another argument for monarchy

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 11, 2007

This is what's known in diplomatic circles as a "frank exchange:"

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

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    ¡Viva Juan Carlos! That's twice in one week that he has done the Spanish nation proud ... the first was his visit to his subjects in the Spanish cities of Ceuta and Melilla on the north coast of Africa, reaffirming Spain's possession of them. Morocco wants them was none too pleased that he chose to visit them on the anniversary of the infamous Green March in 1975. Now this. ¡Bravo! Aznar a fascist!? Chavez is a pathetic, petty little Communist dictator who aspires to be the new Castro.
