I saw this on Rui Ferreira’s blog in El Nuevo Herald.
I wonder if King Juan Carlos realized at the time what an incredible gift he was giving the world with those five simple words. That basic phrase—one that has been repeated countless times by all of us—has caused an incredible amount of furor throughout the world. And as you can be see by this large banner in Caracas, the King’s verbal bitch slap of the boy-dictator has given the opposition a much needed shot in the arm.
They say that truth is stranger than fiction, and this is one case where no one can argue with that. The most talented fiction writer would be hard pressed to come up with such a sublime twist to the Venezuela/chavez story.
