What I like about the US

The great thing about the United States is that its guests can ascend to a global platform on its very own turf and then with great alacrity start trash talking about its Big Leader at will:

From the podium of the General Assembly, the Venezuelan leader said he smelled lingering sulfur, left by President Bush, who had spoken there the day before and whom he branded “the devil.”

“The devil came here yesterday,” Chavez said, referring to Bush’s address on Tuesday and making the sign of the cross. “He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world.”

If you hafta watch the video, feel free to do so (the great thing about the Internet). But of course the best thing that’s come out of this is the publicity given to one of Noam Chomsky’s books!


One thought on “What I like about the US

  1. hey bel, i finally got my act together and am starting to retrieve all my links and blogs… me being one prone to inertia esp after i replaced my HD.

    anyhow, was reading through your blog, and don’t forget the greatest irony is that mr dictator chavez ain’t no angel himself even though he tries to shroud and portray himself as one.

    such are the quiggly quiggly holes of life. dictactor for life? now where have i heard this one before…
