#1 For the last &#!%! time, Jeffrey Goldberg isn't an apologist for communism, or even particularly liberal. He was an Israeli prison guard, for the love of Mike! Honest - he wrote a book about it. He's a foreign-policy neocon, who usually concentrates on the Middle East.

And one of the important points in the Goldberg articles was that Castro's surprisingly spry and active for someone on the brink of death four years ago. The Fox columnist is clearly so blinkered by his spinal-reflexive (and utterly justified, mind you) hatred of Castro that he's lost all sense of proportion.

Historically speaking, Jeffrey Goldberg hasn't even been my favorite writer named "Goldberg", but he's been on a roll the last month or two.

#2 The Columnist:

Mike Gonzalez, Vice President of Communications for The Heritage Foundation, is a widely experienced international correspondent, commentator and editor. He spent 15 years reporting from Europe and Asia before leaving journalism to join the administration of George W. Bush, where he helped explain financial and foreign policy.

As a boy of 12, Gonzalez left his native Cuba with his mother and sister, fleeing the Castro dictatorship. After two years in Madrid, Spain, the family settled in Queens, New York, in 1974.

#3 Wikipedia's article on Jeffrey Goldberg. He seems a complicated man.

#4 He tried to retract his claim that the Cuban Model doesn't even work by saying he meant Capitalism doesn't even work for us anymore. I suspect he meant it the way Goldberg reported it and the second statements were backtracking but still.
