    Anyone who believes that Chavez is still alive?

    I’ve got some prime land in Florida for sale. Call me.

    When Stalin had his massive stroke, all the Politburo members with him left him on the floor while they debated what to do – for hours. Finally somebody called a doctor just in case he eventually woke up but luckily it was too late.

    Whether Chavez has assumed room temperature or is being kept alive by machine matters little. His room in Hell will still be warm when he gets there.

    There may be upheaval for a period, but Venezuela has borne the pain of this scoundrel long enough, brighter days are ahead.
