Imagining the end of Cubazuela
While Nicolas Maduro continues to claim that the U.S.A. is trying to kill his opponent Henrique Capriles in order to destabilize Venenozuela -- a ridiculous ploy most likely suggested by Maduro's Cuban handlers when their assassination plot was discovered -- Capriles is forging ahead with his presidential campaign, undeterred by the odds against him.

Capriles has berated Maduro as a weak imitation of the late Hugo Chavez, whose death two weeks ago convulsed the country and triggered the April 14 vote. The opposition also accuses the government of failing to fight crime and control inflation.
