Awesome. Scott McClellan, the Mouth of Sauron, apparently said today, in response to Fidel Castro's offer of help for Katrina victims, that the U.S. wishes Castro would offer freedom to his people.

This reminds me. There's a legend that when the Moscow subway was completed in the 50s the Soviets invited a team of engineers and architects from the West to check it out. It was awesome: well-planned, beautiful, big, everything. Finally, a visitor from the U.S. said "this is incredible! Better than any i've ever seen! I do have one question, though: where are all the passengers?" The Soviet host snapped back: "But, but, but IN THE SOUTH YOU HAVE LYNCHING!"
