Venezuela's Hugo Chavez Rations Electricity
Herman Cain said the other night at the last debate that he would have been DOA in any other medical system. I know that politics has a lot to do with this, but having been through what he has, I'm inclined to believe him.

Who will be running the country after Chavez kicks the bucket?

Hard to tell. My guess is that he is leading by sheer personality. Once he is buried, all will be up for grabs.

Won't change anything in Venezuela. Leaders reflect populations. Always have, always will. Good or bad, it's always this way.

I just read that there is now a populist right winger who is a credible threat to Hugo next election, assuming Hugo lives to the next election. One imagines that such a person would be sandbagged one way or another by Hugo. If Chavez dies before the elections, is it clear that his myrmidons will be able to take over? How could they abort the election?

If we can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy.

Does he have a brother? A son...?

Perhaps his wife would take over, as in Argentina.

Looks like that wonderful Cuban medicine hasn't turned the trick for Uncle Ugo.

If you recall, John, the original surgery was dependant upon continued chemotherapy, further at that time it was believed that the diagnosis involved colon cancer. Interestingly enough, during the course of the eight months consequent to the surgery, senor presidente began a continuous "bloat", quite apparent now from his latest photographs, which is hardly characteristic of colon cancer--where rapid weight loss is the expected manifestation. In contrast any picture of Chavez displays blated facial features characteristic of edema (excess fluids in cells and tissues), which often is a complication of chemotherapy. Certainly that characteristic is common in prostrate cancer and subsequent treatment to ensure such has not metastasized through the lymphatic system. Could we be discussing an ano-rectal lesion [ano-rectal melanoma]?

Here's a synopsis:

Anorectal melanoma is a rare tumor with an extremely poor prognosis. It represents less than 1% of all melanomas and accounts for ~4% of anal malignancies.1 The clinical diagnosis of anal melanoma is, at best, challenging. Patients often present with nonspecific complaints such as rectal bleeding (most common) or anal pain. Furthermore, a significant minority (~34%) of lesions may lack pigment, thus requiring biopsy for a definitive diagnosis. Although many patients present with what initially appears to be curable localized disease, undetected regional or distant metastases are common. Even with aggressive surgical resection, more than 80% of patients will die of distant metastatic disease within 5 years.

If such was the original diagnosis, it goes a long way to explain the official silence...

I'm tempted to utter adios, senor presidente!

I too believe he will soon be history. Lets see how long his rendition of Social Collectivism continues to prosper.

Looks like Uncle Ugo's latest cancer treatment/operation has been a failure. Now he's off to Brazil to try his luck there.

Perhaps someone should start a poll where members can choose which month he will be 'former' president? We still don't officially know what cancer he has, but obviously socialized medicine can't make it go away.

Perish the thought! If you know your Venezuelan history, you would know just how many "former" presidents have returned to keep up their old ways, particularly those with military trappings. Throughout its history, Venezuela has been notorious as the home of "the man on horseback" as an expression of political authority and one could easily conclude that this is not about socialism or capitalism (the rhetoric is incidental) but egomaniacal power.
