Time to get a new electricity minister

How do you know when it’s time to replace your electricity minister?

Well if you are in Venezuela and you are facing terrible water shortages (in part because of a drought and in good part because of corruption and government mismanagement), your electricity minister probably shouldn’t be tweeting this:

Yep, there’s the Electricity Minister himself (what a strange cabinet posting) pointing at the thunderstorm and proclaiming that God is on Venezuela’s side.  Interesting interpretation.  No comment about why God sent Venezuela a terrible drought in the first place and an even more terrible government!

h/t to a great article in the WSJ on the topic
