Idiot of the week

This is what happens when you spend too much time inhaling illegal substances – you become Diego Maradona.

A fine futbolista he may have been once but Maradona has now become one big joke.

With his old friend Fidel Castro near death, the Argentinean football legend has now hitched his wagon to a new hero, Hugo Chavez.

According to this Reuters report, Maradona told television viewers in Venezuela at the weekend that he approved of “everything Fidel does”. Of course.

He then described himself as a die-hard “chavista”, before launching a virulent attack on the United States.

"I hate everything that comes from the United States - I hate it with all my strength," he said “to thunderous applause and cheering” from supporters of Chavez.

Well, the guy has to find some way to remain "newsworthy" now that he's become an embarrassing has-been sports star. Besides, nobody ever said he was bright, IQ-wise.
