Leave it to liberals to walk away from an interview with a despotic dictator who just insulted their country feeling all giddy with the hope of change. I emphasis the words hope and change because they seem to symbolize that ambiguous and nondescript feeling that led these liberals to vote for Obama even though they either knew nothing about the man, or what they did know was not enough to overcome their overwhelming desire for hope and change.
One of the poster children for the mindless liberal glitterati, Sean Penn, conducted an interview with the crown prince of Cuba for The Nation. As if sending biased and dedicated leftist journalists was not enough, The Nation decided to send a biased and dedicated leftist actor who has shown that his Jeff Spicoli character was closer to his own life than art.
HAVANA (Reuters) – Cuban President Raul Castro is open to meeting U.S. President-elect Barack Obama on neutral ground to try to resolve the island’s four-decade-old feud with Washington, according to an interview with a U.S. magazine.
The interview for The Nation was conducted by U.S. actor Sean Penn, who traveled to Havana after meeting Cuban ally Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and before Obama won the U.S. presidential election on November 4.
“You asked if I would accept to meet with (Obama) in Washington. I would have to think about it. I would discuss it with all my comrades in the leadership,” Castro tells Penn in the interview for a December 15 issue published on its website.
Jeff Spicoli Sean Penn may have come away with a feeling of giddiness that the US may finally get along with its despotic, murdering, slave trading, oppressive, dictatorial neighbor to the south, the crown prince has a different idea of how this historic and monumental meeting should end.
“Perhaps we could meet at Guantanamo,” Castro says, referring to the bay where the U.S. maintains a naval base, which Cuba considers a violation of its sovereignty.
“We must meet and begin to solve our problems, and at the end of the meeting, we could give the president a gift … we could send him home with the American flag that waves over Guantanamo Bay.”
Sure, it may be true that the prince just basically told
Spicoli Penn, and all Americans, “don’t let the door hit you on the ass on the way out,” but old Jeff Sean just sparked up another doob and proclaimed to his publicist, “I’m so wasted!”
