With TV writers still out on the picket lines, comedy show producers have only to turn to the real world to come up with some hilarious stuff to entertain us. Take Dick Cheney’s latest comments over the weekend, when asked about Hugo Chávez’ influence on the Americas: (Taken from a White House transcript)
“He’s a — obviously an individual with his own agenda, and he spends a great deal of his time worrying about us and criticizing the United States. My own personal view is that he does not represent the future of Latin America, and the people of Peru I think deserve better in their leadership.”
I tell you. I don’t know about Cheney’s agenda, but he might want to squeeze a few geography and politics quick lessons here and there.
As for Chávez, he mocked Cheney saying it shows the United States is governed by a “bunch of ignorant fools.”
