Obama-Castro Handshake Shakes Up the Inbreds
Earlier today at a memorial for Nelson Mandela, President Obama shook hands with Cuban president Raul Castro. Instantly, the Far Right cranked up their Outrage Machine and started transmitting. Calling all inbreds...
John McCain said “Neville Chamberlain shook hands with Hitler.”
(Whatever happened to Godwin's Law? Or does that only apply when there's a Republican in the White House?)
Somebody at DeadBart wrote:
“For those who believe in human rights and liberty, the sight of our president bounding up some stairs to energetically shake hands with Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, was more than a little unsettling — regardless of the circumstance.”
Two Florida Republicans, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Senator Marco Rubio, both lashed out at The Handshake. Ros-Lehtinen sputtered:
“It is nauseating. Sometimes a handshake is just a handshake, but when the leader of the free world shakes the bloody hand of a ruthless dictator like Raul Castro, it becomes a propaganda coup for the tyrant.”
They were at a FUNERAL, you dumbfuck.
It's not 1959 any more. Let's move on.
