Patron of the Arts Alert!

I've always regarded Carole King's "singing" as something that would be swell to slit your wrists by and avoid it like the plague. It's kind of tough though - she's been around since before dirt was invented and has a certain popularity among the weepy set. Anyhow, I was amused (but not surprised) that they wheeled her out to entertain the Kool-Aid drinkers at the Donkfest. Ryne McLaren points out another reason not to be surprised:
Has been Carole King sang before last night's nominating speech. She also likes to sing for Castro, that filthy old celebrity of the American left.
And speaking of the Old Thug:
Fahrenheit 9/11 plays on state-run Cuban television.

Castro also quotes from Stupid White Men.

I'm serious, fer Chrissakes. Go read it if you don't believe me.
You know, if they could, they'd run on a platform of inviting Fidel to sleep in the Lincoln bedroom.
