Fidel Castro Endorses Hillary - Gives Campaign Advice

I have no doubt that Cuba's dictator of nearly 5 decades is an expert on democracy, so Democrats should certainly take his advice and nominate a Hillary/Obama ticket.

No, I am not making this up.

Clinton leads Obama in the race to be the Democratic nominee for the November 2008 election, and Castro said they would make a winning combination.

"The word today is that an apparently unbeatable ticket could be Hillary for president and Obama as her running mate," he wrote in an editorial column on U.S. presidents published on Tuesday by Cuba's Communist Party newspaper, Granma.

Since the Democrats have already blown Florida off, there's no reason for Hillary not to post this on her campaign website. After all, she does need to repair her image with the Daily Kos crowd who are still seething at her declaration that the surge is working.

Is the Cuban Communist Party's newspaper really called "Granma?"

Yep, Granma was the name of the yacht that took Castro and his guerillas from Mexico to Cuba in 1956 to fight against the Batista government. I seem to remember the guy had named the boat after his grandmother.

Is this part of the vast right wing conspiracy? Did Karl Rove put Fidel up to this?

Hey, that cann't be right. Castro died. Of course that amazing health care system could be keeping him going.

Raul Castro via Baghdad Bob, has announced that Fidel is fine and filming the revolutionary remake of "Weekend at Bernies", called "Weekend at Fidel's". Starring Fidel as himself, Jane Fonda as his girlfriend and Sean Penn as Che Gueverra.
