Heck, Let Chavez Have The Seat

While I think Guatemala is a better choice, of course

Fierce US critic Venezuela and US-backed Guatemala fought a bitter battle for Latin America’s open seat on the UN Security Council, forcing voting into a second day under pitched lobbying by the United States.
Guatemala led in all but one of the 10 rounds of voting, which was a tie, but Caracas held on to enough support to deny Guatemala the two-thirds majority of votes cast in a particular round needed to win.

The sheer entertainment value of having Venezuela on the Security Council is worth whatever disruption they might cause. Let’s face it, the Council is useless anyway, and I want the list posted of every nation that voted for Venezuela as this farce continues to show everyone how even the members of the UN regard it as a joke.
