Has Latin America ever produced an embarrassment as significant as Hugo Chavez? The nuttiness of the paranoid dictator continues with his response to a speech by Condoleezza Rice, in which she called the Chavez regime a "challenge for democracy" in the region. In response on his television show, Chavez made fun of her name and imagined himself as a hip-hop idol:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez launched a new verbal attack against US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, bluntly warning her "don't mess with me, girl."

Responding to remarks before the US Congress last week in which Rice called Chavez a "challenge to democracy" in Latin America, Chavez warned the top US diplomat to back off.

"She messed with me again," he said in his weekly "Hello President" television show, deliberately mangling her name as "Condolences." "Don't mess with me, girl."

Last week, after her US Congress testimony, Chavez dismissed Rice as "the imperial lady."

Did he snap his fingers and wave his hand, too? Call her "girlfriend"?

Coming soon: Hugo joins "The View"!
