Breaking news in Miami

Would that be the very same exile community that worked so hard back in 2000 to keep a very young boy from his father, subsequent to the death of his mother? Pretty influential group of citizens, considering that the entire Cuban exile community, their children, and now, their grandchildren, represent oh… maybe 1/5th of 1% of the U.S. population!

(Numbers not verified, based simply on a gross calculation of approximately 275,000,000 U.S. citizens, and an estimated exile community of @ 500,000.)

Now…don’t get me wrong. I’m not a big fan of El Jefe, “maximum leader” (or whatever he calls himself these days), but did you really expect the Florida Cubans to have anything nice to say about El Jefe’s little brother???
