…an island on the net without a bearded dictator
That’s what I said…

What still gets me is how a delusional Argentine asshole could ever get to be the #2 man in Cuba, which he was for a time. Yes, he was totally Fidel’s bitch, meaning he was absolutely no threat and no doubt served Fidel’s purposes, but the very idea of it is so completely inappropriate, to put it VERY mildly, that it’s still mindboggling.
–“…how a delusional Argentine asshole could ever get to be the #2 man in Cuba,….the very idea of it is so completely inappropriate, to put it VERY mildly, that it’s still mind boggling.”
What’s even more ‘mind boggling’ is how two assholes from Cuba could be #1 and #2 for 55 years without end in sight!!!!
It would be mind-boggling under normal circumstances that an Argentine asshole [you forgot to add, vagabond, moocher, inept, charlatan, sociopath and hygienically compromised] would become 2nd in command in Cuba, but that’s if we don’t take castro’s psyche into consideration.
If there is anyone in the world that hates Cubans, its castro. He has never felt Cuban. To him, Cuba was simply a steppingstone to satisfy his insatiable and obscene megalomania. He wanted to humiliate and bring Cubans down. What better way to humiliate Cubans and especially Cuba’s proud aristocracy than to put that South American piece of shit as 2nd man in power in Cuba? Like the roach that he was, Che who was made Minister of Finance started immediately to dismantle Cuba’s economy and not necessarily because he was doing it out of design, but rather because the pompous piece of crap was holding a job that was totally over his head. He even signed the Cuban peso [that was formerly equal to the American dollar] with “Che”. What type of disrespect is that? Of course, castro didn’t care, because he never loved Cuba. So, no, considering the piece of shit that castro himself was, its not surprising that che was made second in command.
Well, yes, Ray, Che’s rise was purely Fidel’s doing because it suited him, and I’m sure Fidel never saw him as more than a useful tool and glorified minion (which Che was). However, the appalling impropriety of it remains–though no, Fidel didn’t give a shit, because the only thing he cared about was that it worked for him. It’s another instance, as you pretty much stated, of Fidel’s “otherness,” of his aberrant and totally self-centered personality. Elevating a foreign adventurer to highly influential positions he was completely unfit for was an insult to both the Cuban people and common sense, but I expect Fidel got a kick out of it, because it gratified his ego and his perversity. Besides, we should not forget how ga-ga foreigners like the despicable Jean-Paul Sartre went over Che, and Fidel was always about working the PR/marketing angle, Cuba’s dignity be damned.
