Oil for Influence

From OpinionJournal:

Money can't buy love, unless you're Anna Nicole Smith. But these days a little heating oil can buy friends in Washington, especially when they come as cheap as Democrat William Delahunt. Massachusetts wants bargain oil prices to help it through the winter. Venezuelan tyrant Hugo Chávez wants influence in Washington. Leave it to the Congressman from the Commonwealth and a Kennedy to close the deal.

Last week Venezuela announced that its U.S.-based Citgo Petroleum would sell 12 million gallons of home heating oil at a 40% discount to help the poor in Massachusetts.

We've been talking about Chavez at our place as well. This is so par for the course. . . Look at the Sandalistas and the disgraceful way Dems sucked up to Ortega. Look at their perverse relationship with Castro. Bleh. It's despicable. . .
