  • asombra: McGovern looks like he’s “tarado,” and then some.

  • asombra: Just as women shouldn’t wear certain things after a certain age, dictators shouldn’t run around in military costume...

  • asombra: I don’t think I’ve ever seen Fidel look so Latrine as in this photo. Instant classic.

    Cuba has its own version of the Liberty Bell, called "la campana de La Demajagua." It's associated with the start of the first War of Independence in 1868 and the Cuban George Washington, Carlos Manuel de Cespedes. The bell was kept in its original location, Oriente province, but in 1947 a group of Havana University students, including a very young Fidel Castro, stole it and brought it to Havana as part of a political stunt (the bell was eventually returned to its home). Fidel, of course, was looking for notoriety, as always. Some people have referred to the bell incident as "el primer robo de Fidel Castro."

    Here's the young monster, desperate for his close-up, posing with the bell:

    So you see, Mariela is just following family tradition: posing with anything that will get attention.
