Uh, Oh, Here Comes Hugo Chavez, Holding Up Books in Front of the Cameras Again

Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez holds a miniature copy of his country's constitution as he speaks during a news conference after the National Electoral Council (CNE) announced the results of state and city elections in Caracas, early Monday, Nov. 24, 2008. Chavez's allies won a majority in Venezuela's local elections, but the opposition made important gains, capturing the Caracas mayor's office and two of the most populous states.

OK: WARNING! I totally don't know about what's going on in Venezuela, so you best look for the "story" elsewhere; I just think Hugo Chavez is funny. Don't you? I do. And I love that he has this thing for waving books around, spokemodel-stylee, at the podium. It's so fun! You know what would be totally, totally fun? If Chavez did his speeches while holding up and tossing aside the cue cards, like in that Bob Dylan video thing. Ha, ha! Oh, Hugo, you ARE a lot of fun, but you could be way more funner.

With his mini-constitution, he'slike the Dennis Kucinich of South America. Without the smokin' hot wife.

Look out kid
Don't matter what you did
Walk on your tip toes
Don't try "No Doz"
Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don't need a weather man
To know which way the wind blows

I've loved him ever since he said the podium smelled like sulphur after Bush had just spoken.

Are we sure that's a tiny book, or has Hugo gigantisized? Is he now Hugeo Chavez? Did Ursula's resignation prompt this?

Can there be only one?
