Venezuela's Chavez bashes Bush

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has taken his latest swipe at U.S. President George W. Bush, saying he hopes his successor in the White House isn't a "madman" or a "drunk."
Chavez has insulted Bush calling him everything from "the devil" to a "donkey."
In a televised speech Friday, Chavez ridiculed photos of Bush at the Olympics that have circulated on the Internet.
The Venezuelan leader said Bush looked drunk and quipped to his listeners: "Gold medal for alcoholism."
Chavez said he hopes "a serious man" is elected president in the U.S., "who isn't a drunk, who respects the world, who isn't a madman."
The U.S. Embassy said it had no immediate comment on Chavez's remarks.
