Via the Instapundit, accusations of hypocrisy on the art of Rush Limbaugh:
Not being a cigar aficionado, I have no idea what the hell Rush is talking about, except that he took the opportunity of a visit to London to break US sanctions against importing products of Communist Cuba.
Hunh? The US embargo dictates what individuals must do in England?
Now as a democrat/democratic socialist, I make an effort not to buy items produced in countries whose governments repress free trade unions. With China seemingly manufacturing most of the world’s goods these days, that’s getting harder and harder, but I try. But I’d like to believe that even if I was a cigar aficionado, I would resist the temptation to puff on a Cuban stogie as long as the Castro regime forbids the island’s cigar workers from freely organizing and striking.
So does this mean that on the Cuban-cigar issue, I’m (shudder) to the right of Rush Limbaugh?
No, it just means you have never smoked a good cigar.
