AFTER CHAVEZ REVEALS HIMSELF FOR THE COMMONER HE IS (PART 3)... There are intelligent folk in the black community. There are many who are educated, honest and full of integrity. Then there are embarrassments like actor Danny Glover. Today, Hugo Chavez, a dictator and fascist (two things many on the left pretend to hate) spoke in Harlem once again insulting our President. Danny Glover was one of the loudest to applaud. I'm going to give my brother Danny the benefit of the doubt...I'm going to mark this one up to senility.

    Hi Jack, I'm kind of putting my comment together for these three (and maybe other) comments concerning Chevez's decription of Bush as th "devil." 1) I think Chavez meant this figuratively. He doesn't like Bush's actions toward the rest of the world. He does have a right to speak about this, since he is a part of the world being affected. Bush does represent America. 2) Americans, Danny Glover included, have a right to agree or disagree with Bush and with other people's desription of Bush. he isn't senlie. He doesn't like the way Bush represents America, the way Bush makes us all look like buttinskis and warmongers. 3) The aplause was for Chevez 's comment on Bush, not for his politics. If it's good (and you didn't say it was) for Nancy Polosi and Bill Clinton to oppose the remarks, why is it unacceptable to agree with them. Glover is an American with every right to express his views with his hands. 4) How is calling Glover "senile" different from calling Bush a "devil"? 5) What's funny about this that I don't get?

    Helen,

    I guess I'm kind of at a loss for words by your response.

"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.
