Coca Chavez

Michelle Mankin has pointed out a report from the Miami Herald that quotes from a recent speech by Hugo Chavez:

''I chew coca every day in the morning . . . and look how I am,'' he is seen saying on a video of the speech, as he shows his biceps to the audience.

Chávez, who does not drink alcohol, added that just as Fidel Castro ''sends me Coppelia ice cream and a lot of other things that regularly reach me from Havana,'' Bolivian President Evo Morales ``sends me coca paste . . . I recommend it to you.''

Isn't it Malkin rather than Mankin?

Uhu. It explains some things, but only up to a point.
