Chavez mocks Clinton as "blond Condoleezza"

CARACAS (Reuters) – Venezuela's President Hugo mocked U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday as a "blond" version of her predecessor, and said a row with Spain over alleged links with rebel groups was over.

Visiting Latin America this week, Clinton said the Obama administration's policies towards the region were helping blunt the criticism of the United States by leftist leaders like Chavez.

"To me, she's like Condoleezza Rice ... a blond Condoleezza," said the Venezuelan, referring to former U.S. president George W. Bush's secretary of state, with whom he exchanged frequent harsh words at long-distance.

Citing comments by Clinton in Brazil, Chavez said she was proving to be equally aggressive. "She comes to Brazil to provoke us, to try and divide us from our brothers."

Reaching out to 'his people'?

This is actually a pretty good and funny insult.

Hitlery fancies herself Presidential or world-class leader material.

Chavez is just reminding her that, despite what she thinks of herself, she serves no higher level in government than one she must have looked down upon (and ridiculed) for many years.

When will the Dims wake up and see that the tyrants of the world hate all Americans, regardless of party?

She lacks the balls to be a blond. But she is also not a real blonde.

Personally, I'd never have the courage to find out for myself.

Kudos to you for taking the plunge though.

Right before the perps drop the pellets, hit the button, drop the guillotine, push the chair/lever for the trap door, pull the trigger, turn the garrotte, or "roll on two".
