Wall St. Journal Now On Joe Kennedy's Case Of Chavez Love

The Journal's Opinion Page today carries a piece noting Joseph Kennedy's partnership with Hugo Chavez. As noted here the other day, Kennedy seems perfectly willing to cooperate with Chavez' anti-American propaganda ploy.

The Journal does emphasize the Kennedy-centric aspect of this exercise, noting that the way one applies for the reduced price heating oil is by calling 800-Joe-4-Oil. Prepping for another run for office?

In his defense, Kennedy provides moral equivalence between the state of Venezuela's shrinking democracy and the Florida presidential elections. I, for one, would have loved to ask him if he would include Chicago 1960 on his list of the failures of American democracy.
