Yeah, now he’s official. Associated Press reports that Argentine president Cristina Fernandez met with former President Fidel Castro who reiterated his endorsement of President Barack Obama.
Coming soon, no doubt, are good words from the ghost of Adolf Hitler, Charles Manson and the TBS executive that keeps greenlighting Tyler Perry sitcoms. We have to take Fernandez’s word that Fidel is in good health despite rumors he is ill and Simply Dumb’s sneaking suspicion he died sometime last year and is still ruling the country through the years of accumulated jackassery he’s banked.
Hey, don’t laugh too hard. FDR ran the country for years in a near death state and Ronald Reagan developed Alzheimer’s somewhere toward the beginning of his second term. The country was then run by a cabal including Nancy’s psychics and Frank Sinatra. Hey, he’s a guy that knew how to get things done. No flippin’ economic meltdowns on Ol’ Blue Eyes’ watch. He’d have gotten all the banking muckety-mucks, the Big Three automakers and whoever else he needed stinking drunk and they’d have hashed this mess out, with fistfights if need be. If none of that worked, he’d have called in some of his other – ahem, associates.
