"tis only a flesh wound. I'm feeling much better already, thank you....."

Another great line (this one from the narrator)....."it looks like certain death for King Arther and his merry band, when suddenly..........the animator suffers a fatal heart attack.....(aaahhhh)" and the monster disappears.

One of the all time greats, right up there with Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles.

More bombs. We're getting close. Bomb them back past the Stone Age way WAY back into the Mesozoaic.

Next time we see that part of the world, I wanna see trilobites skittering across the sandy bottom of a shallow pool in a fern glade.

Damn it, didn't he read the DNC talking points carefully? That was supposed to be an illegal attack on a wedding party where he never was, not verification of a close call.

Ghads, Dean's going to tear this guy a new one once they figure out how to get the NSA to stop listening on on the phone calls.

...says he survived airstrike

Yeah, but how do we know he's telling the truth? Even if the airstrike had killed him, you wouldn't expect him to admit it, would you?

So. Who's taking bets on the next terrorist attack? Any spreads out there? :P Ok, so I'm trying to be non-chalant and cavalier. But there's *too* much going on nationwide and worldwide that pprovide optimum targets for attempts. And as I understand it - it trends towards attack execution when Bin Laden and Al-Zawahiri send out messages within a week/two of each other - within in the next 15-30 days. I have read a couple of different authors that pick up on this trend - specifically identifying Bali, Madrid and London as examples.... I need to find the links again.

Check your plastic and duct tape stashes gang. Ok, so really, your water and food. :P Prayers that nothing happens... or if it does, it's stopped in process.

Boy, he sounds really pissed. Those missiles must have landed really close.

Sounds like he has been following Cindy Sheehan´s career too.

I can handle just about anything except the random suicide bomber anywhere anytime. If the other side thinks our civil rights are being jeopordized now, they haven't seen anything.

"You, American mother, if the Pentagon calls to tell you that your son is coming home in a coffin, then remember George Bush.

Calling Cindy Sheehan, calling Cindy Sheehan, please come to the white paging phone.

The Al-Jazeera newscaster said Monday the network was airing excerpts from the al-Zawahiri tape, and it showed two short segments. It was not immediately known how long the entire tape was.

Is al-Jazeera going to dribble out the rest of it according to instructions from Zawahiri, or are they following their own agenda? Was the tape addressed to America or to al-Jazeera (al-Qaeda's propaganda arm?)? Taking out al-Jazeera really is way overdue.

Guess who said this?

"Bush and his gang are shedding your blood and wasting your money in failing adventures and push you into a conflict that you are not fit for," he said. "American mother, if you are contacted by the Department of Defense and told that you will received your son in a coffin, blame it on George Bush."

Choice A

Choice B

Wouldn't it be a yellow one instead of white? Though white does signify surrender. Maybe a white phone with a yellow handset, signifying a yellow streak.

Maybe I'm going to far with this.....

If it was up to me and we even had the resources, which we don't, I would put an entire Light Infantry company, complete with an attached platoon of ADA Avengers, around every single nuke power plant in this country.

Well, it was him.

his language was almost precisely what Dean and the Democrats have been using.

If Republicans had used similar rhetoric against FDR during WW II, they would have been shot for treason.

Fortunately for the nation, Republicans are not insane.

"Your leaders responded to the initiative of sheik Usama, may God protect him, by saying they don't negotiate with terrorists and that they are winning the war on terror. I tell them: You liars, greedy war mongers, who is pulling out from Iraq and Afghanistan? Us or you? Whose soldiers are committing suicide because of despair? Us or you?" he said.

Spoken like a true liberal.
