The appeal of Hugo Chavez, Hollywood's hero, is finally explained.
Apparently he is under a vampire spell, or perhaps, even a vampire himself. Recent photographic evidence shows him hugging well-known vampire "Grampa Munster", who has apparently been hiding in Uruguay since the cancellation of the popular sit com"The Munsters" in the late 1960's, although some reports had him coaching UH basketball some of that time under the pseudonym "Guy Lewis".
In a political coup, Grampa, whose real name is Joe Mujica (OK, Jose), created a majority voting block by slaking his thirst for human blood from a majority of Uruguayan voters, leaving the newly undead with ravenous unmet needs and voters registrations. Not surprisingly, this block is described as a "leftist" voting block and now dependent on sucking the remaining life blood from the living flesh from the remaining "living" Uruguayan citizens. No word on what they will feed on once they have fully drained the remaining "livers", setting the stage for Vampire unrest since their own blood is reported to be unpalatable.
Analysts do admit that being in thrall with Demon Spawn and hooked on the blood of others does explain succinctly Hugo Chavez's popularity within certain demographics, including a recently pale-looking and emaciated Sean Penn.
