Latin Spring? Post-Chavez Venezuela most likely will be governed by chaos. “To Venezuela’s low-information voters, the crime and corruption were bearable because Chavez was seen as blameless, a man they could connect with as he spoke with them nonstop on television as he shoveled the government handouts.” But now the handouts are running out – there as well as here.

Anyone think that the Muslim Brotherhood will try to muscle their way in?

There’s plenty of people ready to step into the power vacuum that will be created when Cha’ dies. Probably get taken over by the guy who won the last election!

I’m sure Sean Penn or Harry Belefonte will be willing to take over the reins of power in Venezuela should El Presidente Chavez bite the weenie.

I think it should be Harry..the sooner that little creep takes his shit and moves from America, the better off we will all be, then he can arrest anyone who disagrees with him, buy himself a crown, and get himself 20 wives for all I care….
