Longtime readers of this blog will be quite familiar with race-baiting Democrat Rep. Diane Watson of California. She attacked Ward Connerly for marrying a white woman. She bragged about Washington, D.C. being a "chocolate city." She polluted the Hurricane Katrina aftermath with race card-playing nonsense. Thanks to KABC, there's audio of Watson heaping praise on...

And the award goes to...the Castro sycophants of the Congressional Black Caucus. Oh. Crikey.

Henry Louis Gomez at the indispensable Babalu blog (which was recently honored by the White House) provides a handy score card to help you grade the MSM's Cuban revolution pieces. The AP... Read More
A group of dissident Cuban bloggers has been planning a gathering for December 6. Fidel Castro and his thugs are not happy.

Up with capitalism!
Yesterday, I noted the Che chic decor at Barack Obama's campaign office in Houston. Where the hell does someone go to buy one of those things? Why, the CHEstore, of course! "For all your revolutionary needs:" Also selling now on eBay with a starting bid of $5.49... Three chee
Dummy.
The Dem debate is on commercial break. So, take a look at the latest Fidel Castro official photos and tell me: Real or wax?

Henry Gomez at Babalu Blog led an anti-socialist blogburst this week to counter Michael Moore's anti-American, pro-Cuban health care crockumentary.
