BREITBART.COM - Just The News: "The Bush administration swiftly and unequivocally distanced itself Tuesday from a suggestion by religious broadcaster Pat Robertson that American agents assassinate Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, a frequent target of U.S. foreign policy.
Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld, appearing at a Pentagon news conference, said when asked: 'Our department doesn't do that kind of thing. It's against the law. He's a private citizen. Private citizens say all kinds of things all the time.'
Acknowledging differences with the Caracas government, and saying it should be promoting democracy in the Western Hemisphere, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack called Robertson's remarks 'inappropriate.'
'This is not the policy of the United States government. We do not share his views,' McCormack said in a flat refutation of Robertson's suggestion that the United States 'take out' Chavez to stop Venezuela from becoming a 'launching pad for communist influence and Muslim extremism.'"

O wait a minute. Actually, Moore got to sit in the Presidential Box and the Democratic National Convention.
Both parties have nuts. It's just that one is led by them, the other endures them.
