Trouble in paradise?

Venezuelan dictator, Hugo Chavez, who was once famously stricken with the smell of hope emanating from America when Obama first came into office, is now claiming that the government he runs has infected him, and other Latin American leaders, with cancer.

From CNN:

A day after officials announced the cancer diagnosis of Argentina’s president, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez wondered Wednesday if the United States could be infecting the region’s leaders with the illness.

Five current or former Latin American presidents have battled cancer in the past few years, including Chavez himself, who claims to have beaten an unspecified cancer.

Chavez prefaced his remarks at a military event in Caracas by saying, “I don’t want to make any reckless accusations,” but the Venezuelan president said he was concerned by something he finds “very, very, very strange.”

Perhaps delusion is one of the first symptoms suffered when you come to the realization that you’ve gone from accusing George Bush of being the devil, to knowing you’re about to meet the devil.
