Home run con las bases llenas

With this title, "Hollywood Celebrates Che Guevara, but it makes no films about the Cuban resistance movement.", who needs introductions?

Heavy sight.
At. Least. One. Person. Gets. It.

PD for this former reporter's colleagues out there; this is a Pulitzer's lead:

Hollywood hotshot Benicio Del Toro is not a stand-up comic, but he seemed to be playing one earlier this month when he said he found the role of Cuban Revolution hero Ernesto Guevara, in the new film "Che," like Jesus Christ.

"Only Jesus would turn the other cheek. Che wouldn't," Mr. Del Toro explained. Right. And Bernie Madoff is Mother Teresa, only she wasn't into fraud.

More rebuttal of the same "Che-Del Toro-Sondeberg" crap can be found here, this time brought to us by Humberto Fontova, author of "The Real Che Guevara and the useful idiots who idolize him" and countless pieces on the che-subject.

Have at it.
