The Other Raoul

I hate politics, but couldn't resist this one:

CNN reports that Fidel Castro, the former Cuban president, is taking pot-shots at our new president on his blog.

I couldn’t get to his blog,, to read the article “Deciphering the Thinking of the New United States President," but did get the gist of the whole thing in a statement he released to the AP.

Referring to Guantanamo, which was leased to the U.S. by Cuba sometime in 1903 without an expiration date on the lease, he wants it back. Castro stated that “maintaining the military base on Cuban soil is against the will of our people, violating the most fundamental principles of international law."

Well, how about if we reinstate a Batista to political power in Cuba to compensate for the 1959 coup that Castro doesn’t remember is a violation of international law?

I already have a candidate in mind, Raoul G. Cantero, III (born Raoul Roberto Garcia-Cantero y Batista), the grandson of former Cuban president Fulgencio Batista, who was overthrown in 1959 by Fidel Castro. He is very qualified for the job, having experience as a former Florida lawyer and Justice of the Florida Supreme Court. It should solve at least one international injustice.

This is what you get for drinking and dictating at the same time:
