    They're all just taking sticks to poke the fat corpse and make sure it's properly kicked it.

    Mujica spouting his old commie nonsense again but this time to a willing audience I suspect.

    I loved the “Challenged by death we must bet for life and the best way to honour Chavez and ask for his health is to continue working from sun to sun for our peoples”, in other words – without him!

    And Mujica got turned down for a viewing of the corpse in situ!

    LOLs

    Seriously though, what is it with Chaves, that has leader after leader, flying to his bedside to see him and in her case, the second time in as many weeks. Is he really that much of a political influence in the region? I know he is in his own mind. I really did not think he was that big a player in South American politics.

    Chavez was (?) is (?) the secular prophet of a manufactured belief-system ... like Muhammed or Jesus in the religious province, some would say.
    What belief-system? He called it Bolivarism - not communism, not capitalism, not dictatorship, not democracy (perhaps best described by what it is not rather than what it is).
    As elsewhere in the history of the Continent, a powerful leader-turned-demagogue distributed largesse to the poor and this translated into votes.
    To the gullible Western eye, Votes = Democracy.
    How gullible; how sad.
