20. Exactly -- it's absurd
It's a self-contradictory, unsustainable construct.

The right-wing pundits and their freeper brethren are claiming that Osama's mere emergence is sure to help Bush and state that as an established and undeniable fact, clearly supported by past evidence; the reason this is so is because we're not pussies like the Spanish and we're not going to vote for Kerry just because Osama wants us to.

And the only way, then, that Osama could possibly be wanting to hurt Bush with this tape is if he thinks that he is considered some kind of a respected public figure in the US and that his endrosement would help a political candidate here. Jesus, do these people think Osama is sitting in a cave somewhere, thinking "hm... What can I do to help Kerry? hmm... I know! I'm going to make a tape in which I will mock Bush!"

So if this is the kind of a dumbass Bush hasn't been able to bust before or after 9/11, then what does that say about the Bush administration?

He's either half-shrewd -- in which case he can predict your freeper-ass counter-reaction -- or he's an utter moron, which then makes your Great Leader an uber-dumbfuck.
