al Qaeda threatens; American on tape
Another al Qaeda tape - this one saying that they will attack America soon - has been released. This is, of course, the sequel to the 300 other tapes that have been released. But of course, this time they're serious. But this time the video's speaker is an American. And, more accurately, a jackass. He says:
No, my fellow countrymen you are guilty, guilty, guilty, guilty. You are as guilty as Bush and Cheney. You're as guilty as Rumsfeld and Ashcroft and Powell," he says in what he calls his message to America. "After decades of American tyranny and oppression, now it's your turn to die. Allah willing, the streets of America will run red with blood matching drop for drop the blood of America's victims."
We're all guilty? But I've been sitting here eating Cheez-It's and blogging. I am voting - what are YOU doing to help America get on the right track, anonymous American asshole?
On the other hand, though, if D.C. is nuked I suppose I'll be eating my words. And Jon will take over the blog, I assume.
On a totally different note, I actually got an E-mail recommending that I talk more about the election. No. Everyone and their mother is getting spin spewed at them from every direction. I'll refrain until election night from talking too much about it, aside from the occasional vent. If you want to avoid watching the news for the next 5 days, allow me to some it up: "Bush is ahead! No, Kerry is ahead! It's a tie now! Too close to call! Ohio is really important!"
