2009 Going Out On Ironic Note

From the Grey Lady:

If the American government really wants to advance relations with Cuba, I recommend they leave behind the conditions of internal governance that they are trying to impose on us and that only Cubans can decide, Ra??l Castro said in his assembly speech.

So, Ra??l, how about letting Cubans actually, you know, decide? No population in the history of the world has ever voted to uphold a Communist or totalitarian government in free and untainted elections, and it strikes me as unlikely that it’ll happen this time. (As far as I can remember; readers are free to point out obscure exceptions in the comments.)
