So there's the expected orgy of liberal Seriousness going on about the death of Hugo Chavez. I would merely point out that a lot of the self-same people who recently spoke out against privilege are now lecturing Venezuelans about their late president and what is best for their country. Perhaps they should pause and think it over.
Update: See anti-privilege warrior Cord Jefferson for the Platonic form of this sort of thing.
Update II: The spasm of Chavez coverage, in the next few days, is going to be absolutely hilarious. You're going to get such nakedness, such purity, in what people actually are, when push comes to shove.
