Odd Missive: Hugo Chavez serenades Hillary Clinton
Hugo Chavez is known, much like Fidel Castro, for his lengthy and frequent polemics in the state-controlled media. Where Fidel employed newspaper editorials, Chavez hosts the weekly Aló Presidente, his television show that regularly broadcasts for five hours or more, rhetorical filibusters of stunning prolificacy. During one recent broadcast, he sung a little tune to Hillary Clinton concerning their less-than-amiable relationship. The translation of his song: "I'm not loved by Hillary Clinton....And I don't love her either." At least he likes her better than Bush, who he called a stinky demon. (via The Awl)
