CNN poll - Ché as 'freedom' fighter?

Ché’s main legacy is his contribution to establishing the Cuban prison state.
Oddly, but not surprisingly, 42% of CNN respondents interpret this as fighting for "freedom".
On second thought, given it was a CNN poll, perhaps we should be surprised it wasn’t 90% .

Is this any surprise when most of the people answering that poll got their knowledge of Che from movies like "The Motorcycle Diaries" and "Guerrilla?"

Hollywood loves a murdering socialist "revolutionary."

Exactly, Reid. The lame-brained socialists (is there any other kind?) never fail to idolize a murderous commie.
