Fidel Emerges From His Coffin

image

Yes, he still walks the earth, this vampire.  The coma-andante emerged from his lair briefly, to let the world know that he has not yet departed for the nether regions to keep company with the Prince of Darkness and all his fellow sociopaths.

And he emerged very well dressed, to show everyone that he still looks marvelous.....

From CTV News Canada....  which --true to form -- insists on calling Fidel "ex-president" rather than "tyrant"

Cuba's ex-president Fidel Castro appears in first new photo in months

HAVANA, Cuba -- Fidel Castro was healthy and alert while speaking with a Spanish reporter about current events for 2 1/2 hours last week, the journalist told The Associated Press Monday.

A photo of the discussion appeared in official media Monday after days of speculation about the former Cuban president's health, fueled when he didn't comment publicly on Nelson Mandela's death. The former South African president was a close ally, thanks to Cuba's backing of Angolan fighters who battled forces supported by the previous pro-apartheid South African government of the 1980s.

The photo shows Castro, 87, seated and wearing a blue sweatsuit, looking intensely at writer Ignacio Ramonet and gesturing with his left hand. Ramonet and the website Cubadebate say the photo was taken Friday.

Ramonet told the AP that he and Castro discussed a wide range of topics including Mandela, Venezuelan politics and climate change and "I found him to be in excellent health and in a good mood, physically, mentally and psychologically."

    Ramonet es uno que bien baila. Perfect choice for an "interviewer" (Barbara Walters excepted).

    Nosferatu does sportswear. Adorable (if you like that sort of thing).

    "Ex-president." Never ex-dictator. And "former tyrant" is even less likely. Frauds.

    I'm sure that the interview is so edited and spliced together that it probably took hours to provide two minutes of film, you know what with castro babbling on, going off on tangents, loosing his train thought and with the spittle dribbling out of the corner of his mouth and with him acting like the senile old fart that he is. But hey, nobody in the mainstream media is going to care. They're going to take it at face value, because castro is [well you know], he's not a so-called right wing dictator. He's the former "president" of a so-called communist country that was never communist in the first place, but that doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is that he's anti-American and he said that he was a communist. So, he gets a free pass.

    Anyway, it's the end of the year, so the regime has to put a damper on our New Year's Celebration, you know, the "Next Year in Cuba" thing.

    I wonder what herd of idiots will attend his funeral?
    "Looking intensely"???? This follows the regimes narrative to make him look like he's with it, instead of out of it.
    Do not worry, there's a guy with a red suit and a pitchfork waiting for him, and he'll wait as long as it takes.

    Charles Manson also "looked intensely." The phrase need not mean a thing, hence its use.

  • asombra

    So, what did he say about Mandela's death? Surely the topic came up.

  • asombra

    There's something very seedy about an old, threadbare courtesan who won't give it a rest. Ramonet is just gross. For those who may not know, he wrote an authorized autobiography of the "ex-president," and he didn't get that gig for nothing.
