Foreign leaders, going down edition..
Fidel isn’t going to rule Cuba any longer. Wow wee, I knew this day would come..but it’s not something you are ready for. He’s sick and he now admits it. From the MSNBC writeup:
“I will not aspire nor accept — I repeat I will not aspire or accept — the post of President of the Council of State and Commander in Chief,” read the letter signed by Castro and published quietly overnight without advance warning in the online edition of the Communist Party daily Granma.
Our second leader that might be noticing the writing on the wall is Musharraf of Pakistan. Can I get an amen on the election results? Lets hope no funny business takes place before the election is certified. From the NYT writeup:
Almost all the leading figures in the Pakistan Muslim League-Q, the party that has governed for the last five years under Mr. Musharraf, lost their seats, including the leader of the party, the former speaker of Parliament and six ministers.
Bush of course had something to say on both counts..however it’s so worthless I won’t be printing it here. Bush is our new Mr. Irrelevant you know.
