In honor of Hugo Chavez’s recent flurry of shuttle diplomacy and friendly visits, and the corresponding media circus and propaganda offensive against it, I feel inspired…to bring you satire. Since everyone from the stodgy old London Times to the wingiest of the wingnuts wants us to believe that Hugo Chavez is both a hopelessly inept buffoon and a force of Evil to be feared, I must oblige.

Hugo claims he’s ugly. Yeah, I can see why. I mean look at him, wearing camouflage. He must be trying to blend into the landscape so no one sees how hideous he is.
That grin scares the hell out of me. And who’s he pointing the finger at? Could he be giving someone the Evil Eye?

Run, Michelle! RUN!!! Don’t let the horrible fate of Cindy Sheehan befall you! Need I remind you that he chewed her ear off?
