I had this very long and point by point absolute fisking of Ana Menendez’s latest editorial slapstick column but there’s one line from her “column” in particular that really speaks for itself:
The most encouraging sign of the old man’s(fidel castro’s) passing is the way it has deflated the hard-liners here.
Need I say more?
For Menendez, the death of fidel castro is encouraging not because it may precipitate some kind of change in Cuba for the people of Cuba. No. Not in the least. The most encouraging aspect is that now, perhaps, finally, those evil, intransigent, hard line Cuban exiles will finally shut the fuck up.
Ana Menendez: idiocy, hubris, condescension and disdain for her own all rolled up into one very minute and very irrelevant package.
