Babalu has been all over the trip to Cuba by members of the Congressional Black Caucus. Some terrifically idiotic quotes have come out of the CBC’s spring break:
Rep. Laura Richardson: “He [Fidel Castro] listened. He said the exact same thing as President Obama said."
Rep. Barbara Lee: “It was quite a moment to behold [i.e., meeting Castro]”
Rep. Bobby Rush: “It was almost a religious experience. When I bent down to kiss Fidel’s ass, I could see an image of the Reverend Jeremiah Wright in the crinkles of cellulite. I can now say that I know with certainty what the odor of sanctity smells like.”
Ok, I made up that last one. But it's not all that implausible.
