I am sick and tired of…

…the Venezuela bashing.  It is bad enough that conservatives hate that Hugo Chavez spends money on poor people.  But for Barack Obama to talk about how we shouldn’t send our energy dollars to this democracy, that happens to provide some heating oil assistance in the Northeastern part of the US, is just too much.

As a follow up, other than being a democracy, are there any other criteria that would exclude nations that practice democratic rule from John McCain’s League of Democracies.  After all there are countries that practice democracy that we don’t like, from our foreign policy frame of mind (not Josh’s personal opinion), like Iran, Venezuela, Palestine, Austria (think Haider), and Bolivia?
