"The Bolivarian Republic of Massachusetts?"

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

At Heritage c/o Instapundit:

The Christian Science Monitor reports today that “liberals from around the world” are flocking to Caracas “to experience Hugo Chavez’s experiment in socialism.” Liberals here in the United States worried about the carbon credits they’d have to purchase to offset a flight to Venezuela might consider visiting Massachusetts instead.

Heh indeed.

The news isn’t all light humor though. According to the author, Congressman James McGovern (D., Mass.) has been “working with an American go-between, who has been offering the [FARC] rebels help in undermining Colombia’s elected and popular government.”

I guess at least one contemporary Democrat feels he shares a common cause with Marxist “rebels”? How telling.
