On a visit to Cuba, the Congressional Black Caucus fell in love with Fidel Castro. Mona Charen reviews the situation. A brief excerpt:
Rep. Laura Richardson (D., Calif.) was impressed that Castro knew her name and her district. “He looked right into my eyes,” she gushed, “and he said, ‘How can we help you? How can we help President Obama?’”In Cuba, any talk-show host who criticizes Castro ends up in prison. It is a place Democrats could love.
“This is the dawning of a new day,” exclaimed Rep. Bobby Rush (D., Ill.). “In my household I told Castro he is known as the ultimate survivor.” Funny how easy it is to survive when you don’t hold elections.
