Hugo's Book Club

In addition to calling Dumbya Satan and complaining that he stank the place up, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez took advantage of his United Nations appearance yesterday to do some book-peddling. The New York Times explains:

"He brandished a copy of Noam Chomsk's Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance and recommended it to members of the General Assembly to read. Later, he told a news conference that one of his greatest regrets was not getting to meet Mr. Chomsky before he died. (Mr. Chomsky, 77, is still alive.)


"He suggested that Americans read Mr. Chomsky's book instead of spending all their time 'watching Superman and Batman' movies."

Maybe Chavez doesn't understand the appeal of the Superman and Batman movie franchises. Something tells me he's mixing apples and oranges here.

It seems more likely that President Chavez has perhaps mixed some of his neighboring countries' best-known export into his apples and oranges. If he weren't such a frightening thug, he'd be a hoot.
