Even Fidel Castro Finds Republican (GOP) Primaries a Exercise is Idiocy

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr. Craig @ 5:20 am

Cuba’s former president, Fidel Castro, wrote an op-ed in the state-run media today with some very harsh words about the field of American Republican candidates. “The selection of a Republican candidate for the presidency of this globalized and expansive empire is — and I mean this seriously — the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been,” he writes, according to the New York Times. (Count this as the first time in recent memory a Fidel Castro op-ed has reminded us of aBret Stephens op-ed.) Of course, he doesn’t sound any harsher than the candidates do when they talk about Castro, alternately advocating the regime’s overthrow or reassuring us he’s headed to Hell when he dies.

We’re not convinced that Castro’s “critique” is really going to hurt anyone’s chances in the Florida primary, home to many Castro opponents. Nor is it likely to show up in President Obama’s campaign literature anytime soon, but …  there you have it.
