***BREAKING NEWS***
Esteban Lazo named new president of communist Cuban parliament

Cuban dictator Raul Castro has named politburo member Esteban Lazo as the new president of communist Cuba's parliament. Lazo, a youthful and sprightly 68-year-old, fits right in with the Castro dictatorship's young bloods, a vivacious cadre of forward looking septuagenarian and octogenarian young bucks full of energy and determination to take Fidel Castro's revolution into the 21st century.

DIARIO DE CUBA has the report (in Spanish).

    I have to post this somewhere, so this is it. I encourage everybody to visit this website and leave your comments:

    The Communists are flocking there to leave their comments, so you need to balance them out (yes, it's like Wikipedia argument, but do it anyway).

    You can bet this is a good Negro. Dark, too, all the better for show. This is, of course, the new token to replace the late Juan Almeida. His real power is nil, but that’s beside the point. Massah only “empowers” Negroes that know their place. Almeida always knew his, and Lazo, while reportedly more primitive (as his Amin-esque looks suggest), is known for his Castroite orthodoxy and will not disappoint Massah.

    Nobody in Cuba thinks much of Lazo's talents, assuming he has any besides political correctness, so this appointment could be seen as a kind of "affirmative action." However, white guilt has nothing to do with it; this is pure, cynical calculation and strategic maneuvering. If foreign useful idiots want to read racial egalitarianism into this (and they will), that's a bonus, but they're still idiots, and being played as such.
