Castro "Resigns"

Actually, the official term is that Castro "will not seek reelection". I love how dictators choose "not to seek reelection". How very gracious of him.

This story represents the traditional media spin on Castro's time in office. They are quick to point out how he's outlasted US Presidents and how Cuba has "free healthcare". However, as usual, they are slow to point out the human rights nightmares and the overall brutality.

Unfortunately, my fear is that his brother, Raul, will be much worse. Michelle Malkin has a great piece covering all the related Castro angles.

A must read for all.
