This is great. King Juan Carlos told Hugo Chavez to shut up at the Ibero-American summit in Chile. Made him look like the crude, vulgar demagogue he is.

Chavez was slagging off Spain in general and former prime minister Aznar in particular, calling him a "fascist." Zap showed some class (for once) and reminded Chavez that Aznar was a democratically elected leader and deserved respect. Chavez interrupted Zap, and kept on with his anti-Spanish rant, and the King told him, "Why don't you shut up?" Then Daniel Ortega got into it, attacking the Spanish company Union Fenosa, and Juan Carlos walked out.

Three cheers for the King, and one cheer for Zap, too.
