We had expected at least some of the Babalunians to abandon the ship of their disgraced chivato leader. Instead, they are actually enlisting new recruits, which is not as remarkable as the fact that there are actually new recruits to enlist. Not hapless fantomas whose fate by now is in the hands of Babalu's Veterans Committee (composed of George). Good luck to him.
The new inductee is Sr Cohiba, Henry's rational partner at Cuban American Pundits (CAP). At 2:39 AM appeared Sr Cohiba's first post. It was a test. Fifteen minutes later appeared Henry's announcement welcoming him to Babalú's "magnificent cadre of writers." His anti-Obama writings at CAP are commendable and stand in sharp contrast to Henry's hissy fits about John McCain (which are becoming less frequent lately). Babalú certainly needs a strong advocate for John McCain to clear the mess that the "political animal since the age of 5" has made there. Sr Cohiba is also a lawyer. And Val may need one of those soon, too.
