Cuba Leeway


The fact that Barack Obama finally overturned decades of bad foreign policy is really satisfying.

The fact that he managed to embarrass and utterly frustrate perennial buffoons like Lincoln Diaz-Balart, Mel Martinez, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen in the process -- well that's just the syrup on the flan.

And the Cuba Libre faction will howl, because after almost a half-century the sanctions were THIS CLOSE to working...

i'm filled with fear and giddy anticipation just thinking of how my next conversation with my mom and dad will go.

suzy: so dad, what do you think about obama's new cuba policy?
dad: communist!
suzy: mom, por fin algo cambio.
mom: comunista!
suzy: *sigh*

Did anyone else have to look up what "flan" meant?

Dang, 50 years of punishing Cubans down the drain. And just when we were winning, too.

"the syrup on the flan"... lol, I'm going to use that now in place of the icing/cake deal. Since I live in Broward, people here will actually get it. Me gusta.

Can we get honey and soapapillas instead? I'm not partial to flan.
