Venezuelan VP to Sen. McCain: 'Go to Hell'

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela's vice president derided Sen. John
McCain for suggesting that "wackos" run the South American country, saying
Monday that the United States should focus on its own problems.
Jose Vicente
Rangel was responding to McCain's statement on Sunday that America must explore
alternative energy sources to avoid depending on Iran or "wackos" in Venezuela —
apparently a reference to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
"It looks like
they have nothing else to do in the United States," Rangel said, adding that the
Americans have "so many problems, 40 million poor people, 30 million drug users,
and an American senator is paying attention to us. He can go to hell."

Hmm, interesting. Why don't we say the same to them?
