Good thing Hugo Chavez stepped up to the plate to replace Castro’s communist boogy man role. The U.S. should boycott Venezuelan oil. That’ll teach those bastards!

How many months now have we had to listen to stories about Castro’s demise?  Just think, when Castro dies the fatcats can go back to Cuba with their whores and gambling.  The mafia will have a southern resort and the Cubans living in Miami will finally realize that living in Miami beats living in Havana.  Then all of the bitching and whining about Castro will be finished thank goodness.  Then…the mainstream (pardon the expression) media will have to get off its ass and look for a real story.
