The Bin Laden Endorsement of John Kerry is producing nothing but headaches for the Massachussetts Senator, but great fun for bloggers. Bin Laden lit into Bush yesterday, using every talking point that Michael Moore had used in Farenheit 9/11, and then some. Here's this bon mot, which appears to come out of MoveOn.org's latest ad...
"You astonish me. Despite the fact that we are into the fourth year after September 11, Bush is still misleading you and hiding the real reason from you, which means that the reasons to repeat what happened remain.
Then there's this gem!
"It never occurred to us that the commander in chief of the US armed forces would leave 50,000 of his citizens in the two towers to face these horrors alone at a time when they were most in need of him.
"He reckoned that it was more important to preoccupy himself with the talk of the little girl about her goat ... than with the planes and their strike on the skyscrapers, giving us three times the time required to carry out the operations, thanks be to God.
If I am Michael Moore, I am pissed! Bin Laden didn't even have the Goddamn common courtesy to send Americas Low-Rent Riefenstahl a residuals check! Looks like Moore will have to pay for that carton of Ding Dongs out of his own pocket next week.
Meantime, other bloggers have found bin Laden charges that should give every voter pause before they punch the card for BushHitler!
"In addition, the infidel George Bush is outsourcing America's future with tax cuts to the wealthy. Where are the 1.6 million jobs? The infidel Bush is the first infidel since the infidel Herbert Hoover to lose jobs! Awake from your slumber, America! The infidel John Kerry has a plan. You can do better, Insha'Allah!"
"Let me tell you, I spoke to the infidel Christopher Reeve a week ago, and if the infidel John Kerry is elected President, Insha'Allah, the infidel Christopher Reeve will walk again!"
"Are you infidels aware that the infidel John Kerry killed infidels in a war of imperialist infidel aggression in Southeast Asia?"
"The infidel Mary Cheney is a lesbian."
Of course, parody points courtesy of the wags over at INDC Journal
This is a freaking gift for Bush; there is no other way to spin it, though I'm sure Josh Marshall and others will try.
Kerry is not a happy man today, that's for sure. Nor should he be.
"The infidels Kerry and Edwards! Building a Stronger Great Satan!"
