Back in the C-U-B-A

Fidel is back! And so is Hugo! As Castro continued to recuperate from intestinal surgery, the Cuban leader greeted his protege with elation as Chavez returned for another courtesy call. Fidel exclaimed, "What joy! A million thanks!" Once deemed dead by many of his detractors, the Marxist strongman emerged with renewed vigor: the eighty-year old Communist general seems ready to give his Yankee neighbor its own bout of visceral vexing. While we await a return to democracy, please send us some of your famed cigars and potent mojitas.

Weekend at Bernie's-Hugo is using Fidel like Charlie McCarthy and Edgar Bergen.  "What's that Fidel, did you say you want some cheap gas from Citgo...well, muy bien mi amigo..."
Ah, the flys gather around the cow pie, don't they?
Simon Bolivar, donde esta?

There does seem to be a resurgence in that region of the old capitalist/Commie tensions that were so prevalent during the '80's. At least, the main sponsor is "on the dust bin of history" as one great American once predicted. Please forgive my ignorance, J, but who is Edgar Bergen?

Edgar Bergen and Charlie McCarthy were a ventriloquist act from the 1930's.

Thanks, J. Dad had a Charlie McCarthy "doll": as I boy, I tried to engage in ventriloquy with little success.
