Moonbats in love

Cindy Sheehan, who's crazy (or stupid?) enough to think she has a snowball's chance against Dianne Feinstein, is now pretty close to Hugo Chavez (photo from the AP/ABC News):
Chavez Backs Sheehan Plan for Bush Protest

CARACAS, Venezuela - Cindy Sheehan, the peace activist who just announced that she is weighing a run for Senate, plans to protest again outside President Bush's Texas ranch, Venezuela's president said Sunday with Sheehan by his side.

Hugo Chavez, his arm around Sheehan's shoulders, told a group of activists that Sheehan had told him that during Holy Week, in April, "she is going to put up her tent again in front of Mr. Danger's ranch."

"She invited me to put up a tent. Maybe I'll put up my tent also," Chavez said, to applause from an audience invited to his weekly broadcast on the final day of the World Social Forum, an annual gathering of anti-war and anti-globalization activists.

Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier son, Casey, was killed in Iraq in 2004, thanked Chavez for "supporting life and peace" and she was impressed by his sincerity.

"He said, 'Why don't I run for president?'" she said. "I just laughed." ...

On Sunday, when Chavez passed the microphone to Sheehan on his show, she blamed Bush for the killings of innocents in Iraq.

Noting that the singer and activist Harry Belafonte recently called Bush "the greatest terrorist in the world" on Chavez's show, Sheehan said: "I agree with him."

Chavez said his government would help protest the war in Iraq by supporting a drive to gather petitions and delivering them to the U.S. Embassy in Caracas. Chavez, who before the war in Iraq had friendly relations with Saddam Hussein, has been a frequent and strident critic of the war.
Sheehan didn't even have 15 minutes last year, because very few people outside the mainstream media actually gave a damn. Now the woman is trying to get her name back in the spotlight by announcing a candidacy for the U.S. Senate, whose staffers will be calling nightly upon St. Jude (the patron saint of lost causes). And if that weren't enough, she's now getting cozy with the Venezuelan leader whose economic policies have only exacerbated the country's poverty.

Ward Churchill and Bill Maher seemed perfect for each other, and similarly, Cindy Sheehan and Hugo Chavez appear to make a fine couple. For a couple of socialists, what could be a more romantic setting than the World Social Forum, also known as "a gathering of moonbats"?
