(Newser) – Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wins the crown for praise of Hugo Chavez, declaring in a letter to the Venezuelan people that Chavez will be resurrected with Jesus and a revered Shiite imam, reports the Guardian. “I have no doubt he will come again along with all the righteous people and the Prophet Jesus and the only successor of the righteous generation, the perfect human,” he said, the latter referring to the Hidden Imam, explains the New York Times. Ahmadinejad also agrees with Venezuela's government that Chavez's death is a little fishy.
