Bury him in a casket of recycled tin-pots...don't forget the 'Murican Flag while you're at it

After could we forget a friend?
Haiti's former dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, who ruled the impoverished Caribbean nation with an iron fist from 1971 until his ouster in 1986, died of a heart attack. He was 63.
'Baby Doc' was the "merit-based fetus" of 'Papa Doc' Duvalier who took power in 1971 at the age of 19 upon the death of his father. He was always good at staying on the good side of the nation that also supported his father -- usually by mentioning how nice that Castro fella seemed.

A better summary of this early template of Bill Kristol/Liz Cheney can be seen below:
“On Duvalier’s death, I’m thinking of the look in my mother’s eyes when she talks about her brother Joel, who was disappeared by that dictator,” Patrick Gaspard, the American ambassador to South Africa, who is Haitian-American, posted on Twitter on Saturday. “News of the passing of Duvalier makes me honor my father and generations of Haitians who resisted that vicious dictatorship.”

Pour one out for a staunch anti-communist, who racked up between $300 and $800 million through decades of graft, corruption, and selling the body parts of enemies killed by the Tonton Macoute, his family’s personal Praetorian Guard.

There’s gonna be a hot time in Hades tonite.

Speaking of Kristol Meth and Baby Dick, the Reaganist ideologues of the early 80s were all too enthusiastic to support any murderous dirtbag who could recite a spiel about hating communism, no questions asked.
