President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela loves to talk about his days as a paratrooper and considers himself the South American fighter for the Marxist Movement, but he’s too scared to debate his main presidential contender.

The Daily Telegraph of London reports that, “Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez has ruled out holding a pre-election debate with opponent Henrique Capriles, saying he would be ‘ashamed’ to measure himself against such a ‘nonentity.’”

Increasing his rhetoric in the polarized South American country’s run-up to the October 7 vote, Mr. Capriles responded that Venezuelans are getting tired of hearing the socialist leader’s barrage of insults.

According to the Telegraph, “battling a recurrence of cancer that has kept him off the street. Chavez, 57, leads most major opinion polls by a double-digit margin and officials are exuding confidence of a comfortable re-election win.”

Mr. Chavez has often called Mr. Capriles a “pig” and “loser,” instead of saying his rival’s name.
