Everything you want to know about El Ché, saviour of the world, pardon me, saviour of the Universe

El Ché, that wonderful Argentinian star of the college merchandise and apparel, was also an important figure on the Cuban Revolution. And Humberto Fontova did the reseach y'all need to study so you can meet the real Ernesto "Ché" Guevara, far different from that "motorcycle diaries" guy. Watch the video here. (h/t to Kate for this link).

Chavez, in the meantime, is remembering el Ché's death anniversary, swifting his Bolivar quotes in his speeches and newspaper ads to Ché Guevara ones. Lovely. This is the point of view of Darwin, the Venezuelan cartoonist, about it:

Ché says, "How smashing! You are so terrible with the hammer", and Marx replies, "Ha ha, and you, always the bloodthirsty"... we all know who is the guy in the center...

From this article: "Ms. Guevara is in fact a pediatrician and mother of two who favors pantsuits over military fatigues. She resembles a Cuban soccer mom more than a revolutionary."

A Cuban soccer mom?? Are there soccer moms in Cuba?
