Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez offered to send food and fuel to the United States after the powerful Hurricane Katrina pummeled the US south, ravaging US crude production.
I’ve got a counteroffer for Mr. Chavez. In exchange for all the Venezuelan oil they can pump at a very reasonable $30/barrel, we’ll send Pat Robertson’s head on a silver platter (ensuring Pat 72 evangelical virgins no doubt) and we won’t use the leftover poisoned cigars from the Castro plot. I think it’s more than fair.
Bryan is Arguing with Signposts about the Chavez offer, which he thinks may be just empty promises.
