Democrats Pelosi & Charlie Rangel doing their Best Animal House Impersonation to Hugo Chavez


A day after President George W. Bush was called a “devil” by Venezualian President Hugo Chavez, we witness some rather interesting comments. The actions of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and NY Representative Charlie Rangel can best be described as an audition for a remake of “Animal House”. The comments from both Democrats don’t sound all that much different than below from the 1978 movie cult classic, Animal House.



[Watching Flounder take abuse at ROTC]    Listen here

Otter: He can’t do that do that to our pledges.

Boon: Only we can do that to our pledges.



In retrospect, being called a devil is rather tame compared the the insults, barbs and nasty comments made by Democratic leader toward President Bush both in America and overseas. As Michelle Malkin  stated, Dems to Chavez: Don’t insult Bush, that’s our job!

Charles Rangel’s comments were as follows: (full statement from Rangel’s website)

 RANGEL: AN ATTACK ON BUSH IS AN ATTACK ON ALL AMERICANS… ‘You do not come into my country, my congressional district, and you do not condemn my president. If there is any criticism of President Bush, it should be restricted to Americans, whether they voted for him or not. I just want to make it abundantly clear to Hugo Chavez or any other president, do not come to the United States and think because we have problems with our president that any foreigner can come to our country and not think that Americans do not feel offended when you offend our Chief of State’…

Now listen to Charlie Rangel say pretty much the same thing. Animal House II may be in his future. Isn’t this the same guy who said the following?


But there was nothing inadvertent about a quip from Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-N.Y.), second-most senior member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

“Well,” Rangel said. “I really think that he shatters the myth of white supremacy once and for all; it shows that, in this great country, anybody can become president.”

Nancy Pelosi’s lines were pretty much from the same memo and called Hugo Chavez “a thug”.


“Hugo Chavez fancies himself a modern day Simon Bolivar but all he is an everyday thug,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said at a news conference, referring to Chavez’ comments in a U.N. General Assembly speech on Wednesday.

“Hugo Chavez abused the privilege that he had, speaking at the United Nations,” said Pelosi, a frequent Bush critic. “He demeaned himself and he demeaned Venezuela.” (Reuters)

Go to Hot Air for some great commentary, “Still, it’s always nice to see a lefty put country over party. Even if he really isn’t.”

The sad part is that a majority of Democrats do not mean it. Iowa Tom Harkin defended Chavez’s comments at the UN.

Harkin said the comments were “incendiary”, then went on to say, “Let me put it this way, I can understand the frustration, ah, and the anger of certain people around the world because of George Bush’s policies.” Harkin continued what has been frequent criticism of the president’s foreign policy. (Radio Iowa)

Unfortunately for the Democratic Party Chavez put the Democrats in a no win situation where they lose if the apologize and back the President and lose if they side with Chavez. How many over night polls were done on this little fire storm?

Help nominate and leave your comments for the rest of the cast for the new Animal House 2006, Inside the Beltway … John ‘Bluto’ Blutarsky, Dean Vernon Wormer, Mandy Pepperidge, Doug Neidermeyer, Robert Hoover and the rest.

      typical politician. He could have easily not included “…because we have problems with our president” and it would have still made sense. I guess politicians are just wired wrong in the head.

      Sadly, I could see a republican saying the same thing if a dem was sitting in the white house.

      This is Hugo’s latest comments..from Drudge.. I do read Drudge everyday. He walks like John Wayne.. ROFL..

      A day after Chavez used the UN bully pulpit to call Bush “the devil” a “tyrant” who acts like he owns the world — prompting broad condemnation in the United States — Chavez was equally vitriolic as he spoke at the Olivet Baptist church in the New York neighborhood of Harlem.

      “Bush is an alcoholic, a sick man with a lot of hang-ups,” declared the left-wing Venezuelan leader. “He walks like John Wayne.”

      Bush “doesn’t know anything about politics, he got there because of Daddy,” said Chavez, referring to Bush’s father, George Bush, US president from 1989 to 1993.

      Yugo Chavez is a cartoon character. He was better off being this anonymous boogieman in Venezuela.

      What a clown. Bringing his “banana republic” childish nonsense to America. Could he look or act any smaller?

      Yes, meant to call him “Yugo” ;)

      Chavez, guys like YOU have been falling throughout
      history, like bad poll numbers, infected, sick,
      decaying, trees, and like the latest
      American gas prices even!!!

      … but Senor Jorge does walk like John Wayne
      sometimes. Laura must be doublin’ up on
      the starch count in his
      BVDs fruitas de loomis.

      Be gone with u Chavez,
      you’re like the loud
      annoying drunk that hangs
      around after the party
      has already been
      over for hours.

      Nobody wants to hear
      your luntic ramblings, bro bro.

      Eat an air biscuit.
