Hugo Chavez rejects Obama’s ambassador, would prefer someone famous

Hugo Chavez has rejected President Obama’s nominee to be ambassador to Venezuela. The nominee, Larry Palmer, has criticized Chavez’s government. But maybe that’s not the problem! Maybe Chavez is just looking for someone a little more Hollywood.

In a televised speech on Tuesday, Venezuela’s president said he had come up with a solution. “I hope they name Oliver Stone. I’ll suggest a candidate … Sean Penn or [linguist and philosopher Noam] Chomsky. We have a lot of friends there. Bill Clinton.”
