"Fidel Castro Resigns As President"
Fidel Castro Resigns As President
[Were his elections as president done with verifiable paper ballots?]
I hope this doesn't cause to much trouble. Bushie will try to claim credit.
[If Bushie and Fidel were both on the same ballot, we know who would receive the majority of the DUmmie votes.]
Already, in some dank little basement office at the Heritage Foundation, some little unsung author of the conservative ascendancy is squinting at his monitor as he types, "George W. Bush's greatest achievement came in his final year in office, when he singlehandedly forced Castro from power, much as his predecessor Reagan had torn down the Berlin Wall with his teeth."
[Typed the DUmmie squingting at his monitor between the empty pizza cartons in his dank little basement.]
Given that the right has rewritten history to credit Reagan with the collapse of the USSR (something he was only nominally involved in), expect this to be rewritten as a great triumph for Chimpy.
[Wasn't it Jimmy Carter who brought about the collapse of the USSR?]
The real danger is that once the death notice is posted, some hot heads in little Havana might try a Bay of Pigs - rematch.
[Danger for a DUmmie means opportunity for others. Hee! Hee!]
That's going to be the real danger: The US, goaded by those idiots in Miami has been running interference against Castro for fifty years, Lord knows what's going to happen now. Of course, if Raul's smart, he'll only take power as an interim measure in preparation for full elections.
[As open and honest as the elections in Cuba for the past 50 years?]
I don't think the Cuban populace is ready to revolt however. There are a number of good things happening to Cuba these days. However, it the idiots in Florida that have me worried. I just know that there will be some attempt to return to Cuba.
[Worried the DUmmie.]
Even if you love US imperialism and regard the mass slaughter of Iraqis as a good thing, you can at least see that Castro did nothing remotely similar. Or are you so truly deluded that you cannot admit to even that simple fact. Comparing a true monster like Chimpy to Castro is simply an admission of blind ignorance.
[But who is leaving power voluntarily after his 8 years is up?]
Probably every sitting president we have ever had... has had more people killed then Castro-maybe just maybe- Carter is an exception
[Posted the DUmmie from the Alternate Reality.]
May the liberalization of Cuba begin, and may the oppressive communist regime crumble and freedom flourish on that wonderful island.
[May we prepare for your tombstoning ceremony.]
Hopefully the U.S. will stay out of Cuba's business. Long live the Revolution! Capitalism will hurt the environment and the people of Cuba.
[Yes, the people of Cuba definitely want to keep things as they are...NOT!]
A shame. Hasta la victoria siempre, Fidel!
[Socialismo o Muerte!]
