(Reuters) – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s adoring supporters prayed and wept on Tuesday over a serious setback in his battle against a cancer that threatens to end his 14-year rule of the South American OPEC member.
“There is so much sadness and confusion,” said one die-hard “Chavista,” Marisol Aponte, a community worker in the slums of Caracas, her voice choking with emotion. “But we must be strong and put into practice all that he has taught us.”
Yeah. Murder, state-sponsored theft, economic collapse, all the usual horsemen that come riding with commie dictators like him.
So choke on it. The taste of your tears is sweet, sweet, sweet. As is the contemplation of Hugo Chaves dying slowly and in unbearable agony.
