Stalin's Doctor Probably Told Him The Same Thing

Castro’s doctor is at it again, repeating his annual statement that Castro will live to be 140. (Via Drudge, whose photo of the rapidly aging dictator belies his doctor’s absurdities.)

As I wrote right around this time two years ago, if I was the personal physician to a murdering communist dictator and had a wife or family I wanted to protect, I’d probably say stuff like that, too.

(As to what Stalin was planning to do to his doctors, shortly before–mercifully for the world–dying, click here.)

Update: HehTM.
