The Height of Chutzpah, part 2

First it was el presidente de Méjico. Now it's ... Cuba!!!

Cuban lawmakers have passed a resolution denouncing Arizona’s new immigration law as “racist and xenophobic,” recalling an old dispute in the process: the argument that the United States’ purchase of Arizona from Mexico in the 19th century was tantamount to theft. [...] Several U.S. cities including Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego and Austin, Texas, have passed resolutions against the law or urged outright boycotts, and President Barack Obama has denounced it as “a misdirected expression of frustration.”

But the denunciation of the law by Cuban lawmakers, who called it a “brutal violation of human rights,” is sure to raise anger among U.S. backers of the law.

... what can one really say to such total and complete hypocrisy?

Meanwhile, several international reporters wanted to ask what those in Cuba's gulags thought about this. They weren't available for comment.
