Welcome to the Parade of Fools

Or as it is more commonly known, the U.N. General Assembly. First, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad walks around the streets of our town as if he wasn't the menace to civilization that he is. This is why I love America: in some other place closer in spirit to his regime he probably wouldn't be allowed to see the light of day. Plus, I hate his ecru suits and I hate his facial hair. He needs some serious grooming.
Then Bush shows up, also walking about scot free, while he should be at the very least impeached for a variety of sins: Iraq and Katrina being the worst of them but by no means the only ones.
But leave it to clown extraordinaire Hugo Chavez to steal the show with his impassioned calling of Bush "the devil". Where else on Earth but on Planet Hugo Chavez do you get a statesman who manages to cram sulphur (as in, it still smells of sulphur in here because the devil - Bush - was here yesterday), the sign of the cross and Noam Chomsky in one hugely entertaining speech? Not to mention a reference, misguided but still, to Alfred Hitchcock:
"As the spokesman of imperialism, (Bush) came to share his nostrums to try to preserve the current pattern of domination, exploitation and pillage of the peoples of the world. An Alfred Hitchcock movie could use it as a scenario. I would even propose a title: 'The Devil's Recipe.' "Which goes to show how little Chavez knows about Hitchcock. It sounds like he's thinking more along the lines of a Michael Bay kind of spectacle.
He also said the U.S. government was the "first enemy" of its people.
"Their freedoms are restricted through the Patriot Act. They are sent to die in Iraq for no reason. The people of the United States are being deceived," he said.

This, I am in complete agreement with. Who could argue with this?

Chavez told reporters he, too, would like to explore nuclear energy. OY VEY.

He ended the news conference by saying, "I have a meeting with the axis of evil somewhere around here, so I have to go."

Someone invite him to headline at Caroline's. He is a hoot.
