I love the State Department.

I love the State Department. Or at least its spokesmen:

QUESTION: Did you hear that Castro fell?

MR. BOUCHER: We heard that Castro fell. There are, I think, various reports that he broke a leg, an arm, a foot, and other things, and I’d guess you’d have to check with the Cubans to find out what’s broken about Mr. Castro. We, obviously, have expressed our views about what’s broken in Cuba.

QUESTION: Do you wish him a speedy recovery?

MR. BOUCHER: No.

Via Andrew Sullivan. Castro certainly deserves it, and it was probably the funniest line said by a bureaucrat in history.
