CUBA LED BY BEARDLESS MAN, REGIME CRUMBLES
What we found interesting, from Castro's official statement temporarily ceding power:
My 80th birthday, that so many thousands of people generously agreed to celebrate this coming Aug. 13, I ask you to postpone it until Dec. 2 of this year, the 50th anniversary of the landing of the Granma.
Ok, the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party, commander-in-chief of the heroic Revolutionary Armed Forces, and president of the Council of State and of the government of the republic of Cuba has the power to change his own birthday. That is so awesome. Do you think he can change other people's birthdays too? We want our to be on Christmas. No, wait, we want to be the oldest person in the world.
Now that Fidel's a Sagittarius, we're gonna have to exchange his birthday present. (RedState recommends Bacardi.)
