Osama bin Laden, Republican?

Have you read the transcript of Osama's latest video?

We're guessing no, because you have a life.

Not to worry. Jessica McBride has read it for you, and reached the inescapable conclusion that Osama is a Democrat. Or maybe it's that Democrats are terrorists. Something like that.

Or perhaps it was a typo, and she meant to write that Obama is a Democrat.

We've just scanned the transcript, but a couple of things jumped out at us:

"There are no taxes in Islam."

And Osama hates Hollywood.

Mr. Bin Laden sounds like a Republican.

As we learned in "Farenheit 911," he and his family have certainly been chummy with the GOP and the Bushes.

We don't recall them hanging out with Dave Obey.

UPDATE: Mike Plaisted says McBride has resorted to bomb-throwing to try to attract some attention because she still misses the high profile she had as a radio host before her career went into eclipse -- and points out that what she wrote has little or nothing to do with what Bin Laden actually said.

AND ANOTHER:Jay Bullock says that calling Osama a Dem is like calling an earthquake a terrorist.


  1. I personally believe that she posted this only because she is bitter about never being named as part of the "Best of the Blogs".

  2. Two differen comments of mine have gone unpublish in that thread. Neither was particularly offensive. I have them saved and will blog them in the morning if they don't show.

  3. Eeks! Apologies for the poor spelling! It's late and I am mostly insane.

  4. New Osama video seems yet another forgery. Everyone needs Osama alive:
    terrorists as symbolic leader and the US Administration - to avoid
    scaling down the war on terror.
    Obadiah Shoher rightly notes ( ) that
    new Osama talks like a leftist university professor. I like Shoher's
    analysis. No way a terrorist leader like Osama would use a speechwriter. Osama is famous
    for his rhetoric.
    Also, in the tape Osama both threatens America with attack (by
    "proving" Americans polytheists) and offers (yet another time)
    long-term coaching in Islam.
    But his dyed beard makes me cautious. Islam's mujahedeen dye their
    beards before battle.
