Now that Fidel Castro has “resigned” from being Cuba’s president due to intestinal woes, his brother who has been the interim president since 2006 is expected to get the official title. The man in green fatigues has survived countless assassination attempts, the hostile stance of the US and many others. His speeches have elicited a million and one mixed reactions all across the globe. But throughout almost half a century of rule in Cuba, the man has stood the test of time.
Now that the octagenarian has called it quits, the “moderately greedy” Filipino politicos are wishing that the Philippine president would do the same. The veep seems to be enjoying the limelight as well, as parties are “welcoming” him left and right. People are even pairing him up with vice presidentiables.
Now that Castro’s out of the picture and our local political henchmen are calling for the president’s ouster, is it De Castro’s turn? Hmmmm…. I’m not sure the shoe fits, really. One thing’s certain, Willie Revillame will enjoy a good cigar or two if and when De Castro makes it.
