Is It Too Early...

...for a Hero of the Week?

The king of Spain told Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to "shut up" Saturday during a heated exchange that soured the end of a summit of leaders from Latin America, Spain and Portugal.
I love it!

This is definitely on my to do list of things to write about today. It's been quite a week for His Majesty, first with the visits to Ceuta and Melilla ruffling Islamic feathers, and now chastising communists.

Keeping in mind this is a man who almost single-handedly put down a coup in 1981.

Go Juan Carlos!

Hugo Chavez is a Socialist, not a Communist. Oh and he's bat-shit crazy too.

Sorry, I missed that distinction.

It's interesting to note that in my research I learned a) the Spanish PM Chavez kept interrupting is also a socialist, and b) Pedro Carmona, the guy who tried to unseat Chavez in 2002, is too.

Of the three of them, though, Chavez is the only one who's bat-shit crazy. He doesn't even play well with his own kind.
