We're all Cubans now

Every day it seems, the 44th President of the United States brings change. Straight from Havana.

Gitmo suspects may be held on US soil without trial.

Ya know, at least when W was detaining people without due process, they had the decency to do it in Cuba, where such behavior is normative. We Americans could, for the most part, go on pretending America was still free.

When O first started hinting he was going to shut down our Cuban outpost, we still naively imagined it meant the "detainees" would finally be processed, charged and executed (if found guilty).


Homer (in a loud aside): "I THINK WE CAN TRUST THE PRESIDENT OF CUBA!"

Instead, everything we loathed (but pretended not to notice) about Gitmo is being moved here, to America. O is driving a tragic ending to the W comedy.

WO. Dude.

Where's you're car?

While your busy stocking up on canned beans and rice, take a last look at the free-market selection of automobiles. Pick carefully, the next one may just have to last you 50 years.

And pick soon. The new, revived G(overnment) M(otors) is sure to ramp up the quality.

But heck, look on the bright side.

Maybe little Elian can come visit again,

and at the very least, we should get a new drink.

America Libre.
