Hugo Chavez has won re-election as President of Venezuela by a very large margin. Appearing on the balcony of the Presidential Palace, Mr Chavez spoke to a crowd of elated supporters:
"Today we gave another lesson in dignity to the imperialists, it is another defeat for the empire of Mr. Danger," Chavez roared from a balcony above the crowds using one of the insults he has tossed at the U.S. president.
The former soldier's victory will further rile the White House, which worries about Chavez destabilizing Latin America neighbors and strengthening ties between the OPEC heavyweight Venezuela and U.S. foes Cuba and Iran.
Many of our less uderstanding fellow citizens were quite upset when Mr Chavez spoke to the UN General Assembly and referred to Mr Bu$h as "The Devil," and joked about smelling sulphur where our Great Warrior Leader had stood. It is certain they will be less upset by this new nickname.
A statement of protest is expected later today from Mr Danger's spokesman, Mr Snow.
