Hugo's Book Club

Forget about the woman that single-handedly picked our current President, Hugo Chavez puts her to shame when it comes to promoting book sales.

Just two days after the Venezuelan leader gave Barack Obama a copy of Eduardo Galeano's Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent it went to number TWO on Amazon's Best Seller List. It had been 54,295.

I guess if there was a group that sang and chanted B. Hussein's name, they would definitely want to read anything he was reading. So really, it was more the Cult of Obama than Chavez's literary prowess that catapulted Galeano's 1970's diatribe against the United States.
