Biscuits and gravy

John "I released all my records" Kerry:
Brokaw: Someone has analyzed the President's military aptitude tests and yours, and concluded that he has a higher IQ than you do.

Kerry: That's great. More power. I don't know how they've done it, because my record is not public. So I don't know where you're getting that from.

Silent Running:
It seems from his invitation to us to surrender that he's a big fan of Michael Moore. That DVD of "Farenheit 9/11" got through to Waziristan I see...
Is Osama taking his talking points from Kos? It's a pity he didn't stage his "October surprise" a little earlier, he could have really made an impact at the Democratic National Convention. I'm sure Jimmy Carter would have invited him to his skybox, although it would have been a bit of a squeeze with Michael Moore in there as well. And I don't even want to speculate about the smell.

Belmont Club:
It is important to notice what he has stopped saying in this speech. He has stopped talking about the restoration of the Global Caliphate. There is no more mention of the return of Andalusia. There is no more anticipation that Islam will sweep the world. He is no longer boasting that Americans run at the slightest wounds; that they are more cowardly than the Russians. He is not talking about future operations to swathe the world in fire but dwelling on past glories. He is basically saying if you leave us alone we will leave you alone. Though it is couched in his customary orbicular phraseology he is basically asking for time out.

Captain Ed:
CNN reports that John Kerry waited all of about 15 nanoseconds to use the new Osama bin Laden videotape to boost his political fortunes, even after he claimed that all Americans were united in their determination to defeat terrorism

Bill Maher still has the hots for jihadis:
Maher says some of the stuff in the bin Laden tape "I swear to God could have come out of the Democratic National Committee or a Kerry speech." Maher starts to read; Gen Wes Clark interrupts -- sensibly -- and doesn't want to seem by silence to be agreeing with that. Maher reads some of bin Laden's statements and the audience -- amazingly -- applauds! Maher: "Sometimes you can agree with an evil person. I mean, Hitler was a vegetarian." What the F has become of us? A studio audience is applauding a mass murderer?
