Michael Moore praised the Cuban health care system in his 2007 film “Sicko,” so we’ll anxiously await the tweet where he finds a way to blame the United States for Hugo Chavez’ death. Until then, Moore is offering to provide some balance to all the nasty coverage in the U.S. media, what with Chavez being remembered in the press as an “outsized personality,” a “masterful communicator” and a “hero to Venezuela’s poor.”

These next tweets sound best if you imagine “The Way We Were” playing quietly in the background.

Update:

“Free health and education for all” was enough to earn a retweet from former Obama cabinet member Van Jones.
