Karl Rove's new best friend..........
If he could get Hugo and Mahmoud Whasshisname to come along on a tour of the South and Midwest, the President could probably get back above a 50% approval rating.
As was pointed out in another blog, "President Bush can talk about his national security plan and foreign policy all day long..........but no one makes a more compelling case than the duo of Mahmooud and Hugo."
The comment was meant in jest, but in truth, their coming here and giving their speech was a Godsend for Bush and the Republican party. Does anyone remember what the President of the United States said? No. And there has been precious little coverage of him saying it. However watching Hugo Chavez play the role of latino buffoon crossing himself and calling Bush the devil, that's priceless. Both of them make the perfect set up figures, to arouse the jingoistic impulses in all of us. To steal a line from Animal House, "Hey! They can't do that to our
Hugo needs to go back to public affairs school. Cheap theatrics only backfire. " Oh no, don't shoot him. You'll just make him mad...!" Both these guys need to talk with Musharev, who picks Bush's pocket while playing the slick "friend of the war on terror". All the while dropping indiscrete hints that he was bullied into it, and he really does not know what all those Taliban are doing walking around free and clear in his country. And did anyone but me notice how really empty the assembly was when they were speaking? A far cry from the packed house when Kruschev was banging his shoe. The applause only seemed loud, in reality it was no applause at all.
Talk about the issues? No need to as long as Hugo is around. He makes the perfect punching bag. Mahmooud Whassisname, hell he looks scary. Imagining him with nukes makes one break out into a cold sweat..........
Wonder how many books Karl would have to buy to get these guys to campaign till November. The Democrats should lead the drive to get these guys back on the plane immediately....with a gag in each mouth. Because every time they open it, its a 5 point drop for the Democrats. Namely because they have no one who can make a better case.
And it probably has not hurt Chomsky's book sales either.............
