CHAVEZ kicked a Spanish Euro lawmaker out of the country for calling him a dictator. "Someone needs to tell Chávez that tossing a guy out for calling you dictator isn’t a very good way of rebutting his description."
UPDATE. "President Hugo Chavez said Saturday that the expulsion of European deputy Luis Herrero for statements against the Venezuelan government would "not tarnish" relations with Spain." Of course not. Herrero belongs to the conservative PP, now in the opposition. Zapatero, though he lodged a "lip service complaint," won't do anything about it.
