hmm, I think he was bending things on a couple of points, such as whether every time Bush sees a coloured man, he sees a terrorist. The thing is that Bush is the epitome of an 'ugly american' and plays beautifully into any embellishment that Chavez may utter. I personally think that Chavez may end up being the Ronald Reagan of Latin America, by making speechs that piss off a lot of people. He has enough power and influence to put an end to the Monroe Doctrine which is basically the statement that the western hemisphere is the US's playground. The worst damage Chavez could do to the US is to help various latin nations to get out from under their indebtedness to the Internation Monetary Fund, a tool used by the US to force said countries to structure their econimies to suit the US and not the poor people living in those countries.

In any case, Chavez promises to be a serious PitA to the bushies, and if Bush can use all his influence to put an asshole assertive nationalist in the UN as the US's representative, then the various folk in the UN are certainly entitled to push back but voting Chavez into the security council. Should make for lots of whacky fun in the near future. :3
