Obviously, Castro hasn’t gotten the memo. Obama is one of your own.. ;-)

I can tell you exactly what happened here. After BO was elected, Castro tried to contact him him through a third party, and was snubbed. End of Castro’s admiration.

Is Castro dead or alive? I’ve lost track.

He's just trying to make The One™ seem more palatable to patriots with a smokescreen.

Yes, his complete name is Fidel Castro Odinga. He is the eldest son of Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga and a first cousin to Barack Hussein Obama. The late Obama Sr. was the prime minister’s maternal uncle. Although Obama Sr. was educated at Harvard and Odinga in East Germany, uncle and nephew were friends and political allies.

Today it is Barack Obama and Raila Odinga who have formed a transcontinental political alliance. In fact, Senator Obama, in an unprecedented breech of protocal, went to Kenya in 2006 to campaign on his cousin’s behalf in that country’s presidential election.

Raila lost the election when a secret pact was revealed with Kenya’s Muslim Brotherhood to institute sharia law in all the country’s courts in exchange for their support of his candidacy. This is all the more remarkable because it is Christianity (66%), not Islam (10%), which is the largest religion in Kenya, and English common law, not the Koran, which is the basis for its legal system. Or, perhaps, it is not so remarkable, after all, since both the Odingas and Obamas belong to the 10 percent.

Although not an observant Muslim, Odinga does represent Moammar Qaffafy’s oil interests in southern Africa, which may better explain his willingness to tranform his non-Muslim country into a Muslim state as Idi Amin did in Uganda when he was the recipient of the colonel’s largesse 30 years ago.

Odinga’s connection to Barack Obama, however, has proved more useful in his political career than Qadaffy’s billions. It was in the expectation of Obama’s election as president, and to ingratiate himself to him, that Odinga’s political rival offered him the premiership as a consolation prize.

When Prime Minister Odinga named his son “Fidel Castro,” he broke with Kenyan tradition as he should have named him for the boy’s grandfather Oginga Odinga (the Kenyan “Fidel Castro”), a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary who led an unsuccessful coup to topple the government of Kenya on behalf of the Soviets.

It is not known whether Oginga Odinga’s brother-in-law, Obama Sr., was involved in the coup, though given the tribal character of politics in Kenya it would be difficult to imagine that he wasn’t at least aware of it or wouldn’t have profited by it even if he didn’t contribute to it. Indeed, that may have been the reason for Obama Sr.’s failed political career in Kenya.

It is certainly ironic that Obama Sr.’s star eclipsed because of his relationship to Oginga Odinga, whereas his son Raila’s rose because of his connection to Obama Jr.

We wonder how things might have turned out if Obama Sr., the Harvard-trained economist, had followed his cousin’s example and named his American-born son “John Maynard Keynes Obama.”

Fidel later commented: “I’ve been dead for several months, now”.

“We wonder how things might have turned out if Obama Sr., the Harvard-trained economist, had followed his cousin’s example and named his American-born son ‘John Maynard Keynes Obama.’”

Nothing much. As it turned out, Obama is a pretty solid Keynesian. You know, what with that “trickle-up” nonsense.

I think Fidel has been dead for sometime now. Probably frozen; waiting to be resurrected someday.

Heck, I remember reading about him in my 4th grade Weekly Reader, and that was very early 60’s!!

I was just wondering.

Maybe the US doesn’t even have any enemies. Maybe Bin Ladin, Castro, and Dear Leader are all dead.

One can only hope … ;-) Because we are the world’s wealthiest nation with a government that works (until Obama takes control), we will always have enemies

”Is Castro dead or alive? I’ve lost track."

I think he’s alive today, but my watch might be off.

Castro looks like a badly embalmed corpse.

We’ll be lucky if DelanObama doesn’t offer Cuba Statehood...appoint Raul Governor and we’ll add a star...

I suspected he was dead! And this confirms it! Who would know better than him if he were still alive. ;)

Mr. Castro, you’re confused. John McCain didn’t win!
