It seems that el comandante has some advice for the voters in the US. He happens to like two candidates to be part of a winning ticket in 2008. Who are his recommendations? Why Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, of course. These are castro’s candidates! (He he he) OK, I give in, I’ll vote for those two progressives, those bastions of liberalism, tolerance and compassion. Thanks, fidel!
Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro is tipping Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to team up and win the U.S. presidential election.
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.
“He” wrote? Who? Who “he”? Is his amanuensis Alarcon, Raul, who?
Castro has not appeared in public since intestinal illness forced him to hand over power to his brother Raul Castro in July last year.
He has turned to writing dozens of columns and essays, but rumors that his health is worsening or that he may even be dead have swirled through the Cuban exile community in Miami in the last two weeks.
They’ve swirled all right. Just like the stuff in his bed pan.
Castro said former President Bill Clinton was “really kind” when he bumped into him and the two men shook hands at a U.N. summit meeting in 2000. He also praised Clinton for sending elite police to “rescue” shipwrecked Cuban boy Elian Gonzalez from the home of his Miami relatives in 2000 to end an international custody battle.
“Really kind.” Thanks, Bill. I’m glad you weren’t mean to him. And my favorite paragraph, the punch-line of the article:
He said his favorite U.S. president since 1959 was Jimmy Carter, another Democrat, because he was not an “accomplice” to efforts to violently overthrow the Cuban government.
He’s my favorite, too.
OK, so let’s recap: Hillary? Check. Barack Hussein? Check. Bill Clinton? Check. Jimmy Carter? Check. Here’s a quiz for you boys and girls: What political party do all of these people belong to?
This is why I’ll never, ever, ever, never, ever, never, never vote for a Democrat.
