Most of the Democrats took their smart pills yesterday. Pelosi called Chavez a thug, while Charlie Rangel condemned Chavez's speech.

You know that if the election weren't so near, with terrorism such an issue, they'd be nodding their heads sagely, and admiring Chavez's understanding of international affairs. As it is, they're scared they're going to lose in November, so they decided to act as if Chavez is not their natural ally. After Chavez's remarks at the UN, they had clue enough to recognize that the speech of America's enemies has become the speech of the American Left, and to distance themselves from it.

Let's face it: Jimmy Carter (the man who never met a dictator he didn't like) ratified Chavez's election, and Jimmy's been going around the world offering comments just like Hugo's.

Anyway, back to the matter in hand. The Democrats *almost* made it through the day without stabbing the President in the back when faced with a one-man Axis of Crazy.

Then, Tom Harkin came along.

While thinking that Chavez's speech was "incendiary", he understands Chavez's "frustration" and "anger". He wants a new "humility" in American foreign policy. He wants us to "[help] poor countries with things like clean water, medical aid and education".

Thanks Tom! Now, what's your plan for dealing with dirty bombs in Ames?

Tom Harkin, the true face of the Democrat party.
