image for Che Guevara Honored In New York City
The sixth Marx brother

Che Guvera, legendary revolutionary leader born 80 years ago today in Argentina, was honored in New York City, at a special ceremony

Former mayor Rudy Giuliani said: 'Just as Americans are proud of our ancestors for rising up and overthrowing the oppressive British, so we honor those who did the same, such as Che and Fidel Castro, and the Iranians led by Ayatollah Khomenei.'

And former President BIll Clinton, said: 'Che actually had the guts to not only fight in wars, and not dodge the draft, but to also openly smoke without pretending he wasn't doing it.'

Che Guevara became an icon to millions of oppressed people around the world, and led many revolutions before his death in Bolivia, in 1967, and his espousal of freeing people from colonial rule has long impressed the American people.

Speaking from Arkansas, John McCain said: 'Che was my kinda guy, a soldier like me, a brother in arms, even a Marx brother in arms, heck, it's what America needs now.'

And his opponent, Barack Obama, said: 'Although I differ from Che's communist values, at least he didn't rely on skin color and big teeth to become a world leader, man I'm envious.'

Hillary Clinton added: 'Che once fired sniper bullets at me in Germany, wow I was lucky! If I hadn't left to climb Mount Everest a few hours later, he might have got me.'

George Washington is 322 next Thursday.
