Thanks, Hugo

FOXNews viewers seethe, whine:

"Where is the international help for the United States? We are always one of the first to come to any aid when disasters strike around the world. Where is our help?? Now is the time for other nations to come to our rescue!" — Debbie (Normal, Il)

"It is truly amazing that other countries have not offered assistance to the devastation on the gulf coast. Is not the USA the first to offer assistance to other world disasters? Maybe we should quit this freebie attitude and look after our own." — Bob

"Let’s see how many countries come to our aid in the aftermath of one of the worst hurricanes to hit our shores in history. It's my guess that it will be up to the everyday working taxpayer." — Kerry

As if the U.S. were some impoverished third-world country incapable of caring for its own people, as opposed to, like, the richest and most powerful country the world has ever known.

But at least one country is offering help.

I'm sure those indignant FoxFans (and like-thinking lizards) will be rushing to thank Chávez for his generous offer, especially in light of the impending run-up in heating-oil and gas prices.

*crickets*
