You better put down your drinks, and make sure there's nothing in your mouths, for the New York Times's David Brooks made a comment on Friday's News Hour that is guaranteed to evoke uncontrollable fits of laughter from those on the right side of the aisle.
After introducing regular guests Brooks and Mark Shields, host Jim Lehrer asked their opinions concerning the just-released Osama bin Laden video.

Osama Bin Laden-Keith Olbermann... Same Speech Writer?
THIS IS JUST SCARY!
On the radio last night John Gibson compared the words of the world’s most wanted terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, with the words of Keith Olbermann.
There’s an echo in the room...
Man, that hilarious!
David Brooks Compares Bin Laden To “Lefty Bloggers”
If you read all the comments that Osama made (not the video translation)...you will swear that it sounds like Al Gore or John Kerry. The speech doesn’t match up to previous hardline Islamic speeches that he has given. This makes me think that someone in the organization wrote the thing for him. Perhaps that idiot American who converted over...that has shown up on various recent newscasts...just my humble guess...but its not a written product by Osama.
Actually...if I were a active Republican player...I’d take the whole speech...chop it up for 30 second commercials...for next summer’s presidential run. So much of it was Democrat in nature. I would simply have the text and voice running across a dark screen...and reveal the picture of Osama at the end of the commercial. Might shock alot in the homeland how he sounds Democrat.
Over at DU and kos they are going crazy over this. They just hate the truth.
"he's one of these childish people posting rants at the bottom the page, you know, Noam Chomsky and all this stuff."
ROTFLOL - exactly, what a perfect description.
Thanks for the ping and the video link. (uhh - next time, warn me not to be drinking anything - I gotta get a new keyboard, now) ;^D
"Over at DU and kos they are going crazy over this. They just hate the truth."
Hey, no fair - you didn't give us any examples. Pleeeaase, don't make us go over to DU and check it out for ourselves, LOL.
Sounds like Dave might be getting Hitchens Disease.
Remember this? (Family Guy opening about Osama)
Good time to watch again.
Hitchens-Lieberman-Koch Syndrome! Libs who actually GET IT!
Before we get too excited, such Lefties will be quietly “quarantined” more than they are already.
The thread above makes the case that it is Adam Gadahn, the American traitor, who wrote most of Bin Laden's material. Gadahn is 28yrs old. It sounds like something an immature lefty would write. It comes across to me like a screed of the Symbionese Liberation Army from back in the seventies or assorted other radicals acting out a teenage rebellion.
Gadahn is writing every cliche current in radical circles for his master who would, no doubt, punish him severly if he realized how ridiculous he sounded.
"..Gadahn is the son of Jennifer and Phil Gadahn. Gadahn's Jewish paternal grandfather, Carl Pearlman, was a prominent surgeon and on the Board of Directors of the Anti-Defamation League; his paternal grandmother, Agnes Branch, was an editor for The Chronicle Christian Newspaper. Before Adam's birth, his father, originally Phil Pearlman, converted to Christianity and changed his name to "Gadahn," derived from the name of the Biblical figure "Gideon". Gadahn's family raised and butchered goats in accordance with halal food requirements for sale to Muslim groceries on a farm in Winchester, in Riverside County, California. Adam was homeschooled until mid-1995, when at the age of 16 he moved in with his grandparents in Santa Ana, California. Adam was described by former friends as a "loner" as well as a "follower" who had little experience in social situations..."
Gadahn is the son of a self-hating Jew who, although the son of a prominant surgeon chose to convert to Christianity and make his living Slaughtering goats for Muslims like the left-coast weirdo he undoubtably is. Not that it matters in cases of treason, but Adam Yahiye Gadahn had no chance whatever to turn out right.
Yes, except for the part where Osama talks of lower taxes. Not something you usually hear coming out of a dem’s mouth.
1. OBL has figured out that the left is his ally in the WOT and that they are incredibly gullible (remember, these are the folks that resolutely refused to believe that Joe Stalin was a bad guy, even after the Soviets had denounced Uncle Joe, and thought that Pol Pot was being slandered by Nazi symps).
Try and read what OBL says with moonbat glasses on. Read that way, he doesn't seem like such a bad guy, does he? In fact, he makes a lot of sense. These folks have figured out that the American left will be their "useful idiots" and all they need is a little stroking. The stroking has commenced and it will be at least partly successful.
2. Stroking aside, the real message was pretty explicit, convert or die. That's what our enemy thinks the war is about, even if our leaders still have their fingers in their ears. I don't think that merits giggling about how silly he is. Giggling makes it seem as if we are fighting a cartoon character. If so, he's a cartoon character that killed 3,000 Americans six years ago.
3. Yes, the rhetoric is silly. But folks who believe in that sort of thing control congress and many of our states. So even though it is silly, it has a strange hold on a small majority of our populace. Silly but powerful?
