Hugo Chavez is in a Silent Cat Fight with Miss Universe
One theory could be that he just doesn't like Venezuelans lavishing someone with so much attention that's not him, or because as a socialist he hates everything beauty pageants stand for. Who doesn't remember Karl Marx's stirring work A Contribution to the Critique of Glitter and Rhinestones?
Chavez won't call Fernandez with a congratulation, not even on his penis phone!
He probably hasn't forgotten the time the previous Miss Universe, also a Venezuelan, visited Guantanamo Bay and couldn't stop raving about how great it was, when Chavez was calling it basically a torture camp.
