Letters From bin Laden

Bin Laden alive, wrote to me, Taliban leader says

Well, Mr Big Shot, Osammy wrote me too.

We've been staying in a pretty nice cave here in the Pamirs. It's nice
in the summer, but by Allah the winters really suck. If you think dialysis is a
prob in your cushy little Satan cell try it at 50 below with nothing but a Yeti
gussied up in lipstick to keep you warm.

Speaking of cells, I was having a little pep talk with Bakht Mohammad the other
day. Boy, (oops shouldn't say that) do I miss Dadullah. That was one ass-kickin mujahid. Too bad some weak tool of Satan turned him into a grease spot. So, Bakht Mohammad is telling me all about his big plans. Oy, that Mashugina is dumber than pajama boy (oops again), Abedinejad. Pelosi? Murtha? My you-know-what has more brain power than both of those Satans put together. One's dumber than a box of rocks and the other is 72 short of Heaven.

Democrats schemocrats. Pigs and monkeys. Useful, but oh so haram. If they
really want to help me, they could come clean (pun, get it?) and send us guns
and money. Yeah, then we'll let Allah deal with them last.

Gotta go, we're off for higher climes. Never know about the "people"
around here. Satan's money, you know. In fact Zawahri has been acting funny lately, whispering into his cell phone and when I ask him about it, he starts with the "secret plans" crap about dealing with the infidels. Oh, and don't get me started about that Jamil. I got his beautiful right here if you know what I mean.

Hasta la vista by Allah's will and so forth,

Cohen, Reagan and Thompson

I was going to write something concerning Fred Thompson and the Presidency. I like Thompson's approach to being President, which I read as; okay, if it's possible, but if it isn't that's okay as well.

I liked Ronald Reagan, in fact I liked him enough that I quit what I was doing and campaigned for him and when he was elected I moved to Washington to work in politics to indirectly and then directly support Reagan and his beliefs. Liberal denunciation of Reagan as a man and as an intellect exhibited their fear of the man. The media, the Congress and others whispered loudly that Reagan was stupid which sent me into fits of giggles and sometimes rage. Tip O'Neill tried to take on this "stupid man" and Reagan out thought him. What scared them the most was that Reagan didn't fit the mold. Reagan did what worried them the most. Reagan went directly to the people and told them the truth and told them what he wanted to do and why. In Washington, that was dirty pool because in Washington politicians are the "people" except they, as our "representatives, are a whole lot smarter and better people. They believe themselves Sonnenkinder.

Destiny chose Reagan because Reagan chose his own destiny at a time when a Reagan was very much needed by the country and deeply desired by the people.

Fred Thompson is not Ronald Reagan. Reagan was Reagan and Thompson is Thompson. Reagan became a politician and a damned good one. He had a passion based on deep intellectual and ideological beliefs that, full circle, created a fire-in-the-gut. His passion lit a room when he entered. I saw rooms stop when he entered. Even people who had never set foot in Washington knew that Reagan was the cure for the virus called politics.

As Patton would have had little effect at Waterloo because Patton's essential skill was destined to be used in another conflict, Thompson brings his essential skill to the present. A skill of common sense. Thompson is a Thompson that people can recognize and be comfortable with because he is not Reagan, but Thompson. No hidden agendas, no secret burning passion to reshape the essential America, because he likes America. He likes us. Thompson doesn't think America is wrong. Yes, we can do better, but we are a good people with good intentions who do good things in the larger picture of the world. That scares the living crap out of Liberals.

So now, Liberals have begun the tear down of Thompson by negating some of their earlier attacks on Reagan to better hone their attacks on Thompson. Reagan was stupid, but he was driven and passionate. Thompson is smart, but lacks passion because he is lazy and stupid about what America needs right now.

They have made Thompson important and for that Conservatives should thank Liberals. Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

This ain't Hell nails it with his post on the estimable Richard Cohen's Washington Post article concerning Thompson.
WaPo’s Cohen: Thompson is no Reagan

I have nothing good to write for almost all of Washington Post’s
columnists, well except maybe Novak and Krauthammer, but this clown Richard
Cohen really writes some stupid crap sometimes. Take today’s column for
instance; Can He Find His Motivation?

Cohen, who also wrote “Wasted Lives“, in which he said our troops were
dying for nothing in Iraq and I criticized back in March, claims in this
piece that Thompson shouldn’t be allowed to be President for this

If Thompson’s name came up in some sort of free-association game, he would
be a genuine stumper: Thompson and what? There is no Thompson Act, Thompson Compromise, Thompson Hearing, Thompson Speech or Thompson Anything that comes to mind. No living man can call himself a Thompsonite. Instead, Thompson came and went from the Senate as if he were never there, leaving only the faint scent of ennui. “I don’t want to spend the rest of my life up here,” he once said. “I don’t like spending 14- and 16-hour days voting on ’sense of the Senate’ resolutions on irrelevant matters.” As a call to action, this lacks a certain something.

Read the rest you lazy ......
