The UN's Two-fer.

A day or two ago, Reach Upward commented on the dismaying fact that the UN invited Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to visit the UN general session and have a go at the microphone.

Well, the UN actually scored a two-fer when you think about it.

This was round two:

Hugo Chavez. Holding a book by Noam Chomsky. While he speaks at the United Nations. And calls George Bush the devil.

Man, I'm glad I'm not a conservative. Because I wouldn't even know where to begin with this picture. It's like Christmas, Hanukkah and Skull and Crossbones initiation night all in one picture. It's the gift that won't ever stop giving. Frankly, I'm afraid to wander over to conservative political Web sites at the moment. I can't even imagine what they're saying about this picture. I'm not sure I want to know.

NPR reported last night that sales of the book at Amazon, which Chavez suggested that ALL Americans should read, because it talks about the "Devil That Lives Among US, within our very borders", is reporting significantly higher sales in the last 24-36 hours.

So which is worse...that Chavez called Dubya the devil or that I pictured him as the Pootie Fairy?

I have no answer for that.

Let's go with Chavez as the fairy...

Dubya can still be the devil.
