    The crazy thing is that he probably won legit. The communists down there have the support of the people by promising them the stars, then when they get into power it's "meet the new boss, same as the old boss".

    Except here the promise is "we'll shrink government" and then a communist like GW can go out and even outspend Bill Clinton.

    I had an aquantice who was a true to life communist in the 80's. He owned a pizza place in South Providence .... made a ton of $$$. He used to call himself a Capitalist Communist....it never made any sense to me then...in my youth...makes alot of sense now.

    Chavez won by 61%, beating Reagan's best by 3% points. He must be a hero there.
