Hugo Chavez: Rotten in life, even more rotten in death. So sad. So very, very sad. The Venezuelan government had announced that ol’ Hugo would be embalmed and placed on permanent display a la Lenin. Unfortunately, officials waited just a little too long to begin the embalming process and now the former strongman is stronger than ever. Pungent, in fact. Speaking of which, has anyone seen Frank Lautenberg lately?
