Here, courtesy of the News Hounds weblog ("we watch FOX so you don’t have to") is this exchange yesterday between Colombian President Álvaro Uribe and FOX News personality Neil Cavuto:
Cavuto [in his first question]: "Do you think Hugo Chavez is a nut?"
Uribe: "Is a…?"
Cavuto: "A nut? Crazy?"
Uribe: "No. Ah, excuse me. You do not ask this question of a president who is the president of a sister nation of Venezuela. Colombia and Venezuela are sister nations. We have had a historic brotherhood. We have a common present and of course we need a joined future. Any expression I admit on Venezuela should be a friendly expression."
Good for him.
