Useful Idiot Quote of the Day

"If you told me that Fidel loves Art Deco and wants to save it, I'd say, `Welcome, pal,' '' said Mitzi Mogul, president of the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles who said she spoke only for herself. ``I don't have to like you, but when it comes to this organization, if you're saving Art Deco, that's all I need to know.''

The organization Mogul is referring to is the International Coalition of Art Deco Societies, or ICADS, a loose association of groups dedicated to preserving Art Deco throughout the world. Apparently there's a big spat within the organization concerning the possibility of holding the 2007 World Congress on Art Deco in Havana. Anti-Cuba members are accusing pro-Cuba members of accepting handouts from the Cuban government in exchange for the meeting to take place in Havana.

Robert, this is not surprising at all. I have said it many times: these castro kiss-asses are mind-bogglingly stupid. Reread that quote with Hitler's name; would Mitzi feel the same?
