Overheard in Havana: Our imbecile SOB in Venezuela

A conversation overheard in Havana from Enrique Del Risco in Enrisco (my translation):

Overheard in Havana

- Let's see, refresh my memory: Why did we pick Maduro to run Venezuela?

- Because he's a graduate of Ñico López.

- Yeah, but still, why is he such a moron?

- Because he's a graduate of Ñico López.

- And what was the idea behind all this?

- Remember that phrase Roosevelt used to say about Somoza? Maduro might be a son of a bitch and an imbecile, but he's our son of a bitch and our imbecile.

- But Roosevelt never said "imbecile."

- We can consider that part our contribution to the phrase.

- Yes, but we'll have to give it a Martíesque twist. Something along the lines of "he's our banana son of a bitch and if he turns out to be an imbecile, he's our son of a bitch."

- Or to be more concise: "Our son of a bitch is an imbecile but he's ours."

- Something like that.
