Either way, one thing is for sure: Iran’s president believes Hugo Chávez’s stature is such that he’ll be returning on “resurrection day” with religious figures Mahmoud believes are Islam’s allies — even if they’re not.
Upon learning of ‘commandante’ Chávez’s demise, Penn was quoted as saying “Today the people of the United States lost a friend it never knew it had. And poor people around the world lost a champion.” Evidently, the Academy Award winner is unaware that the American people already have someone implementing “socialism for the 21st Century.”
Yet, even after all that, Chávez insisted on going back to Cuba for a third surgery. That type of allegiance can only be likened to Americans going through a disastrous first term with Barack Obama and then, rather than refusing further treatment, inviting the Mad Dr. O to continue administering high doses of the wrong medicine for another four years.
