Re: Talk Amongst Yourselves ... Colombia is the new Israel

I just have to laugh about this one. I apparently have a very infamous reader.

On 3/27/2007, I posted a blog saying "Talk Amongst Yourselves ... Colombia is the new Israel"

On 3/2/2008, the unoriginal pig Hugo Chavez stole my line in a press conference, saying "The Colombian government has become the Israel of Latin America."

What should I make of this? Imitation the highest form of flattery? Great minds think alike?

PS: he's not a pig for being unoriginal. It's his populism that gets my goat.
