Chavez was the progressive dream on steroids.

He spent on entitlements, lived off capitalism. But even this couldn't halt the process of economic collapse.

But by dying Chavez can now escape blame for an economy set to implode on his low information electoral base. Poverty may be round the corner for most Venezuelans. But when it comes they'll blame Bush, probably literally. --Belmont Club サ Matilda He Take The Money and Ruin Venezuela

Your Say

I think Sean Penn should be the next Presidente of Venezuela. Scarlett Johanson can become his Evita.

Chavez ... yeah ... him and a bunch more be worth more dead than alive.

We need more martyrs, people of his ilk.

Hollywoodians, they can have a special section in the Martyr Hall of Fame.

So what if they blame Bush. They can die starving with hatred in their heads.

When Chávez croaks, who will be left to watch Penn's movies?
