Words Officially Have No Meaning, Decrees Presidente Chavez

So Venezuela just gave the Scariest Little Man in the World, Hugo Chavez, rule-by-decree powers. In what would probably win the "Orwellian Phrase of the Century" prize, if they gave out such a thing, Vice President Jorge Rodriguez had this to say:
"What kind of a dictatorship is this?" Rodriguez asked the crowd, saying the law "only serves to sow democracy and peace."

"Dictatorship is what there used to be," Rodriguez said. "We want to impose the dictatorship of a true democracy." (bold mine)

Double plus ungood.

Pretty much the definition of double-speak. Muy Orwellian.
