"I was Chairman Mao's dog. What he said to bite, I bit."
-- Jiang Qing (1914-1991), pseudonym of Chinese dictator Mao Zedong's last wife, also known as Madame Mao during her role in the radical political alliance known as the "Gang of Four."
Over the weekend -- and marking Cuban Independence Day (May 20th) -- marches and demonstrations were held on behalf of the Ladies in White and Cuba's pro-democracy movement throughout the world, from Chicago to Milan, Buenos Aires to Paris.
In a demonstration in front of the Cuban Embassy in Oslo, Norway, a Castro regime official came out, began shouting insults at the demonstrators and physically bit the hand of a young woman, Alexandra Joner, who was taping the event.
Obviously, Chairman Castro said bite.
