Vultures of a feather flock together

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Alexander Lukashenko

Alexander Lukashenko of Belarus and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran pay their final respects to Hugo Chavez

When two of the world's worst dictators show up at your funeral and stand at attention by your casket,  and receive loud cheers, you've got to admit that you belong to a very special club.  Yeah.

And when other dictators and Latrine American buffoons show up too, you've got to admit that this club of yours might be a branch office of Hell.  Really. For sure.

Ahmadinejad received loud cheers from the crowd, and so did Raul Castro.  Prince Felipe of Spain was booed.  Accustomed to disrespect --especially in the colonies-- the Prince of Asturias endured the three-hour funeral, but refused to stay for Nicolas Maduro's inauguration as president.

Sean Penn was there too, naturally.  But his presence was eclipsed by that of over 30 heads of state.  Tough club, you have to admit, if an Oscar winner blends in with the furniture.

Ahmadinejad went over the top, saying: “I have no doubt he [Chavez] will come again along with all the righteous people and the Prophet Jesus and the only successor of the righteous generation, the perfect human.”

    Latrine America [and them some] out in full force! Lovely.

    The photos, with their seedy, lowlife, cheesy posturing and cheap melodrama, speak volumes. There is no dignity or sincerity here, only expediency, self-seeking, opportunism and, perhaps, an element of delusion. These are not heads of state, except technically. They are really latrine denizens, and not just “Hispanic” ones. None of them really gives a shit about Chávez, only about themselves, their interests and the promotion thereof, whether it’s by dressing up in the Venezuelan flag, feigning proletarian grief, or talking utterly absurd rubbish. But yes, it’s all very appropriate and fitting, considering the corpse.

    Interesting how the Cuban despot LOOKS relatively more, uh, professional than a number of the other ones.

    So where's the child molester? Too disconsolate to attend?

  • asombra

    And WTF is Lukashenko doing with that little boy?

  • asombra

    Spain should have sent its Foreign Minister, not the heir to the throne. I hope he took a bath after the proceedings.

  • asombra

    Wait, is that Evo's wife or his mother? And Maduro looks like a TOTAL idiot.

  • Carlos Eire

    Maybe Raul is the only one of those cretins who can afford an Armani suit and a necktie, or maybe he's the only one who dares to display his wealth. As for Lukashenko, it looks as if he wanted this boy to be scarred for life.

    What does Penn have on his head? A beret? A yarmulke? Asshole.

  • asombra

    Cretina looks like Alicia Alonso's daughter. Yikes.

    Carlos, maybe Ratso is better packaged because gays are better at that sort of thing.

    Carlos, You overlooked ambulance-chasing Jesse Jackson.
