Where in the World is Fidel?

News of Fidel Castro's death may have come as a suprise to his supporters, his whereabouts still remain a mystery.

One place he was not at yesterday was campaigning with Ned Lamont in Connecticut. That task, along with torturing dissidents, and starving Cubans was left to his brother, Raul Castro.

Lamont will face 18-year incumbent Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman in the August 8th Democratic primary.

Ned Lamont will be joined by Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson today in a tour across the state. But yesterday, it was all Castro. Raul Castro that is.

"George Bush is unfit to lead and with Ned Lamont in the Senate, we will crush the American interloper who has oppressed the Cuban people" said Raul. At one point, the younger Castro even hinted at jailing Lamont's opponent, Senator Lieberman. "There is plenty of space in Havana's jails for people who dare oppose the glorious Ned Lamont revolution, if not - we will make space for Lieberman and Bush" yelled Castro who later called Lamont his "comrade".

Fidel Castro could not be reached for comment.
