Hugo Chavez, Again

I don't know who is more entertaining - Hugo Chavez or Borat. Of course, Hugo's a little bit scarier, but he's just as capable of inspiring a laugh as the Kazakh journalist is.

Here's an interview with Hugo from the Progressive. In it, he says, "Here the empire is finished, and I believe that before the end of this century, it will be finished in the rest of the world. We will see the burial of the empire of the eagle."

Here's a link to an Economist article about Latin American leadership. Luiz InĂ¡cio Lula da Silva, the president of Brazil, is losing ground to Chavez as the prominent voice of Latin America.

Keep an eye on Chavez, for sure. He's trying to land a spot on the UN Security Council, which is up for re-organization fairly soon. Russia, China, and a host of Latin American countries have already pledged to endorse his, I mean Venezuela's candidacy.

And by the way, Citgo is owned by the Venezuelan government which means it's owned by Hugo Chavez. Boycott anyone?

And by the way also, that's a picture of Cindy Sheehan up there. I'd compare her to Jane Fonda, but at least Hanoi Jane was good looking.
