Via an email alert:
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, the charismatic socialist whose "Bolivarian Revolution" reduced poverty in his country and galvanized anti-American sentiment across Latin America, died today. He was 58.
For the latest information go to www.latimes.com.
He was battling cancer.
At least his voice isn't that bad. Via Wonkette.
Mystik is an exclusive engine oil sponsor for the 2010 Iron Dog Snowmobile Race and a sponsor of Team #22 Scott Davis and Todd Palin – past Iron Dog Champions.
"So what?" I hear some of you mumbling. "Big deal," I detect from afar. "Now what goofy name is Laffy gonna come up with for Sarah Palin?" I suspect you may be thinking.

See? It was worth wading through that rinkydink ad just to witness Lubey McHypocrite step in it one more time.
Just what we need more of in the U.S. Senate. What an attractive record:
Former Sen. Dan Coats (R-IN), who wants to challenge Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN) for his old Senate seat, "lobbied for a Texas-based oil and gas company that partnered with Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez," Politico reports.
The Hotline notes Coats has also "spent the past several years advocating on behalf of pharmaceutical companies, major health care firms and big corporations."
How can someone be a "wimpy little man-child" and a dictator at the same time? Oh, that's right, if it's Rush, it doesn't have to make sense. Via Media Matters.
