Serious People

According to whacko Hugo Chavez, George W. Bush is the Devil.

Really, we've heard worse from the New York Times.

John Bolton, of course, has the right attitude toward dealing with such as Hugo Chavez:

The main U.S. seat in the assembly hall was empty as Chavez spoke. But there was a "junior note taker" there, as is customary "when governments like that speak," the U.S. ambassador to the U.N said.

Ambassador John Bolton told The Associated Press that Chavez had the right to express his opinion, adding it was "too bad the people of Venezuela don't have free speech."

"I'm just not going to comment on this because his remarks just don't warrant a response," Bolton said. "Serious people can listen to what he had to say and if they do they will reject it."
Shall we see which countries have serious people for leaders and which don't? Any guesses?

Update:
Drudge has the transcript of Chavez's speech up.
