We’re getting dizzy! From Cuba “Experts”“to Cuba“Analysts”–Now they’re Cuba “Specialists!”


Surely the annals of human learning show few specimens of the race as intelligent, wise and clairvoyant.
For years they were known as Cuba "Experts." And the title worked just fine. (They were proven relentlessly and expertly wrong on everything regarding Cuba.)

Then about a month ago they became "analysts." Just last week many evolved into "scholars."

Now just this morning they've become "specialists!"

From today's Miami Herald:

“It doesn’t mean he’s being chosen to succeed Raúl, but it does mean they’re leaving the gerontocracy and opening up the aperture to younger leaders,” said Alex Crowther, a former U.S. Army colonel and Cuba specialist."

“It is true that other would-be successors appeared from time to time, but none was anointed, and none had a formal designation as the successor,” said Jorge Dominguez, a Latin American specialist at Harvard University.

It can only be called the "Cuba "Expert" Name Game," folks. So let's play it!

(Cuba) Expert, Expert, bo-Expert

(Cuba) EXPERT!
