Pepe Billete's No-Shit Political Forecast for the South Carolina Primary

The 2016 election may be the most Miami in history – two Cuban guys and a communist.

So Pepe Billete, the city's most profane Cuban puppet, just had to get involved. Last night, the little man with the big voice tossed his half-smoked puro  into the street, stomped on it, and shuffled to New Times TV to make his predictions for tomorrow's South Carolina primary – after placing a few bets with his bookie, of course.

Being a fair and balanced marioneta, he invited both the candidates and their mouths. No surprise here – the geniuses had a lot to say.

Keep an eye out over the coming weeks. Pepe plans to be a regular commenter on this loony election.
