When Chávez passed, I remarked that the script of his funeral must have been written in North Korea…albeit with editing in Havana. Given Maduro’s previous denunciation of an alleged CIA plot to kill his election opponent Governor Henrique Capriles (DUR-Miranda), it now appears that the draft script went through revisions in Teheran as well.
The reason for Chavez’ selection of Maduro as his successor should now be clear to all. Next to this guy (also known among detractors as Fat Borat), Chávez looks like a Churchillian statesman. Pure. Comedy. Gold.
