Chavez Post Mortem: Mummifying the Ghost

mad

Letting go of your mentor is hard to do, especially when you have no charisma of your own.  

Since the corpse of Hugo Chavez can't be mummified, due to its mishandling in Castrogonia, quasi-president Nicolas 'Saddamito" Maduro has taken to invoking the dead man's name more frequently than the hesychast monks on Mount Athos ever  invoked the name of Jesus.

According to the website www.madurodice.com -- which keeps track of Maduro's public statements --the quasi-president of Venenozuela has mentioned the name of Hugo Chavez at least 3.456 times in the past sixteen days, about an average of 200 times each day.

The website also calculates that Maduro's invocations of the sacred name of  Chavez have been prefaced with the title of "comandante" about an average of 100 times a day.
