want to hear something really scary?

My take on the OBL tape. Let's just get this all out of the way right now: Karl Rove, fake terror alerts, playing on fears, black ops, you can see Bush's hand up OBL's dress, this was filmed in the basement of the White House, etc., etc., etc. Honestly, I have no idea which side this "works out" for. Both sides will spin it until it's dizzy. I'll just go right on preparing for Halloween and thinking that K-Rock's Monster Metal weekend is far scarier than this possibly real bin Laden offering. I mean, they just played Extreme, people. That's a hell of a lot more frightening than some guy in a turban reciting Michael Moore talking points. My Pet Goat? Please. Unrelated: You want to know how to really affect an election? Say things like, Shake your titties when you vote, bitch! Man, that was good stuff. Update: K-Rock is playing Spinal Tap right now, at the same time I'm looking at the updates to the "OBL" story. Coincidence? I think not. (I'm not claiming the tape itself is fake, but I question AJ's translation)

I was skipping around the radio and landed on their channel. First reaction: "Jesus, what the--"
Immediately jam finger down on channel changer.
They're losing Stern, which means they are swirling in the bowl.

yeah, republicans suck. right-wing bible-thumping no thinking for themselves losers. i think i /will/ come around so i can annoy you people.

you fascist neo-nazi, rights-stealing meanies.

Boohoo! He called us names! (sniffle)

Has to be a troll. Nobody actually says "meanies".

so, if we give bush another 4 years, he promises to track OBL down this time? or is he just not concerned about OBL any longer?

Whereas a President Kerry would easily track OBL down by inviting him to a summit at the White House. Think of the photo op as the two celebrate "peace in our time" with a firm handshake... doesn't it fill your heart with love?

Yeah, Afghanistan is THE new vacation spot...and the Pakistan border area...wooooweee, that place is just plain hot. Those troops over there are just kickin back and partying and havin a good ole time.

/sarcasm

I wonder if you are mistaken Michele. I think it was Michael Moore up OSB's robes.

...

For completely different reasons.

LabRat: Nobody actually says "meanies".

Um... I do. Usually when mocking trolls. But then, I'm such a meanie at times. :)

I have a plan.

Since I didn't have time to tell you what my plan to end terrorism is in the debates, I've decided to post it as an ASV exclusive.

One word:

Hugs

I love being a meanie.

Actually, I was a bit suprised to see Osammy lookin' all chipper and healthy. I'm one of those folks who was pretty sure that he was atrophied in a smelly cave somewhere along the Paki border. I'm not writing him off altogether, but it appears as though he's lost most of his capacity to command (what is left of)his loyalists. We don't have his ass on a plate yet, but diminished capacity works nicely for me until we get him (and we WILL get him). Either way, I really don't see how this works in either candidate's favor. Besides, the Big O failed to repeat the "your streets will run with American blood" mantra that seems to be mandatory in any communique to the American people. He looked like he really just wanted to have a cigar, watch a few minutes of the evening news, and hit the sack early.

K-Rock's playing Extreme? Hey, when they start palying Europe's "Final Countdown" it might be time to turn the ol' knob! Sheesh - It's gotta be better programming than my local stations - they'll have "metal" weekends with large dollops of Loverboy and Cars trax. Oy.

Wow, how do I follow 88's comment? I know this isn't genius or anything but the reaction to bin Laden's tape will tell us exactly where we are in terms of the war on terror. If we collectivelly think that he's made us a good offer to not make war with Muslim countries, we're going to elect a president Kerry on Tuesday. If the American people see his face and want to stomp on it, Bush is in.

Oh, and 104.3 is the only bearable station left in NY.

88's comment has been deleted. He shows up here from time to time pretending to be Hitler. He's not very good at it.

My take on OBL tape.
[Ahem]

Shut the fuck up, Osammy!

Thank You!

I wonder if maybe the President has one of those cool little killing machines like the Evil Captain Kirk had in the Alternate universe. All he has to do is to twirl a dial and the viewscreen will zero right in on Osama bin Laden, then, with a push of a button, the President will make him go away in a bright flash of light.

Maybe he'll do it on "60 Minutes" and let us all watch it!

Dammit, why hasn't he used his Mirror Universe Killing Thingamajiggie!? Why?

Personally, I think it would be a really bad move for either side to spin this one. We'll see.

The commercial (hits) stuff was a lot like cotton-candy, but the actual Extreme ALBUMS were rather metal.

I don't know of too many grandmothers humming "Litle Jack Horny" or "Get the funk out".

OBL sounds extremely pussified to me.

Not that we shouldn't keep on kicking the shit out of them.
