Useful Idiots Caucus

Six members of the Congressional Black Caucus traveled to Cuba last week and were delighted with their reception. They met with Raúl Castro for four hours (including dinner). Three lucky members of the delegation were even entertained by Fidel at his home. As the Miami Herald reported, the representatives found Castro to be “very engaging, very energetic . . . very talkative.” Imagine. The dictator known for his five-hour speeches. Who could have guessed?

Rep. Laura Richardson (D., Calif.) was impressed that Castro knew her name and her district. “He looked right into my eyes,” she gushed, “and he said, ‘How can we help you? How can we help President Obama?’”

“This is the dawning of a new day,” exclaimed Rep. Bobby Rush (D., Ill.). “In my household I told Castro he is known as the ultimate survivor.”
