Tell me quick before I faint...
...is he dead or is he ain't?
Quite uncharacteristically, Hugo Chavez has been silent for 9 days now (except for his twitter feed). Yes he's in Havana getting treatment, but that didn't silence him before.
For now the Chavez administration is practicing "government by Twitter" according to his opponent in the upcoming election, Henrique Capriles.
The incredibly named Diosdado Cabello dismissed rumors of Chavez's death saying the only dead thing he could see was Capriles' campaign!
