He Lives! HE LIVES!

Nightmare in Little Havana, the undead Fidel lives!

Contrary to the latest round of rumors, very-much alive Fidel rose from his death-bed and penned an article in Cuba's Communist-run newspaper, Granma International to weigh in on American politics.

Fidel took a shot at the Cuban-American voting bloc in Florida and their ever-increasing influence in presidential prospects. With special focus on Democratic presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois, Fidel writes:

Today, talk is about the seemingly invincible ticket that might be created with Hillary for President and Obama for Vice President. Both of them feel the sacred duty of demanding “a democratic government in Cuba”. They are not making politics: they are playing a game of cards on a Sunday
And by bringing up the disputed 2000 presidential election and how Batista's loyal henchmen (loyalists to the former U.S.-backed repressive Cuban dictator) had a hand in it, Fidel also succeeded in scoring a rhetorical point on "virtue at a distance."
In the United States, you can have a minimum of votes and still become President. That is what happened to Bush. Having a majority of electoral votes and losing the Presidency is what happened to Gore. For that reason, the State of Florida is the prize everyone aspires to, because of the presidential votes it provides. In the case of Bush, an electoral fraud was also needed; for this, the first Cuban emigrants, who were the Batista supporters and the bourgeois, were best masters.
