Let's get ready to Fear Monger!: GOP amping up scary Osama commericial
Truly, the GOP can't even fake originality anymore. Last election, it was Cheney saying that a vote for Kerry would result in "we'll get hit again" by terrorists. This election, the entire GOP aim is to scare up big voter turnout. How do they plan on doing that? By dragging out the guy who Bush claimed he frankly just doesn't think very much about... why, it is Osama, of course: The GOP will begin airing a hard-hitting ad (if you're a complete moron, it could be thought of as hard hitting, Those of us with brains in our heads will call it what it is: Old & tired recycled fear mongering vomit) this weekend that warns of more cataclysmic terror attacks against the US homeland. OMG! Will it come in the form of that mushroom cloud Condi warned us about? Oh right... that was her fear mongering about Saddam. The ad portrays Osama bin Laden and quotes his threats against America dating to February 1998. Feb of '98? OMG... wasn't Clinton getting a bj back in '98? The ad concludes: "These are the stakes. Vote November 7." B/c if you don't vote for us, Osama will remain either dead or happily wandering the earth as a free man.., frankly we could care less about either option... but you had better bet your boots we'll dust him off and drag his ass out again in 2008. The ad displays an array of quotes from bin Laden and his top lieutenant, Ayman al-Zawahri, that include bin Laden's Dec. 26, 2001 vow that "what is yet to come will be even greater." The ad also cites al-Zawahri's claim to have obtained "some suitcase bombs," followed by a scene that appears to show a nuclear explosion. Oohh... maybe he blew up his deadly shampoo... or dastdardly lip gloss... or the oh-so-dangerous breast milk in his suitcase? Despite al-Zawahri's claim, portable nuclear devices are believed to be particularly difficult to produce and elusive to rogue regimes and terror groups. Facts schmacts. Stop confusing my mind with the truth. The ad is also featured on the RNC's Web site. The party said the ad, called "The Stakes," will be e-mailed to millions of GOP supporters, activists and the state parties... and the gullible will gobble it down with a heaping serving of Kool-Aid. Mmmm... Grape flavored fear.
