Farewell to Hugo Chavez. For a supposed adversary of the US, I just couldn’t manage to work up a lot of hatred for the guy. His new wave socialist, anti-American demagogic act coupled with relentless efforts to expand his executive power was about as tiresome as, well, Obama’s. Shit, Chavez was arguably less dangerous to the average American than Barack “Hellfire” Obama, the Nobel Peace Prize Winner who seemed to think that his authority to murder American citizens on US soil was a bit murky.
So out of pity, Chavez gets a thread. Glorify the people’s revolution and the fearless leader with music of:
1. Useful Idiots. Whatever comes to mind when you think of the likes of Sean Penn and Cindy Sheehan (warning: reading this link will make you taste vomit).
2. Ambition and Legends in Their Own Minds. Those who desire much more than their capabilities can manage.
3. Axis of Evil. You’re a narcissistic asshole and all your friends are immoral fucks.
Rand Rant Bonus: Celebrate one man’s speech that stopped missiles with words. A bump in the road to transforming the US into a banana republic, but a win for the Constitution nonetheless. Look for songs with spoken word portions, preferably badass and truthy in nature. Elvis was a great source of these.
