You'd think Hugo Chavez 'owned' NYC and the United Nations, too, if you could stand to listen to his "devil" speech. Democrats from Rangel to Pelosi at least made a show of standing up to the horrible dictator.
Not so with Iowa's Senator Harkin, one of my senators so to speak, who actually defended Chavez. I hope Harkin's opponent in the next senatorial race remembers this and reminds Iowa voters of it a great many times. Ed at State 29 is so angry he wonders when Tom's plane will crash.
Update: Senator Harkin's office released a statement that clarifies his views. He said that Chavez "doesn't have the right" to come here and call our president a devil even though he understands why the good dictator must be frustrated with Bush.
