The house: Bin Laden caught in a big, expensive mansion that didn’t have phone or internet service. A smaller house wouldn’t have raised much suspicion. But the giant house bit him on the ass. So – Bin Laden got caught because he was living in a house far bigger than he should have been living in. In other words, by living like many Americans! (I guess it’s hard to resist…even for the leader of the terrorist world).
The golf course: Living next to the Abbottābad Golf Club – I wonder if it’s any good? I checked out the golf course on Google Maps…and I found some reviews of the course – in English, no less! Oddly, all the reviews seem to be from the evening of May 2nd or later!
– One reviewer gave it 4 stars and said “Hit drive on 4th hole into abandoned helicopter which then exploded. Need ruling.”
– Another gave it 5 stars, saying “Good course, greens are a little fast, but the cart-girl has a beard and AK-47.”
– And another says “I would have given this place 5 stars except I was 5 under thru the front 9 when my game was interrupted by helicopters and some gentlemen dressed in all black who killed 2 of my playing partners. Other than that, I would come again.”
The military intelligence: Around the corner from the ‘Westpoint‘ of Pakistan? Are you kidding me? Nice job, Pakistan…ya retards. If they’re harboring Bin Laden, maybe we should just move the troops one country to the east. He’s sitting in a mansion next to the Westpoint of Pakistan and also just 90 miles outside of the capital of Pakistan? Are you kidding me? It’s Pakistan, not Kazakhstan. They knew, right?
Like Hillary said to Pakistan in 2009: “I find it hard to believe that nobody in your government knows where they are and couldn’t get them if they really wanted to.” (By the way, that’s a bold statement. And, she didn’t say that from her office in DC. She said that while she was in Pakistan! Nice work, Hillary!).
On Obama: I’d be happy if was killed on Bush’s watch. I’d be happier if he was killed on Bush’s watch. The sooner he’s dead, presumably the sooner the troops can return. So he’s dead now and that’s all that matters. Coulda, woulda, shoulda…perhaps. If Bush would have got him, Bush would have gotten credit. If Obama didn’t get him before the 2012 debates, he would have gotten ripped for it by the Republicans. Was Bush focused on Afghanistan while the Obama administration looked harder at Pakistan? I don’t know. Certainly, Hillary was saying in no uncertain terms that she was pretty sure he was in Pakistan.
Mark Morford on Palin:
Truly, among women in the know and especially among those who fought so hard to bring Hillary Clinton to the brink of history, nausea and a general recoiling appear to be the universal reactions to Palin’s sudden presence on the national stage, stemming straight from the idea that there’s even a slight chance in hell such an antagonistic, anti-female politico could be within a 72-year-old heartbeat of becoming the most powerful and iconic woman of all time.
They say: You’ve got to be kidding me. They say: This is what we get? This could be our historic role model? Two hundred years (OK, more like 2000) of struggle, only to have this nasty caricature of femininity try to hijack and mock and undermine it all?
It cannot be true, they say. The universe must be joking; it would not dare dump such a homophobic, Creationist evangelical nutball on us, this anti-choice, God-pandering woman who’s the inverse of Hillary, this woman of deep inexperience who abhors birth control and supports abstinence education and shoots exhausted wolves from helicopters and hates polar bears and actually stands for everything progressive women have resented since the first pope Swift-Boated Eve.
Here’s a short and good ‘un from Jack Cafferty: http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/08/25/cafferty.clintons/index.html
It’s not like [the Clintons] have been bending over backwards to help Obama get elected. Bill Clinton has barely been polite. He couldn’t even bring himself to say he thought Obama is qualified to be president. Now, Bill Clinton is reportedly not happy about the topic of his speech Wednesday night.
Politico.com reports the former president wanted to talk about the economy under President Bush compared to his accomplishments during his term in office. The theme for Wednesday night is “Securing America for the 21st Century.” It seems Bill Clinton is forever more interested in reminding us of what a charming guy he was while in office than in acting like one of the leaders of his party and trying to get his party into the White House.
Kind of sad, really.
Yet, Obama’s people have gone out of their way to accommodate the Clintons this week in the hopes of achieving party unity. Obama told reporters on Monday that former President Clinton could speak about anything he likes.
Some of Hillary Clinton’s supporters had threatened to disrupt the proceedings if their candidate wasn’t shown the proper amount of respect. They’re called PUMAs, an acronym for “Party Unity My Ass.” They appear to be a humorless lot who cannot come to terms with the fact that the country didn’t want Hillary Clinton to be president. So they have been throwing a hissy fit ever since the primaries ended.
“If one candidate’s trying to scare you and the other one’s trying to get you to think, if one candidate’s appealing to your fears and the other one’s appealing to your hopes, you better vote for the person who wants you to think and hope.”
— Bill Clinton, 2004
“Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience. I will bring a lifetime of experience, and Senator Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002.”
— Hillary Clinton
“That’s what you say when you want to be John McCain’s Vice-Presidential choice. That’s not what you say when you’re trying to become the Democratic nominee for president.”
— Rachel Maddow, when asked about Hillary’s statement above
Funny video – 2 voters debate the merits of their favorite candidate while trading jabs.
Crazy if Hillary’s campaign is derailed by a comedian. It has happened before.
When John McCain first ran for the Senate, he was called a liar by the most famous comedian of that time: Mark Twain.

Oh Dear…CBS Video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8BfNqhV5hg4It’s like Jon Stewart once said: Do these people not realize that there are microphones recording the things they say? (Paraphrased).
From the “You reap what you sow” section:
The Tuzla story, which has been buzzing under the radar for some time, now threatens to cause real problems for the New York senator. YouTube mashups juxtaposing Clinton’s recounting of the dangers she faced with newsreels of her kissing a Bosnian child during a photo-op have become hits. The Washington Post reported that one such video had received more than 100,000 views. After weeks of keeping Sen. Barack Obama on the defensive over his association with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Clinton now finds herself at the center of a growing firestorm.
“I remember landing under sniper fire,” Mrs. Clinton said last week. “There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”Unfortunately for Mrs. Clinton, these events unfolded in the 1990s — not the 19th century — and her trip was well documented. As it turns out, Mrs. Clinton and teen-aged daughter Chelsea arrived in Bosnia, where they walked (not ran) across the tarmac and greeted an 8-year-old girl and assorted dignitaries. Comedian Sinbad and singer Sheryl Crow came along as well, and photos of the trip show everyone having a fine time. http://dallasmorningviewsblog.dallasnews.com/archives/2008/03/hillary-clinton.html
