Fidel Castro Endorses Obama

I wonder how are they gonna spin this one...


Presidential candidates usually collect the endorsements of governors, senators and aldermen. But Obama is getting the backing of thug after thug on the international scene. Castro became the latest when, in an article in the Cuban government organ Granma, he gave the Democratic front-runner the closest thing to an endorsement the communist despot has ever bestowed.

Castro called Obama, "this man who is doubtless, from the social and human points of view, the most progressive candidate to the U.S. presidency." He also oddly conceded what the effect of his praise would be: "Were I to defend him, I would do his adversaries an enormous favor."

This comes after Nicaraguan president Daniel Ortega praised Obama and his political allies as "laying the foundations for a revolutionary change" in America.
