Spain’s King Tells Chavez to ‘Shut Up’

King Juan Carlos of Spain had apparently had enough of Hugo Chavez when he said to the Venezuelan president: “Why don’t you shut up?” The public scolding took place at the 22-nation Ibero-American summit in Santiago, Chile, and was precipitated by Chavez’s attempts to paint former Spanish prime minister and Bush supporter Jose Maria Aznar as a fascist, which is a touchy term to use in front of the man who ended nearly four decades of fascist rule.

It’s really hard to look at these photos of President Bush meeting with severely wounded veterans at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio without just saying “wow” over and over.  We’re hard pressed to imagine what Bush might’ve been thinking as he saw the effects of his foreign policy on these young soldiers.

Your New Attorney General

Michael Mukasey has been sworn in as U.S. attorney general, a day after 53 senators decided that a man who doesn’t know what torture is should have the job.

The Pakistani president, general and “Daily Show” cutup has promised to hold elections a mere month after the constitutional deadline, but, as the Musharraf regime continues to arrest political rivals, whether anyone will be left to run against him is a different question altogether.
