President Barack Obama has received the endorsement of an important fellow head of state, whom he has called “mi amigo”:

    Meanwhile, Romney scored a big endorsement from Madonna, who threatened to strip naked if Obama is elected.

    I think the kids today would call this “trolling” on the part of Mr Chavez.

      Maybe. But I can think of absolutely no reason not to regard this as Mr. Chavez’s sincere opinion. It’s consistent with his previous comments and his overall worldview.
