Aaaand, bigmouth strikes again.
Being the free wheeling, attention seeking, socialist loose cannon that he is, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez couldn’t resist opening up to the press on his plans for his next gift to Obama: Lenin’s “What Is to Be Done?” arguably one of the most influential texts on the pre-revolutionary Russian socialist movement. And (having had to read it as part of an undergrad history assignment) an extremely boring read.
Reportedly, he did so during a marathon anniversary edition of his broadcast television show, “Hello, President!” I assume he was on day three and feeling a little loopy. Although, perhaps he’s taking a cue from our POTUS in his style of gift giving.
Oh, and here’s a “candid” picture of Chavez talking about his t.v. show. Enjoy.
