“That’s Right, WE BAD!” says Sherritt’s Ian Delaney (while sh*tting his pants in secret)

bad2bad3Cuban interim President Raul Castro (2nd
"OOH!- I'm so BAD!" Sherritt's Ian Delaney hams it up for Carlos Lage, among other Castro favorites of that moment.

From a Castro propaganda pamphleteer who published an article in Canada's Globe and Mail today attempting to lure foreign investors to partner with the Castro Mafia:

"in 1996 Delaney received a letter informing him that he and other Sherritt officials were blacklisted from the United States for violating Helms-Burton. Undaunted, Fidel Castro’s “favourite capitalist” – as he became known – framed the missive and kept it in his office until his retirement last year."

Ooooh-Ohhh! That Delaney's so COOL!..so EDGY!...so BAD!!!"

What the propaganda pamphlet doesn't mention (though, as obligatory in this type of pamphleteering, it does mention Phil Peters) is how Delaney was slipping Peters under the table money to finance his lobbying against the embargo in hopes of lifting this (apparently very disconcerting) blacklisting.

As well known hereabouts, it was Babalu's Henry Gomez who broke this fascinating story of deceit, bribery and swinishness back in 2008.

    I'm sorry, but Ted Turner IS a stupid-assed cracker.

    Look at the "general" in his faux military bling, a smirking, mousy bastard with a paunch, hideous hands and expensive glasses. Look at the bald idiot Lage, thinking he could beat the system. Look at the women of a certain age, doing their bit for prostitution, I mean revolution. And look at Delaney, whose picture is worth more than a thousand words, positively oozing venal opportunism and snake-oil salesman charm. No doubt a good time was had by all. Lord, the nausea.
