New York Daily News - Home - The Big Apple hits back - hard: "Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) had few words for Chavez: 'Despicable and disgusting.' And Gov. Pataki told Chavez to get out of town. 'The best thing he can do is go back to Venezuela and try to provide freedom for his people instead of what he's done here in New York,' Pataki said. But the crowd of hundreds of cheering Chavez supporters - including actor Danny Glover, City Councilman Charles Barron (D-Brooklyn) and celebrity Princeton Prof. Cornel West - waved Venezuelan flags and cheered as he made fun of Bush. 'I said he was a devil - yes, a devil. I think he's a devil,' the Venezuelan president said in Spanish." "The devil, yes, the devil," Chavez said. "Seriously."

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
