Still have hope?

According to the online version of the LA Times this morning members of the US Congressional Black Caucus met with ailing Communist Dictator Fidel Castro in Havana to explore the normalization of relations between the US and Cuba. According to the article "The aging, ailing, cigar-smoking icon Fidel Castro had three members of Congress visit with him today in Havana, which resulted in the bearded one asking, "How can we help President Obama?" In an effort to improve the relationship between Cuba and the U.S., Reps. Barbara Lee (D-Oakland), Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) and Emanuel Cleaver II (D-Mo.) were the first U.S. officials to meet with the 82-year-old former dictator since his intestinal surgery in July 2006."

Great that one of the worlds last remaining throwbacks to Communist oppression is so enamored with our President that he wants to help us. Let us hope that the help he offers doesn't include his method of dealing with political dissent. Then again maybe he just wants to jet over to DC with Kim Jong Il for a little BBQ by the rose garden. I am sure its all very innocent. You can read the entire article here.
