Why does GQ profile dictators???

How low can a fashion magazine go? They interviewed Hugo Chavez in the UK....
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says he likes Prince Charles and thinks President Bush is crazy, in an interview with Naomi Campbell in the British edition of GQ magazine.

The 37-year-old supermodel spoke to Chavez in her role as contributing editor to British GQ, the magazine said. Excerpts were released Monday.

Chavez, who lost a referendum last month that would have greatly expanded his powers and institutionalized his version of "21st-century socialism," gave Campbell his views on a range of subjects.

He said President Bush was "completely crazy. But he's on his way out."

"We're seeing the fall of the empire. ... Like the fairy tale, the emperor is naked," he was quoted as saying.

Asked to name the world's most stylish leader, Chavez chose Cuba's Fidel Castro.

"Fidel, of course! His uniform is impeccable. His boots are polished, his beard is elegant," Chavez said.

Isn’t Musharraf a “dictator” and hasn’t he been interviewed extensively by the mainstream press. Heck, he was even on The Daily Show not that long ago promoting his book. I searched your blog for outrage about that, but funnily enough wasn’t able to find any. I guess it’s okay when they’re “our” dictator, huh? The moral relativism of the Right. Gotta love it.
