Found this hilarious: Rudy Giuliani’s law firm is paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to lobby on behalf of Citgo, the Houston-based oil company controlled by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Chavez, as you know, refers to Bush as “the devil,” once claimed at the U.N. when speaking a day after George W. Bush that the podium shared by both smelled “of sulfur,” and lobbed insults at Bush repeatedly as our beloved presidente traveled South America on his recent tour.

Giuliani’s people are claiming that even though the law firm is named Bracewell & Giuliani, Giuliani had nothing to do with the account. Whoops!
