Everyone's a Critic, Including Fidel Castro

“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,” writes Fidel Castro, who echoes the sentiments expressed by many columnists and commentators spanning the middle to left of our politics.

As The Associated Press points out, Castro may be harboring a grudge against these particular candidates: “Castro’s comments came in a long opinion piece carried by official media two days after Republican presidential hopefuls at a debate in Florida presented mostly hard-line stances on what to do about the Communist-run island, and even speculated as to what would happen to the 85-year-old revolutionary leader’s soul when he dies.”
