Hero Of The Week...

My hero for the week is King Juan Carlos of Spain. He is the first leader to tell Chavez of Venezuela to "shut up." Finally, someone told that nut to shut his trap.

According to the BBC, "Spain's King Juan Carlos told Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez to "shut up" as the Ibero-American summit drew to a close in Santiago, Chile.
The outburst came after Mr Chavez called former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar a "fascist".
Mr Chavez then interrupted Spanish PM Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero's calls for him to be more diplomatic, prompting the king's outburst...Mr Zapatero said: "Former President Aznar was democratically elected by the Spanish people and was a legitimate representative of the Spanish people."
Mr Chavez repeatedly tried to interrupt, despite his microphone being turned off. The king leaned forward and said: "Why don't you shut up?"
According to reports, the king used a familiar term normally used only for close acquaintances - or children..."

LOL! I saw the video, Chavez looked stunned! He shut up because he couldn't believe that anyone was telling him to do so. Too funny.

He is indeed a hero. I wish George Bush had a pair and tell Chavez where to go instead of acting all mamby pamby. :o)

You're so right, Scott.

Thanks for your comment, Shelia. The King was pretty good for a guy who is about to hit 70 years of age. It took Chavez a day to properly reply. He made up some nut story that the King was behind a coup attempt on him.

Thanks for your comment, Titania Starlight. Too many politicians are afraid to say what they think in case it might offend someone. Now if someone would say the same to the Nut Job in Iran too.
