Woody Allen: "It Would Be Good If Obama Could Be a Dictator for a Few Years"

Woody Allen wants Barack Obama to be dictator for for a few years so that he can completely socialize America. The article published today, May 15, 2010, did not make it into any English-language paper.
The article quotes Allen as saying [first in Spanish, then in English from a trusted reader] —
“Estoy encantado con Obama, creo que es genial. El Partido Republicano debería quitarse de su camino y dejar de intentar herirle.”
“I am pleased with Obama. I think he’s brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him.”
And, the money quote:
“…sería bueno…si pudiera ser un dictador durante algunos años, porque podría hacer un montón de cosas buenas rápidamente.”
The translated quote:
“…it would be good…if he could be a dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly.”
Of course, this comes as a complete shock.
What is it with these leftist loons and their passion for socialist dictators?
