This made me laugh… maybe even throw-up a little. Via Democracy Now!:
As Chavez was announcing the expulsion, two top US cabinet members were criticizing him in Washington. At a press luncheon, US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said: “You’ve got Chavez in Venezuela with a lot of oil money. He’s a person who was elected legally just as Adolf Hitler was elected legally.” On Capitol Hill, US National Intelligence Director John Negroponte warned against Chavez’s reelection, and said the Venezuelan leader is “seeking closer economic, military and diplomatic ties with Iran and North Korea.”
I’ve got another response to the above statement by Rumsfeld, a correction to his statement:
“You’ve got Bush in DC with a lot of oil money. He’s a person who was elected legally just as Adolf Hitler was elected legally.”
But wait we all know Bush was not legally elected.
I’m sure Chavez has his faults as does his government, but damn I love this guy.

speaking of lies and the lying liars who tell them, what is up with the Bush Administration plundering $150 Billion of American Indian money from the trust funds set up for them under the Dawes Act?
I heard a little about it the other day, but unfortunately am too preoccupied with sucking up like a sponge the two most interesting of law courses (criminal procedure and administrative law) that I have come across in my experience as a law student.
however, i have been invited to study at the Lewis and Clark School of Law’s Summer Program on Indian Law at Portland Oregon, where I can study up to 18 credit hours of American Indian Law.
seriously want to jump on that bus!
