Okay, I have a theory that President Obama agreed to recognize Cuba just to piss off Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.
It worked like a fifty dollar hammer on a greased nail.
They both swooned, clutched their chests, and little spittle things came out of the sides of their mouths. It was adorable!
Hell, we forgave Japan in less time than we forgave Cuba.
But, the one I enjoyed the most is Good Ole Tom DeLay. We have surrendered!
“This is surrender,” DeLay said. “This is a president who is a socialist to begin with reaching out to his socialist friends and opening up relationships with one of the most oppressive regimes in the world. The only worse one I can think of right now is North Korea.”
Really? North Korea? That’s the best you can do?
Now, I wouldn’t find this such a big deal if not for this.
2005, Time Magazine —
Arguing against loosening sanctions against Cuba last year, DeLay warned that Fidel Castro “will take the money. Every dime that finds its way into Cuba first finds its way into Fidel Castro’s blood-thirsty hands…. American consumers will get their fine cigars and their cheap sugar, but at the cost of our national honor.”
Tom DeLay / Honor. That right there is the only time you will ever see those words together.
