Castro Resigns

Now here’s an earthshaking event:

MEXICO CITY — Fidel Castro stepped down Tuesday morning as the president of Cuba after a long illness, ending one of the longest tenures as one of the most all-powerful communist heads of state in the world, according to Granma, the official publication of the Cuban Communist Party.

This can’t bode well for the Republican Party in South Florida, driven as it is by the need to fight the nearby demon. Whether it really signals any change for Cuba remains to be seen, but a Cuba without Fidel could be as remarkable as an America without a Bush or Clinton in the White House.

One thought on “Castro Resigns”

  1. Cuba without Fidel isn’t interesting.

    Fidel without a Castro in power migth be.

    Cuba without Communism might hurt Republicans in Florida, yes. Cuba with a different Castro or a different Communist dictator? Not so much.
