I typically agree with Fidel Castro very rarely, but this is a pretty on-the-money summary:

“The selection of a Republican candidate for the presidency of this globalized and expansive empire is — and I mean this seriously — the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been,” said the retired Cuban leader, who has dueled with 11 U.S. administrations since his 1959 revolution.

Also, these guys really need to stop with this stuff:

Another Republican candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, said he would authorize increased covert operations to bring down the Cuban government.

Look, the whole point of plausible deniability is that you can fucking deny it! If you tell people you’re going to do it, it’s not covert. It’s just openly breaking the law at that point. Also, it means that other countries that want to hurt America could stage some sort of false flag mission to increase tensions with Cuba. I don’t expect much from Newt Gingrich–respect for other countries’ sovereignty, certainly not–but at the very least he could stop fucking up American security, now, couldn’t he?

This really ought to be the Gingrich campaign song, if he can’t get the rights to “Crackdown” by The Clash:
