February 19, 2008

On February 19, 2008, Dictator Fidel Castro resigned from the Cuban presidency. After serving for 49 years as the leader of Cuba, he turned the reigns over to his brother Raul. Time and the natural aging process did something that ten American Presidents and every fake patriotic McCarthyistic American politician couldn’t do. It removed Fidel Castro from office. Sometimes the best way to get rid of someone is to send them a delicious, fattening cake or pie every week and let good, old heart disease and stroke work their magic. Or you can give a leader’s people someone to be angry at and stand against and never get rid of them.

I don't eat, but I've heard cakes and pies are delicious, and I really wish I could try them. Share Twisted-History, if you think I'm missing the point of this post.
