Hugo Chavez for president
In case you haven't heard, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called President Bush Mengele "the devil" and accused him of smelling like sulfur(?) during a speech to the United Nations General Assembly the other day.
Here's the take-home part courtesy of a transcript I found on Fox News' website (I know) via Wikipedia, the most accurate encyclopedia in the history of the world.
Yesterday, the devil came here. Right here. Right here. And it smells of sulfur still today, this table that I am now standing in front of.
Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the president of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as the devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world. Truly. As the owner of the world.
I'd be lying if I said I was familiar with the Bible, so maybe this is a silly question, but is part of the devil's thing that he reeks of sulfur?
Or maybe President Bush really does just happen to have some sort of condition where the smell of sulfur seeps through his pores the way some homeless people happen to smell like Indian food. (Or perhaps Indian food smells like homeless people?)
After the jump is a CNN video of the incident. I'm assuming Chavez gave the speech in espanol and then CNN had some broad translate it into ingles. She did a pretty good job though.
