Which candidate is seeking Castro's endorsement?

We got another letter today from Sean Swain, the guy who is running for Ohio governor from his Toledo prison cell.

The self-proclaimed "insurgent candidate" says he's seeking endorsements from Cuban president Fidel Castro, as well as Venezuela's Hugo Chavez.

Also, Swain apparently has something against grocers. In his letter, he urged Gov. Bob Taft to recall Ohio National Guard troops from Afghanistan and Iraq. If Taft refuses, Swain said, it proves he is "a coward, a lackey of the grocer's machine."

Hey Carl, who did you ask if there was a stolen election in 2004?

Was it Ken Blackwell?

I also heard Mel "Jesus is my co-pilot" Gibson might seek Bush's endorsement for his court case. He's having trouble finding a lawyer since they're all Jews.

Thanks and keep up the great, great reporting.

I'm just going to assume he is a part of the aiLing party that has to use another parties mistakes to win elections.

Actually I think Swain got his views from green candidate bob fritakis.

I think a lot of the liberal posters on here would like Castro and Chavez's endorsements.

The grocers comment might be a vague reference to a line spoken by Brando's character in Apocolypse Now: "You're an errand boy...sent by grocery clerks...to collect the bill."

Exactly, you didn't expect the "do as your told fishwrap reporter" to do any intellectual research did you ?

The film is just now making the cell rounds !!
