Wow! It's an epidemic! Now we have Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez saying that Bush is out to kill him!(hat tip: Captain's Quarters)
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has said he believes the US government is planning to assassinate him.
"If they kill me, the name of the person responsible is [President] George Bush," Mr Chavez said.
Mr Chavez - who offered no evidence to back his claim - said any attempt on his life would backfire and threatened to cut off oil supplies to America.
He was apparently reacting to growing criticism by top US officials of his left-wing government.
As I have said all along, when an individual or group continually uses the psychological defense mechanism of "Projection", it is not unusual for it to completely degenerate into full-blown psychotic paranoia. Chavez, along with Congressman Hinchey, are now just two more datapoints in the compelling evidence trail that proves the Left has completely lost their collective mind.
UPDATE: More blatant paranoia here (scroll down to the comments, where he says
I don't think we'll ever have definitive proof about this claim, but there is an ally in Congress should anyone want to keep digging. The more we continue to track down the Gannon stuff, the more that all the other balls of yarn are going to unravel).
