Why Chavez Scares Bush (And Conservatives Everywhere)

I really dont know. They are soooo similar, they should be good pals instead.

Both are oil plutocrats, both think of themselves as on a god-driven mission, both hate the "arrogant liberals", both hate the media, both have a total disrespect for international law, and both have succeded on divising their countries "aither with me or against me".

Chavez is an "oil plutocrat"?

Chavez has a "total disrespect for international law"?

Like... what countries has he invaded lately?

Taking the time for a spell check also helps persuade the reader that one isn't posting while impaired. Or worse, not impaired but posting really, really silly things.
