Chavez Calls Bush "The Devil"

At the UN General Assembly today, Hugo Chavez called Bush "the devil."
"The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said, referring to Bush's address on Tuesday and making the sign of the cross. "He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world."

Chavez, who has joined Iran in opposing U.S. influence, accused Washington of "domination, exploitation and pillage of peoples of the world."

"We appeal to the people of the United States and the world to halt this threat, which is like a sword hanging over our head," he said.

A little over-the-top, but amusing.

He made the sign of the cross?! I'd say that moves it from the realm of amusing to pretty funny!

I think Chavez proved one thing in his speech. He has more in common with Bush then he wants to believe.

They are both radical Christian nutballs.
