Reuters Crows: Chavez Is Among Sexiest Men

“Ugly” Chavez among Venezuela’s sexiest men: poll

Thu Nov 8, 2007

CARACAS (Reuters) – Hugo Chavez calls himself ugly and his looks earned him the nickname “Goofy” in the military, but the president’s image is changing — he is now considered one of Venezuela’s sexiest men.

A poll said on Thursday the fifth-most desired man is Chavez, whose large nose, protruding lips, forehead mole and gap in his front teeth are easy fodder for caricature artists in a South American nation obsessed with beauty…

Chavez, leader of a self-described socialist revolution, is wildly popular among the nation’s majority poor. He is also well known for his sometimes vulgar innuendo and flirtation with female supporters — on live television.

Venezuelans are highly conscious of their appearance, with nips-and-tucks and breast implants common in a nation of beach goers where the annual beauty pageant traditionally draws more viewers than any other TV event…

Meanwhile, you won’t be seeing too many stories from our watchdog media about how Chavez’s thugs are gunning down student protesters:

    Well I guess this proves the old saying: “Beauty is skin deep but ugliness goes down to the bones.” Chavez is nothing but a vulgar, power driven man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Presently this petro thug is probably feeling a bout of anxiety as the demand for oil has dropped and in return so has the enormous amount of cash flow he was getting only a few months ago. Beware of any man who promises great things to the citizens of his country in exchange for an expansion of powers and a curtailment of personal liberties.
