Ahmadinejad is under fire for hugging Hugo Chavez's mom.
My first reaction was "Wow, those mullahs be crazy!" I mean you can't hug a grieving woman? And Mahoud and Hugo were BFFs.
And then I realized this was about neutering Ahmadinejad before the coming elections. He can't run, but the clerics have been trying to sideline him for the last few years. This is just part of the plan.
