The 2008 Award Winner for Cephalorectal Briton Goes to James Robbins of the BBC for His Hagiography of Fidel Castro

To Fidel, don't let the door smack your ass on your way out. To Raul, your time is almost up, too. To Cuba, as long as you let a Castro sit atop your government, you won't be free. To James Robbins of the BBC, what the hell are you thinking?

That murderous thug has done more to spread misery than few others over the past 50 years, yet you give him a send-off worthy of Thatcher, or Reagan, or Havel. Disgust doesn't even begin to describe my reaction to the words you spew during your video tribute to Fidel.

What's wrong with you gits at the Beeb?

Is it just that you guys hate the USA so much, that any enemy of the USA equals a friend to the Beeb?

Also, I know it may seem odd to be giving out year-end awards in mid-February, but certain statements are so unlikely as to be topped, that I feel safe in handing out the hardware a bit early.
