While Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were trying to outdo each other, during this week’s debate, over the issue of how quickly they’d pounce on the opportunity to meet with the new (but similarly murderous and communist) Cuban dictator, Raoul Castro (brother of Fidel), John McCain made it clear that he’s “hoping that he has the opportunity to meet Karl Marx very soon”.
For those of you who are thinking, “Why would he want Castro to attend a rock concert?” (and I KNOW there are some of you who are), that’s the wrong Marx. That would be Richard Marx. And despite not having made an album in awhile, he is not dead yet.
McCain also provided yet another reason why Barack Obama is not only a dumdumb, but also dangerously naive:
“So Raul Castro gets an audience with an American president, and all the prestige such a meeting confers, without having to release political prisoners, allow free media, political parties, and labor unions, or schedule internationally monitored free elections,” McCain said.
“Senator Obama says he would meet Cuba’s dictator without any such steps in the hope that talk will make things better for Cuba’s oppressed people.
Hillary Clinton at least acknowledged that she would expect to see some clear changes in Cuba before she rewarded the new guy with a meeting. But I’m sure the new Cuban dictator would just give Obama whatever he asks for because, you know, Obama is a nice guy with a warm, welcoming smile. And he says “please”, which is the magic word.
Update: Raoul says that although he may now be president, Fidel is still “commander in chief”. Aww, how touching. *sniff* Looks like Obama had best start sending those magical vibes of his down to Cuba, because nothing seems to be changing on its own down there anytime soon.
