Legend Comparison - Joe Maddon

- Maddon also won an American League Pennant in 2008.
Legend Comparison - Chavez, Corbyn
- Yes, Chavez is a legend. He wrecked Venezuela. In 2007, Chavez nationalized Venezuela's energy sector, among other things.
- Chavez's hand-picked replacement, Nicolás Maduro, finished the job. Oil output plunged to near zero. Venezuela has some of the highest oil reserves in the world but needs to import oil.
- Venezuela is in a state of hyperinflation.
- Corbyn praises Chavez as a legend, in a positive sense.
- Corbyn splintered the UK Labour party with a confusing and changing position stance on Brexit. Prime Minister Theresa May is a disaster and Corbyn has yet to capitalize.
