Babaloo's Waterloos: Friday's Scheduled "Fidel is Dead" Announcement Preempted by New Video

Ain't that a bummer.

On Monday of this week, Val Prieto intimated that another "Fidel is Dead" post was in the works. He even revealed, for the first time, the methodology he uses to determine Castro's death, which entails counting the number of "Fidel is Dead" Google searches which bring visitors to his blog; and if these appear to increase during the week, the cock crows on Friday (or, rather, the horse dies). But not this Friday. Castro preempted the announcement this week and even had a laugh at Val and the other gossipmongers' expense when his obsequious interviewer, Randy Alonso, pointed out that Miami is rife with rumors of his death and that exiles "would fall from their chairs" when they saw the new video. Indeed, Val has not been able to get up from the floor to comment on Fidel's video. Of course, this is nothing unusual. Val is usually laid out on the floor on Fridays by his own admission.

I must say the old goat is probably having a good laugh at Babalu's expense. The so called dean of Cuban-americans blogs was made to look like a fool. What was that about "better to keep your mouth shut and having them think you are a a fool, than open it and confirm it". I think the propaganda aparatchiks in Cuba read Babalu' blog and wanted to make them look like they know nothing about what goes on there. Otherwise why display el Coma-andante for all to see just on a Friday? If they don't stop their baseless speculations without facts, they are going to be the laughing stock of the blogsphere.
BTW, the old goat looked very bad and his speech was slurred and incoherent. He paused a lot between sentences and seemed to repeat himself often. But they fixed him up so as to look like he is not feeble, but it showed anyway.

As always you have given me a good laugh, thanks for the visual of Val on the you say he's there a lot on one of his drunken spells.

I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall, just to see his face when they showed Castro's video, ah how the mighty tumble, blog father has been proven wrong once more, that's what he gets for reporting falsehoods, I for one had a good laugh on him.
