CARACAS, Venezuela - Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez attacked the new opposition candidate for the country's highest office as a "low-life ... pig" in a defamatory speech broadcast on state radio and TV late Thursday.
As the country's election season gets underway, Chavez said of opposition candidate Henrique Capriles that, "you have a pig's tail, a pig's ears, and you snort like a pig," according to AFP.
On Sunday, the 39-year-old Capriles won an overwhelming victory in an opposition primary. He was quickly vilified in a campaign in Venezuela's state-run media, which insinuated he was a homosexual and a Zionist agent.
Earlier this week, Chavez, in power since 1999, also accused Capriles of being "the candidate of the bourgeois, of capitalism, of imperialism."
Capriles won more than 1.8 million votes out of more than three million votes cast, stunning the government, which predicted a far smaller turnout.
Although Chavez is still popular with many poor Venezuelans, the country is afflicted with the world's highest inflation rate and suffers from a wave of violence, shortages of basic foods and frequent power blackouts.

Wow just amazing Obama’s baby brother Baby Hugo recognizes his own. Has Hugo looked in the mirror lately?
Of course, he is a “Zionist agent”, which means Chavez can soon arrest him...
Just wait for it.
Hugo’ minion also call him an anti-semite, zionist, gay, French lackey and other things.
Venezuela has no real opposition media since they were all shut down by el dictator.
Venezuela’s Hugo Mitt Romney Chavez Calls Presidential Rival a ‘Low-Life Pig’
Low life pig. Isn’t that what Sean Penn called Maria Conchita Alonso for calling Sean a commie? BTW, I thought Hugo was dying from cancer.
as we used to say out on the playground: “It takes one to know one!”
“I know you are, but what am I?”
I am suprised he hasn’t already.
The opposition expects the government to crack down on them any day. Even if they actually let the elections happen, and the opposition win, everyone will wonder if Hugo’s military will let Capriles take the office.
I’ll bet Chavez wants to kick him in the jimmy.
I hope that Mitt is taking notes on this, for future use.
What about his brother, Hormel?
Sean Penn is running against him?
I didn't know he was running against obama.
... Chavez said of opposition candidate Henrique Capriles that, "you have a pig's tail, a pig's ears, and you snort like a pig," ...
There is nothing wrong here folks. HOWEVER, if he had used the word, "macaca" The Washington Post and the rest of the MSM would have gone ballistic.
Quem e’ o porco gordo?
Tu es o porco gordo e um comunista tambem.
Lembras te o que o re de Espanha fala pra voce?
“Porque no te callas?”
Sorry, my Portuguese is pretty good, but my Spanish is weak, so I used Portuguese.
Except for the part where Spanish King Juan Carlos told Baby Huey to shut up.
Clip of Juan Carlos I telling Baby Huey to shut up ...
It must have been Chavez who said:
“You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig”
Ah Ha!! So that’s where Maxine gets all her material.
Chavez is the one who actually looks like swine....seriously.
And, Hugo, you have a pig's face.
"See if you can guess....what I am now...."
Chavez is obviously auditioning for a job as an MSNBC anchor.
Obviously Hugo hasn’t looked in a mirror lately, not that I blame him, ...oink, oink.
Venezuelans told me they believed it was drug de-tox. The cancer story was a cover. Who knows.
bump for later
He'd fit right in with the rest of the village idiots.
