World Applauded Chavez' Remarks. Are Bush and the Republicans Making the US a laughing Stock??

According to a New York Times article after Chavez speech:
The loud applause...lasted so long that the organization’s officials had to tell the cheering group to cut it out.


I thought it was just a wild speech by the president of Venezuela. That has happened many times at the UN.

Kruschev used to harangue and berate us, but he didn't get loud and embarassingly sustained applause. They used to laugh at him.

Now they're laughing at us.

Thank you, Republicans. Thank you for being lapdogs to the Bush administration for the big campaign contributions that can be funneled your way.

You've made the US into a joke in the eyes of the world for that money.
