Osama Bin Laden - John McCain & Chicken Entrails

Reading the Chicken Entrails.

Obama has moved into a slight lead in Ohio.

Republicans went to Minnesota with high hopes of taking it into play. This is not a state that McCain wants to give up. Oooops!
Obama (D) 53 McCain (R) 41

And into the “Heartland”, Iowa
Obama (D) 55 McCain (R) 40

And, McCain still holds a 3-point lead in North Carolina, which keeps it in play. Obama holds a big lead in the first District of NM signaling that he will take that state.

Moving on. Remember the Taliban, those wonderful and wacky, funnily-dressed natives in Afghanistan, who provided aid, comfort, dancing girls, hookahs and cold drinks to Al Qaeda kingpin, Bin Laden, and his dour band of plotters prior to the September 11 attacks on America?

Sure, those guys. Yeah, yeah, I know, but Iraq, was really, really, really important for some reason, so we let them rebuild their power base, and replant their opium poppy fields to finance their nefarious rituals targeting just about everyone, including each other.

So we sort of let that pesky old cut-up Bin Laden off the hook, so to speak.

Well, John McCain has announced that he knows how to get Osama Bin Laden. “President Clinton had opportunities to get Osama bin Laden. President Bush had opportunities to get Osama bin Laden. I know how to do it and I'll do it," he told ABC's "World News" in an interview.

Great news there, John old chap. Since we’ve got good, solid, brave, young Americans dying over there, maybe you’d be generous enough to let the military in on it, so they could just go ahead and do it, and maybe help spare a few lives, or, heaven forefend, another attack here in the states. Do it now instead of posturing during a campaign—there’s no anchor on your butt holding you back!

What a load of cheap, self-serving BS.

We deserve better than this. I grant you we’ve been asleep at the wheel, and often vote for the wrong person, at the wrong time, for all the wrong reasons, but despite that, we really do deserve better than this. Don’t we?
