Chavez Savages Bush in Speech

[It was a knock-out; not "sparring" as in another headline I read--LJ]

"Speaking from the podium where President Bush spoke a day earlier, Chavez said he could still smell the sulfur -- a reference to the scent of Satan. Even by U.N. standards, where the United States is frequently criticized as the world's superpower, Chavez's anti-American remarks were exceptionally inflammatory. They were also received with a warm round of applause [I read elsewhere it was a 5-minute ovation-LJ]."
