Osama Redux

So Osama has emerged from some remote cave (or, plausibly, from New York City where he drives a cab) with a new look and new script.

He now has that Just for Men beard thing happening. And, apparently Big Business is responsible for most of the injustice in the world. The Democratic Party should have reined-in Big Business, stopped the war as they were elected to do, and all would be right in the world. Or something along those lines.

Somewhere his history timeline was a little out of whack as to whom was U.S. President at what time, and Don Rumsfeld is kind of a real-life Forrest Gump, in a position of power, manipulating others as a grand puppet master, through the last 50 years or so. My recollection of some of that conflicts with OSL, because I think Rummy ran G. D. Searle and Monsanto for a while....

And his new closing line is to embrace Islam and get a tax cut. I've actually heard worse political promises...

I guess some people will take all that seriously; some will even believe it. I now doubt that finding or killing him will much matter to events. But I sure would like to see it happen nonetheless.
