How many more Messiahs?

This is the cover of Tal Cual today, and I just love it!!!  The title in Spanish is "¿Hasta Cuando Mesias?"  Another case of pictures worth a thousand words.  And of course you know who is missing....  and you wonder how long it will take his PSF supporters to come to grips with it....

  1. Chavez will be confounded by this photo montage. If Fidel is there, shouldn't Hugo be there?

    I guess their definition of "messiah" is a bit different than my definition ...

    Interesting to put pictures of Gallego Francisco Franco next to son-of-Gallego Fidel Castro. From Georgie Ann Geyer’s biography of Fidel Castro, Guerrilla Prince:

    To many people it seemed "natural" that Castro and Franco would have hated each other; one was a Communist, the other was a Fascist Falangist who had defeated the classic Marxist threat in the Spanish Civil War and then ruled his country with the iron hand of a Catholic caudillo. But such neat ideological classifications most often lie. As a matter of fact, the two twentieth-century strongmen with nineteenth-century roots in Galicia had been filled with admiration for each other for each other. They had yearned to meet, and when Franco died, Castro decreed a full week of official mourning in Cuba. There had been hints of their "odd caudillo" relationship.

    Franco never participated in the American embargo of Cuba…. As a matter of fact, the two twentieth-century strongmen with nineteenth-century roots in Galicia had been filled with admiration for each other for each other. Even in the very first year of the Revolution, when the Cuban ambassador to Madrid, Jose Miro Cardona, met with Franco, he reported to friends that the austere little Spanish generalfsimo at the end had asked him, "How is Fidel doing?" Then Franco told him, his voice rising, 'Tell Fidel to give hell to the Americans!"

2) Your post will appear if you follow the following rules. I will be ruthless in erasing any comment that do not follow these rules, as well as those who replied to that off rule comment.

3)COMMENT RULES:
Do not be repetitive.
Do not bring grudges and fights from other blogs here (this is the strictest rule).
This is an anti Chavez blog, with more than 95% anti Chavez readers that have made up their minds long ago. Thus trying to prove us wrong is considered a troll. Still, you are welcome as a chavista to post,> in particular if you want to explain us coherently as to why chavismo does this or that. We are still waiting for that to happen once.
Insults and put downs are frowned upon and I will be sole judge on whether to publish them.
