Once again Will Rogers is proven right--I'm not a member of any organized political party, I'm a Democrat.
Rep. Charles Rangel of New York says of the world's new favorite standup comedian, Hugo Chavez, that "if there's any criticism of President Bush, it should be restricted to Americans - whether we voted for him or not."
How patently absurd. Has Charlie forgotten 1) that whole free speech thing, 2) that our president tried to engineer a coup to overthrow Chavez, 3) this was the United Nations, an international forum and 4) as the 800-lb gorilla, our actions have a direct impact on other countries?
Nancy Pelosi doubles up on that, objecting to the name-calling and disrespect shown to our president by--calling Chavez an "everyday thug."
Nice work, guys.
