Castro Retires

Fidel Castro retired publicly today saying he wouldn't pursue another presidential term. Whoopty-Freakin-Doo. I like how he words it, like he would no longer ask the Cuban citizens to elect him again. Yeah sure:

"I communicate to you that I will not aspire to or accept -- I repeat not aspire to or accept -- the positions of President of Council of State and Commander in Chief,"

I find it amusing when someone tells me that we don't need guns in our country to thwart tyrrany because we vote. I usually respond that so does Russia, China, Cuba, but that it does not always work.

The real question I have now is what murderous bastard is going to replace him for the next forty years.
