Chavez calls Obama an "ignoramus"

I'm not making this up. This falls right into my Children On A Playground theory of international diplomacy:

"He goes and accuses me of exporting terrorism: the least I can say is that he's a poor ignoramus; he should read and study a little to understand reality," said Chavez, who heads a group of left-wing Latin American leaders opposed to the U.S. influence in the region.

First of all, Obama made $2.5 million in book sales last year. "Poor" is not the right word here. Second, Chavez clearly doesn't understand the body politic in the United States. If he wanted to bring Obama down, he should compliment him profusely.
