My upcoming trip to Venezuela just got more interesting
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez just called Bush an 'asshole' for, he said, supporting a short-lived coup in 2002 that briefly toppled him. -- Reuters

"Mr. Bush must know that if he gets the mad idea of trying to blockade Venezuela, or, even worse, of invading Venezuela, if that happened, the people of the United States should know that not a drop of oil would reach them from Venezuela, not a drop more," Chavez told tens of thousands of cheering supporters.

Now where would Chavez get the idea that the U.S. might invade Venezuela? (I say as the Marines are landing in Haiti.)
