Hugo Chávez recently got some attention for insulting Barack Obama, so naturally Fidel Castro had to wobble to his feet and prove that he's still the cream of the outrageous Latin-American ruling-class crop. And the roughly Mr. Burns-aged autocrat began to offer his thoughts on the GOP race…
"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," he wrote, according to The Associated Press.
You mean to tell me the Republicans have lost the radical communist revolutionary voting bloc? Fidel, you're turning my world upside-down.
Also, Castro, you're just wrong. This primary season has been anything but a celebration of ignorance. Yes, Rick Perry bragged about graduating near the bottom of his class a few times. Yes, Herman Cain said that thing about Uzbeki-beki-beki-stan-stan. And, yes, Michele Bachmann was Michele Bachmann.
But those people are long gone. All that's left now is a guy who thinks Bain Capital is a real person and another guy who thinks asking his second wife for an open marriage makes him normal.
Plus two other guys who aren't going to win.
