From bad to the bizarre in Venezuela

If you thought that Hugo Chávez’s heart as in the right place even if the execution of his policies in Venezuela was deeply flawed, a recent piece in Foreign Policy is not going to make you change your mind. Juan Nagel catalogs the bizarre and, frankly, frightening tenor of the presidential election campaign being run by Chávez’s anointed successor, Nicolas Maduro. Hopefully this is just a fit of panicked populist performances and not a harbinger of the policy style his government will take if successful in the April 14th ballot.
