Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez claims he is cancer free...

This is the second time Hugo Chavez has declared himself cured of prostate cancer. He lied last time and there is an election coming up...
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.

I wish he'd do the world a favor and drop dead. Is that really asking so much?
