Turn back the clock, let's all root for Baby Doc
Turn back the clock, let's all root for Baby Doc
We won't shiver and we won't quiver,
We'll all give Baby Doc our nice brown liver.

This is the chant that is being sung throughout Haiti by the supporters of Jean-Claude Duvalier. Duvalier is the former dictator of Haiti who was overthrown by a popular uprising in 1986. Upon his overthrow, Duvalier fled to France where he remained until returning to Haiti in January of this year.

During his reign Duvalier was known to torture Haitian citizens, dabble in the drug trade and sell the body parts of dead citizens. He, also, embezzled a whole lot of money as well as playing first base for the Haitian national baseball team.

Baby Doc always claimed that he was a much better baseball player than Fidel Castro, a claim that was supported by all of his team mates. Honestly, would you expect them to say anything else?

Baby Doc is currently facing possible charges for embezzlement. Apparently, murder, torture and selling body parts are not crimes in Haiti. Neither is being a lousy baseball player.

Baby Doc has expressed an interest in going into Haitian politics so he can help the country, most likely, by embezzling the rest of the country's money.

Oddly, a lot of people in Haiti don't seem to have a problem with this.

Baby Doc vows the first thing he will do when elected, is take back his first base position on the Haitian national baseball team.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
