Dear Mr. Preznit: let me introduce you to something called "Irony"

According to the New York Times, Preznit Bush is set today to announce new strategeries in connection with the impending death of Axis-of-Evil honorable mention member Fidel Castro and the resulting power shift in Cuba.

Among the preznit's bullet points: "demands for free and transparent elections, and the release of political prisoners", along with a return of Cuban political power to "the people".

Much like the administration's recent call for Russia to cease its consolidation of power in a single executive and allow for more policy control to reside in its elected legislative body
("'I think there is too much concentration of power in the Kremlin. Everybody has doubts about the full independence of the judiciary. There are clearly questions about the independence of the electronic media and doubts about the Duma,' said Rice, referring to the Russian parliament. 'In any country, if you don't have countervailing institutions, the power of any one president is problematic for democratic development,' Rice told reporters"),
this is obviously a case of the pot calling the kettle "a black, concave kitchen implement, capable of holding liquids, with one or more handles, typically used for heating soup, stew or other liquids on a stove-top".

Castro may or may not be an evil dictator, but Dear Leader Bush is certainly, demonstrably, a hypocritical gasbag who needs to remove the beam from his own eye prior to casting stones through the window of his glass house.
