Another day, another visit to Havana by a democratically-elected leader who should know better.
Then again ... Say hello to the perfectly groomed Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who is currently in Cuba on a much-hyped, three-day visit - the first by an head of state from Argentina in more than two decades.
And true to form, Ms Fernandez de Kirchner and her entourage have gone out of their way to ingratiate themselves with those lovable Castro brothers.
During a meeting with the president of the rubberstamp Cuban parliament, Ricardo Alarcon, the visitor “stressed the technological and scientific development reached by Cuba despite the US blockade of Cuba”.
At least that’s how the official Cuban media reported her comments, as you can see here.
Needless to say, Ms Fernandez de Kirchner has declined to meet dissidents.
