Quote of the day

From the Cuban Catholic Church’s magazine Espacio Laical, a denouncement of the acts of repudiation staged against Yoani Sanchez upon her arrival in Brazil. After reading this, you are left wondering if they are actually upset the protests will make the Castro dictatorship look bad, or were they just being “ironic” (via Penúltimos Días – my translation):

“Acts of this nature are an assault against the dignity of the person attacked, against the civility of Cuban political culture, and against the credibility of the very revolution these groups claim to defend.”

  1. Oh, I get it now. Ortega’s big on “cultural level,” so they must mean that Cuban “political culture” is a one-party deal because only that party has a sufficiently high cultural level. Sounds reasonable to me, ironically speaking.

  2. Hey, what if the Castro regime has been using irony all along? What if we’ve all missed it completely, for decades? What if it’s all been a monumental practical joke, of sorts, and we’re all out to lunch? Geez, that’d be embarrassing, no?
