HAVANA (AFP) — Ailing Cuban leader Fidel Castro, whose political future is to be clarified this month, took another swipe at Republican US presidential hopeful John McCain, in an editorial published Wednesday.
Fidel Castro, 81, wrote in the Communist Party newspaper Granma that McCain was in the pocket of conservative Cuban-Americans, most of whom live in Florida and strongly oppose his policies.
"It is incredible that at this point in history, the Republican candidate, decorated as a hero, would become the pawn of that mafia. No one who believes in himself would commit such a serious ethical mistake," Castro wrote in his third in a series of articles picking apart McCain.
JG: WAY TO GO, FIDEL! Big Mac in the White House would be merely Bush # 3. More of the same shit!
