What is it that endears such a foul-mouthed pig to so many on the left? The man is a dictator who has terrified his people into submission. The Venezuelan poor (already the poorest in South America) are worse off than they were before this bully won and now, on top of that, they're terrified of his regime too. His relationships with Assad and Ahmadinejad ought to have given him away but, no, the loons on the left see this guy as somehow even messianic. If that word were the combination of "messy" and "maniac", it would make sense.
