Live on Hello President – the most popular TV show in all Venezuela! – Hugo Chavez interviews Fidel Castro:

Castro: I always knew I would end up on Hello President.

Chavez: Now we broadcast daily.

Castro: No. [Words inaudible. Laughter]

    1. Hello President? Wouldn’t Adiós, Presidente get better ratings?

    1. It was Rich Little doing Castro.

    1. I always knew I would end up on Hello President.

      Well sure, you’ve got your buddy taking over all the media in Venezuala, so of course you would.

    1. “Chavez: I forget numbers but not that much.”

      Quiet.  Rocket scientist at work.

    1. Great. Just what I needed to read this am. The world’s two premier Marxists giving each other nuncupative blow jobs. Gack.

    1. And then later on they dial phone numbers at random and ask people, “Is your refrigerator running?”
      When they say “Yes” they then yell “Well, it wouldn’t in MY country!”.

    1. Hmm. Evidently they haven’t quite mastered the art of the ole ‘plausible laugh track’ bit. Unless the audience is laughing at the fact that impending food shortages in Venezuela make the chances of a daily broadcast for the forseeable future ever more remote.

    1. Jeez, you guys, get a room.

    1. Damn.  For a minute I though CL was blogging again.  But alas, the link hasn’t been updated for months.

      Heartless eco-monster.

    1. Do you think their routine is scripted or ad-libbed?

    1. From that, one can see how willingly Chavez would take “advice” from Castro…on all fours.

    1. That wasn’t Iowahawk, was it?

    1. Taking advantage of the short time we have left. Time cannot be overlooked. In my opinion, we have limited time.

      From Castro’s lips to Chavez’s ears.  Enjoy it while you can, you wastes of skin.

    1. Why not rename it Those Wacky Wops, and sell it to Fox? It’d rate like billy-o.

      (Or to pitch it to Eddie McGuire, how about Who Wants To Be A Dictator?)

    1. Cubans can’t query that sick mind and ask for another to run the place.

      Venezualans can but won’t. But when they wake up…..

    1. OT: The only link is common thuggery and theft:

      MIDDLE EASTERN crime Ring in Oz:
      ““The quantities of cash located during operation Schoale are huge and are indicative of the scale of the proceeds of drug crime,” he said.

      “I am particularly alarmed that several semi and automatic weapons were discovered during the execution of these search warrants. It is a great concern to me that these individuals are heavily armed.”

      Police today displayed the cash at a press conference to announce the successful raids. The cash-laden boxes were so heavy that two officers struggled to lift them. “”

      Gosh, you mean these good citizens failed to hand in their ‘goldplated’ and other illegal weapons in the John Howard Amnesty?

      A remarkably naive observation by the police since the guns were only guarding $11 million in drug cash!

    1. #8 Kyda. I just had to look up nuncupative. Gack! indeed.

    1. ¡Hola Presidente!
      It’s Fresh! It’s Whacky!
      You’ll Laugh Your Head Off!
      But If You Don’t, We’ll Crush Your Toes With a Hammer! Fun For the Whole Family!
