60 More Years of Castro?

Liberals, who have a nasty habit of playing apologist for leftist dictators like Castro, often praise Cuba's health care system as a reason why we should be tolerant of his totalitarianism. After all, in Cuba, the health care is free, they don't have uninsured people like here in the US. Of course, Cubans are risking thier lives every day to try to escape this wonderful system, but never mind that, free health care! Not only is Cuba's health care free and far superior to our own, but it has enabled Fidel to extend his life to 140!

Cuban President Fidel Castro, who turns 80 this year, enjoys vibrant health and will live to 140, his chief doctor said. Doctor Eugenio Selman-Housein, who heads Castro's medical team, denied that the longtime leader has Parkinson's disease, as the CIA reportedly believes.

Hmm...the Nazi's wouldn't admit Hitler had Parkinson's either.

"Every day they invent a new one," Selman-Housein said. "He will live 140 years."

Castro's health, once a taboo subject in the communist-led island, has become a topic of discussion since he fainted in public in 2001 and slipped and fell before television cameras in October 2004. Castro, who quit smoking his trademark cigars in 1986, has led Cuba since 1959. He turns 80 on August 13.

What luck! The Cubans get to have the same president for 107 years! With no opposition to muck things up, the Cuban people must be thrilled.
