Waterboy Goes to the UN

I just happened to glance over at my monitor to see Chavez addressing the UN. It was perfect timing because I turned up the volume just as he was describing how the UN still smelled like sulphur after Bush addressed the General Assembly yesterday, right before he called Bush "The Devil". (Ah, but the bigger question would be, Does he wear Prada??) That's classic. I couldn't help but laugh and think of Kathy Bates in The Waterboy.

Another gem: Apparently, we Americans want peace, but the US government doesn't, as evident in the fact that our military is bombing Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine. A little chicken-or-the-egg syndrome and a lack of understanding how democracy works....But that's no surprise.

As much as I'd hate to admit, he did make a few good points: a) that the UN is "worthless", good for meetings and "introducing long documents", b) suggesting the UN move out of the US.

At the end of the day (nod to Nick), I think he was jealous b/c the only people who attended his speech were his fellow whackos, despite the cameras trying to limit the view of all the empty seats, whereas Bush spoke to a full, packed assembly. Heeheehee.....
