Here We Go
OK, everybody: al-Qaeda is in. Final chapter of Election 2008 begins…. now:
An al Qaeda leader has called for President George W. Bush and the Republicans to be “humiliated”, without endorsing any party in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, according to a video posted on the Internet.
“O God, humiliate Bush and his party, O Lord of the Worlds, degrade and defy him,” Abu Yahya al-Libi said at the end of sermon marking the Muslim feast of Eid al-Fitr, in a video posted on the Internet.
Libi, one of the top al Qaeda commanders believed to be living in Afghanistan or Pakistan, called for God’s wrath to be brought against Bush equating him with past tyrants in history.
Geezer? Barry? This one’s for the game.
(This comes at precisely the right time for the old man. Seriously: there was some off-the-charts bullshit from Geezer today about how Barack Obama supports tax breaks for oil companies. And he gets a free pass, because al-Qaeda wants to pull votes away from Black Eagle.)
Hopey had better come strong here, before Geezer drives the narrative. They’ve got about 12 hours before the blast-ad drops. Barry: hurry up, but don’t rush.
Maybe the American public will, on seeing this, realize that the members of al queada are human, that the citizens of the US actually have something in common with them; a deep, burning desire for the humiliation of Bush and his party. We even pray similar prayers.
No Osama? Meh – this will hardly register.
“Multiple senior government officials tell ABC News the intelligence community is anticipating a message from Osama bin Laden before or just after the presidential election.”
See, and so many people thought that Bush wouldn’t do any campaigning for McCain. See, multiple senior government officials, that means Mukasey, Condi, whoever is the SecDef, and maybe even Cheney, if they could pry him away from his hobby of strangling puppies. All come out in support of McCain.
Hold on. Seriously? Abu YaYa al-Libtard? Can’t you think of a fake Arab name that’s slightly less retarded?
This is really strange. Nobody, it seems, has picked up the Reuters story besides Josh Marshall and, um, me.
A cursory trip over to the Corner shows that they are still beating the Khalidi / LA Times cover-up idea.
Lead story on World Net Daily (wow, a scary joint): Marxist ‘mentor’ sold drugs with Obama. (Apologies for the 2003 shitty-TV flashback, but: Jerome Corsi… you are the weakest link.) Doesn’t even merit above-the-fold.
Town Hall? Squat. Fox News? Nothing. ABC just has the “maybe Osama” thing that Prommie checks up.
This is strange.
Maybe it really is a “meh.” response from news organizations. Who cares what al Qaeda says, if it’s not Osama himself saying it?
Breaking: Cal Gov Schwarzenegger has come out against Prop 8, the gay-hating anti-gay-marriage ballot initiative.
@Dodgerblue: He had to wait for Feinstein? Girly-man.
@nojo: I was surprised that Feinstein came out as strongly as she did. She is not known for having any, ah, balls.
@IanJ: Exactly what I was thinking.
Oh, and also: Eid was at the end of September this year. There are Nabisco-ites who follow that stuff. Who are the ass-clowns that plant this stuff, anyhow?
@blogenfreude: @IanJ: It’s not Osama, nobody’s heard of the guy, and he agrees with both major-party candidates and four out of five Americans.
There’s still time for Osama to endorse his Muslim fist-bumping bro Barry on tape, in English, of course. (“And thanks for the dialysis machine!”) But the American people will accept no substitutes, especially if the speaker’s role has to be explained beforehand.
