Sunday’s Indianapolis 500 will see the Brickyard debut of Venezuelan racer (and Hugo Chavez supporter) Milka Duno:

Duno makes no attempt to distance herself from Chavez. Most notably, she spoke at one of his massive campaign rallies last October, talking about the importance of education and praising presidential programs that have largely wiped out illiteracy in the South American nation. At the end of her speech, the two embraced on the stage.

They embraced? The SMH will be jealous.

“In my country, you see the government trying to help people that have low income, that have no resources,” Duno said this week during an interview in her garage. “They help people to get an education. We have free education. Everyone in Venezuela has access to go to school, to go to the university, for free. They don’t have to pay anything. This is good.”

And don’t the people love it. In fact, those attempting to leave Venezuela are moving almost as quickly as Duno herself:

Duno crashed in practice and slipped into the field with the second-slowest speed (219.228 mph). She will start from the next-to-last row Sunday.

    1. Chavez at his last appearance at the UN said he could smell the sulfur – taken as a slur on Bush, who spoke 24 hours earlier. In that venue, with so many usurpers talking out of their arses, the smell of sulfur would be permanent.

    1. I know I’m supposed to be thinking about Venezuelan wierdos, but I keep thinking back to the post about what chick bombs get. Anyone notice the entire world of the musselmen gives off a 70’s vibe?

      So, let me get this straight.  Musselmen try to personally groom their young men like wookies and send their female faithful to Fantasy Island to be served by De Plane! De Plane! guy. Seventy two horrid little midgets getting you virgin mai-tais, ‘cause I’m sure they ain’t got spirits in their afterlife either. Why couldn’t they have given the girls 72 pool boys? You know, the sad Guatemalan one you have to lovingly teach the lingo to so he can call his sick mom, one Swedish one who –ooops- keeps droppink his svimmink trunks in virlpool zingie when he’s cleaning, etc. Talk about armies of faithful women bombers.

    1. Loathe as I am to go O/T, but that douchebag Hicks and family are playing the victim card a mite too early.

      Here’s Terry Hicks after visiting him in prison.
      “David has certainly indicated that he’s not interested in appeals and everything else like that – he just wants to go through the (jail) system and get on with his life, that is what he wants to do. I think the political issues have been used up now. David was pretty much used as a political football for five years, and even now this issue I think was still dealt with the wrong way round. We wear that, David wears it and we just get on with life. It has been a long fight … we just wanted to have him back here, he’s back in South Australia and he’s back in his home town and that is what we wanted.”

      No dickhead, he wanted to part of an eternal Caliphate that killed all those who failed to convert to the death-cult. He got caught short, and should never have been sold by the Northern Alliance to the US. He deserved to die ignominously in the foothills of northern Afghanistan, fighting with his beloved Tellytubbies.

    1. Completely O/T, but just got back from my initial recruitment session and passed all the tests etc there- they’re pushing me into the RAAF, in logistics or ops. Still have to pass the medical etc but it’s less stringent than the army, and I’m more likely to be able to bugger off to Baghdad with the flyboys, even though I won’t get to drop explodey things on naughty people at this stage. I’m going to try for flight crew still.

      Andrea, I await your chastisement.

    1. I don’t even watch the crapwagons, and yet even I know Duno is the biggest joke in the IRL, (which is a joke itself). She’s astonishingly slow, but she doesn’t let that stop her from constantly crashing and posing a danger to her others.

      Her sheet stupidity, incompetence and the deranged outright menace she presents make her racing career the ideal vehicular representation of Chavez’ Glorious New Venezuela.

      Congratulations, and good luck, I reckon we probably won’t bump into each other (I’ve just been lit up to go away again), but just remember, those of us in the PBI don’t really hate the RAAF.
      And I have never personally said “RAAF, Rarely Around After Four”.
      Well, maybe once or twice. 🙂

      Back O/T:

      I Googled up some images of Milka Duno….yes, she is a hottie, but it sounds like she’s a poor driver as well.  The only way she’d place well in the Indie 500 is if it took place somewhere in Venezuela.  Then socialist rules, as written by Chavez, would apply.

      Cool. I’ve always wondered why women aren’t more populous amongst the pro driver set. Afterall, driving isn’t demanding of great physical strengh.

      A body’d only have to have good driving skills, good coordination and an inherent need to dominate those around them. Except for the driving skills, women seem a natural.

      Theres a few uses for the grommets, infections are the usual reason most kids get them. Mines nerve damage so not much can be done.
      From memory grommets have a bad habit of falling out.

    1. Frollicking, thanks
      I think in the kids the grommits are supposed to fall out eventually – when the eustachian tubes are clear. My doc thinks it’s just eustachian trouble.
      My brother has bony growths (I always knew he was a bone-head), anyway it’s called otosclerosis, but my GP thinks mine’s just eustachian tubes). I’m sick of not hearing stuff very well, and it annoys my friends, they get sick of telling me stuff two and three times. I have to be able to see the mouth of the person talking and that fills in a lot of the missing bits.
      Working for Telecom for years probably didn’t help, on the phones.
