, remembered:

Hugo Chavez was a man of many talents: he played ball, sang songs, pulled out pistols, and got down and groovy – and that is precisely how we’ll remember the Venezuelan leader.

Since rising to power nearly two decades ago, Chavez always liked the spotlight. In 2006, he famously called former U.S. President George W. Bush the devil during a speech at the U.N. General Assembly and the last time rumors were spreading about his health, he invited a group of reporters to play baseball.

I’ll always remember him as the man who ruthlessly crushed his opposition with a song in his heart, and impoverished his people with the silent grace of a resting swan.

There’s even a slideshow at the link, if you can stomach it.

And the rush to be the first with the screenplay is on! It's just soooo easy to predict Oliver Stone with Sean Penn starring.

What else should we expect from Pravda-lite? More people at the HuffPo hate America than in any comparable mainstream organ in our history.
