“I don't think it's in the best interest of Hugo Chávez, because that level of rhetoric, I think, makes others uneasy,” he said
Quite possibly one of those made uneasy by this public demonstration of derangement is Chávez’s favorite congressional sponsor, toady, and bag-man, who also faces re-election in 2 months – Delahunt himself. I doubt the Globe Op Ed board, another strong Chávez supporter, will feel uneasy. They are less accountable to anyone than Delahunt.
Congressman Billy-boy can still blame Bush for his current predicament, though. The Globe story says:
Delahunt asserted that the Bush administration's foreign policy deserves some blame for fostering a climate where a world leader could offer such strident denunciations of the American president in front of the General Assembly. He said he would continue to work with the Venezuelan leader to bring discounted oil to his constituents.
Next he’ll blame Bush for having a poisonous personal relationship with Osama. It makes you proud to live in a 1-party state.
