Rumsfeld: Chavez is the new Hitler
Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington at about the same time that Chavez announced the expulsion of the US naval attache in Caracas for spying, Rumsfeld said the emergence of populist leaders through elections in Latin American was "worrisome."As was George W. Bush.
"You've got Chavez in Venezuela with a lot of oil money," he said. "He's a person who was elected legally just as Adolf Hitler was elected legally."
UPDATE: Human-animal hybrid Ape Man objects that Hitler wasn't actually elected leader of Germany.
Well, sure, if you want to get all "factual" about things.
Ape man also has an intelligent critique of the Chavez-Hitler comparison, as opposed to whatever it is I'm offering.
