GOOD ENEMY FOR THE SENATOR TO HAVE:

Venezuelan VP to McCain: 'Go to Hell' (CHRISTOPHER TOOTHAKER, 1/23/06, The Associated Press)

Venezuela's vice president derided Sen. John McCain for suggesting that "wackos" run the South American country, saying Monday that the United States should focus on its own problems.

Jose Vicente Rangel was responding to McCain's statement on Sunday that America must explore alternative energy sources to avoid depending on Iran or "wackos" in Venezuela _ apparently a reference to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Focussing on the problem of eneergy dependence so that we don't have to buy oil from wackos is probably what this guy doesn't want us to do.

I suppose this means no Harry Belafonte performance at the 2009 Inaguration Ball.

These guys better watch out - McCain is much more likely to get personal than Bush.

First I've read about McCain's comment. I like it, all of it. If he keeps that up I may even vote for him again as I did in the Primary. Still looking though. Condi as VP on any Republican ticket appeals to me as well.

On McCain's subject: Ford may be in trouble now, in the USA, but their new concept car, the reflex, combines diesel with electric and all wheel drive, targeting 60 M.P.G. fuel usage. If they, or anyone can make that combo fly put me on the list to buy one.
