The Same Old Salsa
My friend Bettina Inclan passed on a link to this video, and I clicked on it, expecting Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) to rant angrily about Cuba policy, like he does every single time he comes to the floor. And behold! (Watch after the jump.)
This sort of rhetoric is always fun but it’s worth pointing out how irrelevant Diaz-Balart’s position has become. He’s represented the heavily Cuban parts of Miami since 1992, and in 2008 he watched President Obama win 49 percent of the vote there while carrying the state of Florida. The president really has nothing to fear from remaking American policy with Cuba, and the Castro-obsessed south Florida members of Congress know this, so expect more anger coming from there.
