“Fidel Castro is a Bad*ss!” Squeals Bill Maher while agreeing with Guillen
Bill Maher piles on Miami Marlin’s Ozzie Guillen!.....His defense, that is.
Ah yes, the old, the tried and "true": “he defied those Yankee bullies! He foiled their gazillion assassination attemps!...What a Badass!”
And you will never guess what else Maher touched upon!...and you will never ever guess his position on the issue!..
Why the “embargo” of course!....and he went right down the line, parroting the establishment talking points flawlessly, right down to the "ands" and 'thes" !
In expressing his viewpoint on the so-called “embargo” of Cuba —this self-promoted “feisty gadfly,” this strutting and preening “insurgent,” subserviently recites talking points handed down by the most powerful political-Media juggernaut in modern U.S. history. He’s parroting the position promoted by the following outsiders, nonconformists, free-spirits and Bohemians:
The Council on Foreign Relations, the Carlyle Group, the Congressional Black Caucus, Archer-Daniels-Midland, The Brookings Institute, the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, the entire Farm Lobby, The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Wall Street journal, The United Nations, The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, The World Council of Churches, The Congressional Hispanic Caucus and the the Vatican. Bill Maher has gotten on board with an issue that united (the late) Bill Buckley and Gore Vidal, Chris Dodd and Larry Craig, Pat Buchanan and Antonio Villaraigosa, George Will and Noam Chomsky, The Brookings Institution and the Cato Institute, the Wall Street Journal and The Nation, The U.S. Communist Party and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. All of these oppose the so-called U.S. embargo of Cuba.
What an “outspoken iconoclast! that Bill Maher! What an "outsider!"--and what a “brave and edgy!” one!
Bill Maher has a large and intrepid staff—at least he used to. After arranging my four PI gigs and after spending plenty time in ABC greenroom with some of them quaffing (FREE!!!) Heinekens, I certainly got that impression. If those folks are still around, Bill Maher should have them look up a little actual history.
(Pero fijense que tipo mas PESA’O (!!!) este Fontova! En ves de verdareramente informarnos sobre el asunto Maher/Guillen/Castro, se pone a fanfarronear sobre sus shows con Bill Maher!..para que todos sepan que el fue un invitado y todo eso!... pero que tipo mas PESA’O!)
