Jesus Chavez - Superstar

Royal insult echoes persecution of Christ, says Venezuelan leader.

Hugo Chávez is not shutting up. Venezuela's president stepped up his verbal counter-attack against the Spanish king yesterday by comparing his wounded pride to the suffering of Jesus Christ and Latin America's colonial oppression.

Three days after Juan Carlos urged Chávez to "shut up" at a summit it was the latter doing all the talking while the king retreated into silence. The "explosion" of royal disdain betrayed an enduring colonial superiority complex, the president said upon his return to Caracas. It echoed not only 500 years of imperial power and abuse, but also the persecution of Christ.

I can't help but wonder what Pat Robertson has to say about this. . .

Hugo is coming off more and more like the court jester, employed for royal entertainment while buying new shoes and vaccinations for the peasants.

Hugo and cronies will eventually leave office very wealthy men and the Venezuelan people will be just as poor. Much like Pat's game eh?
