  • asombra: There’s a misspelling on that plaque. It should have read “Esta es tu caca, Fidel.”

  • asombra: Don’t worry. Castro, Inc. knows what it’s doing, and it knows its public.

  • asombra: Either these people are pitiful idiots or they think everyone else is.

  • asombra: Because, you know, Reuters cares SO much about Cubans, so it really “feels their pain.” Just like Clinton did.

  • asombra: Well, at least Batista didn’t run around in military garb, which he was more entitled to do than either Castro tyrant.

Win a trip to Hell !!!!! Enjoy watching the torments of the damned in air-conditioned comfort !!!

Hey, Mildred, let's enter this contest!  Yee -hah, hot diggetty-dawg.....  Cuba, here we come.

What's that you say, Mildred?  It's too poor and depressing?  Too hot?  Naaah.  Just think of it as a chance to visit Hell and gawk at the damned.  Imagine the bragging rights we'll earn.  Best of all,  we'll be shielded from the suffering.

...and the natives are so enchanting!

    It is rumored that Eusebio Leal, Mr. Old Havana and a major Castro minion, has "encouraged" placing these "typical" black Cuban women with huge cigars in prime tourist areas. Tourists love them, apparently (such a great photo op, obviously). Mr. Leal, btw, was one of the signers of the 2003 public letter supporting the execution of three black Cuban men for trying to escape from Massah Fidel's plantation.

    Sweepstakes consolation prize: a vacation in Syria.

    But the, uh, Lady in Red isn't a fake or anything. All Cuban women look like that.

    They also have the black men with the cigar for "tourism" pics $5.00 gets you a memorable photo you can throw away once you land in Wisconsin, or Arkansas.

    Maybe we should all enter, and if one of us wins, hold a press conference and say we insist on designing our own tour: visiting the imprisoned journalists, going to the homes of the Ladies in White, and bringing aid to the bloggers. Then when we don't get permission to do this, we can rip up the tickets and throw them back at the organizers with some choice words.
