Dictator Watch - Chavez cancer edition

Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez is recovering in a Cuban hospital after cancer surgery.  In perhaps the most   ironic comments in Venezuelan history, the military told the people of Venezuela not to worry:
Venezuela's army chief said on Friday there is no threat to the nation's constitutional order as President Hugo Chavez's revelation of cancer surgery shakes the political system he has dominated since 1999.
No threat to the constitutional order is truly ironic in regards to the dictator who tried repeatedly to shred it before finally succeeding so that he could remain in power for life.  Venezuela's constitution has been in crisis since Chavez took power with the intention of keeping it forever.
