McCain Makes Historic Obama-Castro Introduction

This wasn't long in the coming! According to the Huffington Post, McCain has released an ad "connecting" Obama to Cuban leader Fidel Castro. "A Democrat in south Florida alerted the Huffington Post to the image, which shows Obama and Castro, profiled side-by-side, above a quote from the Cuban leader praising the Illinois Democrat as 'the most advanced candidate.'" Given that John McCain is his opponent, I wouldn't exactly call that a ringing endorsement. In fact, Castro has been very critical of Obama's Cuba policy.

In other election news, 12 Pennsylvania Democratic state representatives and their aides were
for illegally receiving public funds to keep "were given taxpayer-funded bonuses to keep 2004 presidential candidate Ralph Nader (Ind.) and 2006 US Senate candidate Carl Romanelli (Green) off the state ballot." Low blow to democracy from the ? Party.
