Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich Wish Fidel Castro To Hell

Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich got into a game of one-upmanship at a GOP debate Monday night when discussing the potential death of Cuba's Fidel Castro, the dictator from whom many Cuban-Americans fled, often to Florida.

"Well first of all, you thank heavens that Fidel Castro has returned to his maker and will be sent to to another land," Romney said to applause from the crowd -- one of the first signs of life from the audience in the debate -- when asked by moderator Brian Williams what he would do if Castro died and Cubans flooded to the United States.

Newt Gingrich went one step further when he was asked the same question.

"I don't think Fidel is going to meet his maker," Gingrich said. "I think he's going to the place."

"Another land", Mitt? Like, a really lousy planet of his own?

3. That was a religious jab of sorts by Newt


He was subtly reminding the viewers that Mitt's picture of the afterlife is different from good Hell-believing Christians.

Practically nobody is eternally punished in the Mormon afterlife. About the worst thing that happens is you become a servant to one of the Mormons on his planet with his celestial wives. However, of you talk smack about Joseph Smith, then you are in deeper trouble.
