A great argument for allowing two million Cuban exiles to vote in Venezuela’s upcoming election

This is NOT the Venezuelan ambassador to Cuba, but perhaps he should replace the current one.

This is NOT the Venezuelan ambassador to Cuba, but merely three approximate facsimiles composed by a police Photoshop artist. The artist was guided by the ambassador's statements in Havana yesterday.

From ABC in Spain:

Venezuela’s ambassador to Cuba says: “To vote for Chavez is to vote for Fidel Castro too.”

Edgardo Antonio Ramirez, Venezuelan ambassador, said today in Havana that all votes cast for Hugo Chavez on October 7 will also be votes for Fidel Castro, “for peace,” and for the union of Latin America and the Caribbean. He added: “We will also be voting on October 7th for the union of the two greatest men on planet earth.”.... Fidel is a great man who has fought for – and will always keep fighting for --the survival of the human species and for respect to mother earth.”

Ambassador Ramirez also praised the Venezuelan electoral system for its “transparency, security, and cleanness, ” adding: “It is impossible to cheat in this process.”   Throughout his talk, Ramirez kept referring to Chavez’s opponent, Henrique Capriles, as “the candidate of the Pentagon.”

Ay.... Read the rest here in Castellano. (As you should know, there is no such thing as “Spanish.” Iberia has many languages, and the one imposed by the hegemonic Castilians on their Catalan, Gallego, Valencian, Asturian, Basque, and New World subalterns should never be called “Spanish.” It’s Castilian. So get your terms straight or the political correctness brigades will tape your mouth shut.  No pun intended for the man pictured above.)
