Cuba’s Democrat party to hold summit

What a coincidence that it’ll be held on the 50th anniversary of Bay of Pigs:

A Communist Party summit set to start this weekend on the 50th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs invasion offers Cuba’s aging leaders a last hurrah to celebrate the victories of their past, and perhaps a final chance to salvage their revolution’s future.

Part pep rally, part nostalgia tour, part leadership shake-up, the Sixth Party Congress is designed to consecrate the once-unthinkable free market economic changes enacted by President Raul Castro as the country’s only path to prosperity.

Even the 79-year-old president acknowledges it will be the last such gathering under the island’s graying old guard — and they have a lot riding on its success.

The next meeting with the “graying old guard” will be held in the fourth circle of hell.
