At Least Some People Are Pleased

In case anyone doubts that American voters made a serious mistake yesterday, AP quotes a few people who think we didn't:

"All this fills us with optimism," gloats Venezuela's America-bashing socialist strongman Hugo Chavez.

A joint statement of Socialist members of the European Parliament called our election results "the beginning of the end of a six-year nightmare for the world" and exults that the Bush administration is "seriously weakened."

Suleiman Hadad, a lawmaker for Iran's terror-supporting client state Syria, happily comments that "President Bush is no longer acceptable worldwide."

Could any enemy of this country fail to be pleased?

At least Hugo Chavez likes the results.

My apologies to those whose comments on this post were lost. It was a result of Moonbattery being moved to a new server.

You forgot one more reason to celebrate: perhaps now Europeans will respect us, since the party that is most like them has been given power. Oh, joyous day!

Well if you really want to find a REAL bright side to this, here's a thought...

Maybe, just maybe, two years of having dems in charge will open people's eyes in time for 2008.
