Candy Is Dandy, But Liquor Is Quicker

Arlen Specter Is a Cheap Date for Venezuela's Dictator
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is buying MiGs from Russia and stockpiling AK-47s that intelligence reports suggest are meant for his paramilitary sympathizers at home and around the region. Using his oil wealth and what he's learned from Fidel Castro, he is actively funding anti-Americanism all over Latin America and working to destabilize legitimate governments. He makes no secret of his cozy relationship with Iran's mullahs and China's military men.

But never mind all that. Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter wants the U.S. to make nice with the bully so that we can fight the "war on drugs" together.
