Mandela, like Chavez, was one of Jimmy Carter’s buddies. Hugo has gone to decorate Satan’s lower climates. Let’s hope the other two follow without further delay and take Barry along with them.

South Africa has done SO much better under Mandela!

At least, that’s the impression you get when you see the latest news coverage. Even FOX is gushing.
