CODEPINK finds a difference between fascism and communism

One of the newer additions to the blogroll to the left is Blog for Cuba by our friend Kathleen. When Babalublog posted that CODEPINK plans a fun filled vacation to fidel's island workers' paradise over New Year's, Kathleen sent an email.  Kathleen asked

CODEPINK replied:
