THE GUY COULD USE a crash course on pol-sci or two:
Spain's King Juan Carlos is "fairly republican", according to Spanish premier Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

"We have a fairly republican king," Zapatero told the Spanish Cadena Ser radio station.

"For me, a republican is someone who defends institutions, democratic values, who defends public life and who respects the principles of a free citizenship and so in that sense we are very calm and at ease," said Zapatero, a socialist.

Say hello to Mr Oxymoron, he's coined another one for the list. I think I know the reason why this kind of word is composed by to parts: oxy and moron!
