My first laugh of the day comes from those D.C. clowns!

The story's headline reads:

"Chavez to U.S. Officials: 'Go to Hell' "

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) - President Hugo Chavez told U.S. officials to "Go to hell, gringos!" and called Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice "missy" on his weekly radio and TV show Sunday, lashing out at Washington for what he called unacceptable meddling in Venezuelan affairs.

The tirade came after Washington raised concerns about a measure to grant the fiery leftist leader broad lawmaking powers. The National Assembly, which is controlled by the president's political allies, is expected to give final approval this week to what it calls the "enabling law," which would give Chavez the authority to pass a series of laws by decree during an 18-month period.

On Friday, U.S. State Department deputy spokesman Tom Casey said Chavez's plans under the law "have caused us some concern."

Chavez rejected Casey's statement in his broadcast, saying: "Go to hell, gringos! Go home!"......

Hmmm, "broad lawmaking powers" being granted by "the president's political allies" in Venezuela is raising concerns in Washington, D.C.?

I don't recall similar concern or outrage from Washington D.C. power pimps when president Bush's political allies granted him the same authority.

I didn't really laugh until I read the word "gringos" attached. Also, the thing about Condoleezza Rice gave me and my dad a little chuckle.

Enough people are saying, "Go to hell, America!" for it to be funny anymore without some kind of creative additive.

Bush is just so jealous, he can't wait to get down to paraguay & set himself up with a similar deal. I do hope Hugo keeps it up. I have mixed emotions about him, but love when he stands up to King Rat & his mistress mousie. ~~ D.K.
