The WaPo continues to lick Castro's boots

The left-wing mainstream media's love affair with Fidel Castro and his murderous communist regime shows no signs of abating even though he has likely been dead for some time. The Washington Post shows where their priorities lie:

HAVANA, Feb. 24 -- Fidel Castro's brother, Raúl, was named president of Cuba on Sunday, preserving a nearly half-century socialist dynasty that brought free schools and health care to all Cubans as well as political repression.

Wherever there is a jackboot stomping on a human face there will be a well-heeled Western liberal to explain that the face does, after all, enjoy free health care and 100 percent literacy.
