Birds of a Feather…

Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, who has come back from the dead so much that he has a cameo in Rob Zombie’s remake of “Halloween,” has essentially endorsed Hillary Clinton for president, and Barack Obama for vice-president.

This should help bring home the remaining 1% of the Hollywood leftist wacko commie-hugging voters who remain undecided:

Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro is tipping Democratic candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama to team up and win the U.S. presidential election…

…”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.

Is anybody here old enough to remember a day when getting a tip from a communist dictator could actually be harmful to your campaign? Now it can help shore up certain voting blocs in America.

This isn’t an endorsement per se, but close. Castro wouldn’t so advise Hillary if he thought she was going to be a threat to him she’s elected — and if he remains on the north side of the grass for the forseeable future. If Fidel isn’t dead by January 2009 he might even be looking forward to a night in the Lincoln Bedroom. Hillary still has no word yet on who Kim Jong Il, Hugo Chavez and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will endorse. Fingers crossed!

The story also quotes Castro as saying that his favorite U.S. president to deal with was Jimmy Carter, but we already knew that. Jimmah still has a ball gag and leather hood he got as a gift from Castro back in ’78 which bears the inscription, “Thanks for being my bitch — Fiddy”

Update:

Somebody should send Castro one of these — the Hillary nutcracker. Order yours today:

How Do You Say "Perky" in Farsi?

The suits at the CBS Evening News are determined to solve their ratings woes one way or another:

One year after Couric jumped from NBC’s “Today” to CBS in a big-money talent deal, the “Evening News” anchor is embarking on a high-risk tour of Iraq and Syria to revive the broadcast…

…The Pentagon has advised CBS News to keep details of Couric’s itinerary vague, but she will co-anchor “Evening News” live from both Iraq and Syria next week after several days spent reporting in the field.

CBS News complied with the Pentagon’s request to keep Katie’s itinerary vague, saying only that “Katie will be staying at the Babylon Hotel, about ten miles from downtown Baghdad on the banks of the Tigris, in room 332.”

Things That Make Ya Go 'Hillary'

Six members of the Paw family, who live in this San Francisco house near the airport…

…have donated $45,000 to Hillary Clinton and $200,000 to Democrat candidates since 2005. The head of the house is a mail carrier and owns a gift shop.

Oh, and a wealthy New York businessman once listed the above abode as his home address even though it isn’t clear if he ever actually lived there.

Hmm.

“Nothing to see here… please disperse! Nothing to see here!”

U.S. Military Expresses Regret for Great Blasphemous Balls of Fire

Another day, another apology:

The U.S. military in Afghanistan on Monday expressed regret for a publicity campaign aimed at winning hearts and minds that ended up offending scores of Muslims. U.S. troops on Friday dropped dozens of free footballs for soccer-mad Afghan children from helicopters in an area of southeastern Afghanistan, all marked with flags of various countries.

But the balls depicted the Saudi Arabian flag, which features the Islamic declaration of faith and includes the names of Allah and the prophet Mohammed.

The idea of kicking something bearing their names is considered deeply offensive to Muslims.

No word yet on what was contained in the “expression of regret” from the U.S. military that will be found deeply offensive, but I’m sure there’s something in there.

Has anybody ever apologized for all the terrorist attacks? I’m just wondering. Nah, that’s okay, first let’s take care of the soccer ball thing. First things first.

Senator's Career Stalled

From the “Things I learned today” file:

Illinois Republican Senator Larry Craig taught me never to tap my foot while in a men’s room stall at an airport. Why? Because, well, somebody like Illinois Senator Larry Craig might be in the next stall.

I don’t really need to worry about this, as my feet don’t even touch the ground while perched atop the 4-foot stack of toilet paper piled on the seat, but this is good information to have nonetheless. You can learn a lot from a politician.

Just last year, a blog “outed” Craig, which he denied. Technically though, if you’re in a stall, you’re not “out” — this nuance will I’m sure be included in the Senator’s press release in the morning.

Monday's Column: Hillary Thinks Her Voters are Brainless

My column today at WorldNetDaily is on some comments that Hillary Clinton made recently pertaining to how another terrorist attack would actually help Republicans in the upcoming election.

The implications are many, and I conclude that pretty much all of them lead to the fact that Hillary believes her voters are brain-dead morons and treats them as such. It’s not a good way to go about winning an election — unless of course it’s actually true.

Give a read to “Stupid is as stupid votes” for more.
