Cancer says "Totally Free" of Venezuela's Chavez ... (Spoof)
Venezuela's Chavez says "totally free" of cancer, again
CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez declared himself fully recovered from cancer on Monday, three months before an election in which he is seeking another six-year term.
"Free, free, totally free," he told reporters when asked if he was free of the disease that struck a year ago.
The 57-year-old socialist leader was first diagnosed with cancer in the pelvic region in mid-2011. He wrongly declared himself cured at the end of that year before having a recurrence of the disease in February.
But after repeated cycles of treatment in Cuba and Venezuela, Chavez is once again declaring himself fully fit at a crucial time when his health is the main wild card before the October 7 presidential vote.
Perceptions of Chavez's ability to campaign for the election, and govern afterwards, are crucial among voters in what could be one of Venezuela's tightest elections of recent times.
At a four-hour news conference that offered more evidence of Chavez's increasing energy levels, he promised to begin campaigning on the streets with a series of caravans in provincial Venezuela from Thursday.
"Now is when I'm stepping into the action. Our offensive begins right now!" said an ebullient Chavez, who disappeared for long periods during treatment over the last year but has been back dominating Venezuela's airwaves in recent weeks.

I saw this headline off of Drudge and I just thought how much fun it would be to see cancer finally ridden of the parasitic communist Hugo Chavez.
I hope you can appreciate my twisted humor. No offense to actual cancer survivors here on FR.
(FYI ... I am reluctantly siding with cancer in this one and only case.)
Doubt their next leader will be any better
A country that would elect a Chavez or an
Obamma has deep moral problems
OK look at the photo on the post and look at the photo in the article.
Fidel trick, body double? Look at the black hair.
I won’t believe it until BagdadBob declares it.
How about a “growth “joke from (really about) Ranger Randy.
Seems Ranger Randy got off from a long day of being armed and rangerous and decided to have a beer in the town bar. Randy walks in, sits down at the bar and the new bartender walks over.
As he approaches Randy, he notices a frog attached to Ranger Randy’s forehead. “Mind if I ask what happened?” said the bartender.
And that is when the frog said, “Ribit! It started off as a pimple on my but and it grew into this awful thing.”
