Some right-wingers may sincerely have had a well-founded, deep-rooted loathing of Chavez, and may have actually been able to write in detail about his failings and their impact on Venezuelans. I can’t name any right-wingers who fit that description, however….I repeat: No one on the right hated Hugo Chavez. No one on the right gave a crap about him. No one on the right gives a crap about Venezuela. Every word ever uttered or published on the right about Chavez is part of the right’s war against American leftists, liberals, and Democrats — nothing more.
Not that I come to praise Chavez, but… this is true.
