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”


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