Monday's Column: Hugo Chavez Insults Bush, Bush Gets Defended By… Democrats?

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily revolves around just how hard I laughed when Hugo Chavez came to New York City and called President Bush a “sick man,” an “alcoholic,” “the devil” and many other things.

No, that wasn’t the funny part. What was chuckle-inducing was when some of Bush’s harshest and most vicious critics in Congress came to his defense.

Why did they ward off a non-domestic W basher? Read “Hugo Chavez gets donkey punched” for the story.
