Spanish King Tells Chavez to "Shut Up"

"No you shut up!"
"You shut up!"
"No you!"
"No you!"

The king of Spain told Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to "shut up" Saturday during a heated exchange at a summit of leaders from Latin America, Spain and Portugal.

Good to know mature adults are in charge of things.

Chavez, who called President Bush the "devil" on the floor of the United Nations last year, triggered the exchange by repeatedly referring to former Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar as a "fascist."

What's really funny is that someone so obsessed with his own power and so self-centered like Chavez was probably REALLY upset about being told to shut up and not being able to do anything about it.

Aznar, a conservative who was an ally of Bush as prime minister, "is a fascist," Chavez said in a speech at the Ibero-American summit in Santiago, Chile. "Fascists are not human. A snake is more human."

A snake is not human. Sure a facist is an asshole but a snake is not an asshole. That would have made more sense. Chavez...shut up.

Spain's current socialist prime minister, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, responded during his own allotted time by urging Chavez to be more diplomatic in his words and respect other leaders despite political differences.

Cooler heads prevail.

"Former President Aznar was democratically elected by the Spanish people and was a legitimate representative of the Spanish people," he said, eliciting applause from the gathered heads of state.

Chavez needs a history lesson.

Chavez repeatedly tried to interrupt, but his microphone was off.

Chavez is like that kid in kindergarten that you just know is going to be held back from going into 1st grade cause he keeps eating the glue and claiming Apple starts with the letter G.

Spanish King Juan Carlos, seated next to Zapatero, angrily turned to Chavez and said, "Why don't you shut up?"

"Zip it fucker!"

The Venezuelan leader did not immediately respond, but later used time ceded to him by his close ally Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega to answer Zapatero's speech. "I do not offend by telling the truth," he said. "The Venezuelan government reserves the right to respond to any aggression, anywhere, in any space and in any manner."

Why not tell the whole truth then Chavez, like how you're slowly turning your rule into a dictatorship.
