ESPN Writer Fired For Referring To Hugo Chavez' Newest Tumor As a "Eggroll-Stuffing Inscrutable Confucian"

I don't even know what that means.

But the actual news is that Hugo Chevez has another tumor.

Hugo Chávez confirmed Tuesday that he traveled to Cuba for medical tests, where doctors found a new lesion that will require surgery to remove.

"The test in Havana found a lesion in the same spot where the other tumor was removed one year ago," Chávez said on state television.

We can root for cancer to beat this tyrant or that one, but the sad fact is that tyranny is a stable form of government, in the sense that it's stable precisely because it's already as low as it can fall.

When you've fallen from the street, into the gutter, and then into the cesspit, you're "stable." Absent some vigorous effort, you'll remain in the cesspit, and die there.

It's liberal democracy which is unstable -- and must be protected, lest it take the natural course of a tall, graceful structure and crash to earth due to erosion and gravity.

But one tyrant's death will more than likely beget another tyrant. The tyrant is dead; long live the tyrant.

If Obama had a lick of brains or reverence for America, he'd bear this in mind as he increasingly relies upon claims that the President's political needs trump the Constitution.
