Hugo Chavez Has Left the Building
Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez is dead, age 58.
Our ever graceless Harper greeted the news with apparent delight. “At this key juncture, I hope the people of Venezuela can now build for themselves a better, brighter future based on the principles of freedom, democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights.”
Harper capo John "Back Door" Baird tried to sneak into Venezuela to stir things up but scurried to safety at the last moment.
Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird was to have travelled to Venezuela two weeks ago but the trip was abruptly cancelled because Chavez made an unexpected homecoming from Cuba.
Baird had been scheduled to hold meetings with government counterparts and other opposition representatives as part of a six-country tour of Latin America.
Maybe the lard-arsed duo should compare their numbers in our last federal election to the vote Chavez won in his. Of course that's not important to Harper's notion of democracy and freedom.
