According to various media outlets, the Venezuelan tyrant has died:

Of course, reports of Chavez’s death have been greatly exaggerated before, so it’s not a bad idea to take these reports with a grain of salt.
We will continue to monitor this story as it develops.
The reports appear to be true. Sean Penn is sobbing in a fetal position somewhere:

We really need to give Sean Penn his space here for a few days—

I know you are not supposed to celebrate when others die, but if it's someone like Osama, Chavez or Arafat, you get a free pass—

On the 60th anniversary of the death of Stalin, Chavez joined him in Hell. Never say G-d has no sense of irony.—

A moment of silence Hugo Chavez. OK, I spent my moment picturing you enjoying hell, jackass.—

Chavez had been treated for cancer in Cuba. Guess that was a bust, huh?
Bad day for the Cuban National Health services PR office.—

Yeah, Michael Moore must be catatonic right now. Maybe he and President Obama can comfort one another:
Let’s hope this will mean a brighter future for the Venezuelan people.
Let’s hope so.
God help Venezuela & its people, may this begin a road towards true democracy & freedom for the Venezuela and all Latin America—
