(CARACAS) In an effort to stanch the eroding value of Venezuelan currency, President Hugo Chávez has issued a new currency with a new name, the Bárbara.
Chávez hopes to stem the steep tide of inflation by lopping off approximately two zeros and turning the 1000 bolivar coin into a coin valued at 12-1/2 fuerte or strong bolivars.
Chávez has nicknamed the new coin Bárbara because its copper color closely matches Barbara Walterss henna hair. In addition, Barbaras recent interview broadcast on ABCs Good Morning America has restored my currency as the most important leader of the Western Hemisphere.
In her March 16th interview with Chávez, Walters called Chávez a dignified man and forgave him for calling President Bush a devil and a donkey.
Barbara added that Chávez is not the crazy man that we have heard, referring to Chávezs famous rant earlier this year at the UN when he compared Bush to Satan.

If Baba Wawa’s hair is henna color it comes out of a bottle.
They could have called this coin the “Old Gray mare.”
I’m not so sure I’d be flattered, having my name attached to a coin whose value shrinks daily.
Is this real? Not satire? Chavez wants to name the new coin after an American talking head rather than Simon Bolivar, a hero of Latin American independence? Just because she spoke nicely about him?
Nah! The MSM is not considered "in the tank" for leftest dictators. Nah!
Are they sure that it isn’t named after the famous Commie Fool Streisand?
