My coup runneth over

This ought to be good.

Venezuelan Marxist Moonbat in Chief Hugo Chavez claims now that Oliver Stone is to make a movie based on the 2002 coup that briefly ousted Chavez from power. Chavez, of course, claims the coup to have been backed by Washington, a fantasy dismissed by all but the most hard-core of the tinfoil hat brigade.

Assuming the claim is true, and given Stone's political sentiments, I make the following predictions:
  • Chavez will be portrayed as a great leader and hero of the people
  • America, and particularly Bush, will be presented as the most devious of villains
  • The film will affirm the Washington-backed coup meme
  • Everyone in Hollywood and at the Cannes and Sundance film festivals will be lining up to personally fellate Stone before bestowing best film honors on him
