Freezing their noses off to spite their faces–and for WHAT?

A misplaced sense of patriotism–misplaced because they’ve chosen to stand by a fake president who lied to and betrayed them, rather than a real one from elsewhere who’s painfully honest–and only trying to help:

In Alaska’s native villages, the winter cold is already seeping into plywood homes, many of the villagers are poor, and heating-oil prices are high.

And yet a few villages are refusing free heating oil from Venezuela, on the patriotic principle that no foreigner has the right to call their president ”the devil.”

The oil is offered by a company controlled by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, President Bush’s nemesis.

While some of Alaska’s Eskimo and Indian villages say they have no choice but to accept, others would rather suffer.

”As a citizen of this country, you can have your own opinion of our president and our country. But I don’t want a foreigner coming in here and bashing us,” said Justine Gunderson, administrator for the tribal council in the Aleut village of Nelson Lagoon.

Nelson Lagoon residents pay at least $300 a month per household to heat their homes along the Bering Sea. Unemployment is rampant as salmon fishing slumps.

The Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association rejected the offer because of the insults Chavez has hurled at Bush. Chavez called Bush ”the devil” in a speech to the United Nations.

Hardcore stupidity in Alaska, folks–it’s frozen solider than a poopsicle outside an igloo.

Hope the high cost of your heating oil is worth it to you, folks–it’s going to pay for a war based on lies.

And if your nose falls off from frostbite, hey…just remember, you did it to spite your face.

    What is really funny about these jingoistic morons is the reason they have to pay $300 a month for heating oil. The oil companies ship the oil from Alaska to the South to be refined then have to ship it back for these Alaskans to buy it.
    Do these idiots know that Bush has done everything in his power to help big oil generate mind-boggling profits? Bush helps raise the price of oil, but you can’t accept aid from Venezuela because Chavez called him the Devil? Talk about puting blind loyalty before family.
    Of course it is safe to assume these people probably didn’t get beyond the “Devil” part of Chavez’s speech. The right-wing pundits didn’t either.

    And these people wonder why Chavecito called Bushie a bad name? I suppose it never occurred to them that he just might have had a point, eh?
