Barack and Fidel, together again

OriginalThe Huffington Post reports that Republican John McCain is running a new Internet ad that aims to link Democrat Barack Obama with Fidel Castro.

The ad splices two photos of them side by side, and quotes Castro as saying Obama "is the most advanced candidate.''

Actually, Castro said in May that Obama, "without a doubt is, from the social and human point of view, the most advanced candidate."

What the ad doesn't tell you: Castro also said at the time that Obama's proposed changes to U.S.-Cuba policy were a "formula for hunger." More here.
