Al Qaeda endorses Obama

Less surprising even than the New York Times endorsement:
An al Qaeda leader has called for President George W. Bush and the Republicans to be "humiliated" . . .
"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.
Allahu akhbar, Obama!

UPDATE: Another dangerous extremist, Erica Jong:
"My friends Ken Follett and Susan Cheever are extremely worried. Naomi Wolf calls me every day. Yesterday, Jane Fonda sent me an email to tell me that she cried all night and can't cure her ailing back for all the stress that has reduces her to a bundle of nerves." . . .
"If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it's not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets."
You know, it's funny what she said about Jane Fonda. I've been sleeping like a baby ever since I got back from seeing the thousands who lined up Tuesday to see Sarah Palin in Pennsylvania. I'm more worried about Saturday's Alabama-LSU game than I am about Tuesday's election.


  1. You should be worried about LSU. Geaux Tigers!

  2. What?! What are you saying, Mr. Other McCain?? Are you saying... can it be... that you think there's a "chance" The Real McCain might win this thing?!

  3. That's next Saturday, btw. And hopefully LSU is good and cowed by now, instead of manfully inspired.

  4. M.E., I refuse to be optimistic. But it never hurts to hedge my bets.

  5. What web video? I can't find it. I guess Google is already filtering out certain content. As far as Jane Fonda goes, is she hoping for a pardon?

  6. Hanoi Jane disturbed?
    As I type, several of my fingers are...moved.
