Saturday morning cartoon

I can’t understand what’s being said. But this Cuban cartoon harshly disses James Cason, the senior U.S. Foreign Service officer in Cuba from 2002 to 2005.

Not every word, but:
"I am the protector of absolute truth."
"Yes, I am the chosen one." (right before he grows his wings)
"Poor souls, you don't know democracy. We will help you. Everything will be like it is in (not sure, he maybe says) Florida."
Helpful policeman, "You know, blackie, that you can't vote."
Chosen one: "Won't it be wonderful?"

^ Thanks, Snarla! And welcome to my spot.

That's very helpful indeed. The "Florida" crack refers no doubt to the U.S. elections of 2000.

Like the citizens of Cuba don't wish they could cast a free ballot one day...

I know that the worms, los gusanos, is a reference to what Castro calls Cubans who left the island after the revolution. "Los Gusanos" is also the title of a novel by John Sayles, the film maker.
