McCain wishes Castro a happy retirement ... and quick death

    "I hope that [Castro] has the opportunity to meet Karl Marx very soon."

    You stay classy, John.

    Looks like America's diplomacy efforts won't skip a beat if McCain's elected. Besides, how has wishing Castro's death worked out for America the past 40 years?

    I would never say that -- but understand the sentiment.

    Jack Nicholson's wrong about a number of things -- the qualities of Fidel and HRC, chief among them.

    Wishing for his death hasn't worked out that well. But his death will eventually come, and that will be a good thing for the human race, communist apologist notwithstanding.

    I don't disagree with you. The only positive that's come out of Castro's regime is that Cubans know how to fix old cars with the best of 'em.

    Still, publicly wishing for Castro's death does nothing but make McCain look like an asshole. I want my president to be tough, sure, but this kind of statement reminds me of "Bring 'em on."
  6. He'll apologize tomorrow.

    Great. And this guy's the front runner to win the Republican ticket. He'll do wonders for international relations.

    (and I'll still have to keep smuggling Cuban cigars across the U.S. border.)

    I'm sure the feeling is mutual on both sides.

    Not shocked in the least bit to see this after some of Castro's "reflections" writings that came out before the final one (the one in which he announced his retirement).
    Castro basically blasted McCain for an extended writing, calling him a liar and saying how dishonest men don't deserve to lead, etc., etc.
