Senator Rand Paul (R – KY) is threatening to shut-down the Senate and stop it from doing business unless the U.S. insists that Pakistan release Shakil Afridi, the jailed doctor who fingered Osama bin Laden.
Paul said the U.S. “should not give foreign aid to a country whose government is torturing the man who helped us kill Osama bin Laden. We should not be giving foreign aid to any country that is not clearly our ally. This must end, and this week I will renew my push for a vote on this issue, including holding up Senate business to accomplish this goal”.
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, from the Center for Advanced Defense Studies, differed with Paul’s assessment: ”You would be a fool not to recognize that the Pakistanis have nuclear weapons,” he said. “So it’s not surprising that Rand Paul is the one calling for exactly the situation that might drive them to use them”
The United States dropped all criminal charges against al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden yesterday. “It’s rather embarrassing” Attorney General Eric Holder said. “I’m sure if the President had known the charges would be dropped he wouldn’t have killed him. We should probably have some kind of law that states people are innocent until proven guilty, or something.”
Or maybe we just shouldn’t waste time making formal charges against someone we have absolutely no plans to ever bring to trial, but instead shoot on sight. Not that shooting bin Laden was a bad thing, just maybe injudicious if there were actual pending criminal charges against him.
Sometimes we have to interpret the stuff the mainstream media puts out there in the guise of “information”.
1: Michele Bachmann can’t make up her mind until the last minute. She announced at the debate that she had just filed as a candidate.
2: Mitt Romney thinks he has already won the primaries. He spread the love for his GOP rivals while focusing on President Obama – and was careful never to mention Osama bin Laden. Instead he targeted Obama’s failure to turn-around Bush’s recession. It was as if the other six people on stage were just there to fill space to his left and his right – CNN strategically placed Romney in the center of the lineup.
3: Tim Pawlenty is a wimp. Before the debate he was lumping Obama and Romney together for their health care policies, dubbing them “Obamneycare”. At the debate Pawlenty bowed and scraped to Romney as if he thought Romney had already won the primaries, too. Maybe he’s bucking for a Romney/Pawlenty ticket.
4: Michele Bachmann may be a ventriloquist dummy. Her head barely showed above the podium. How do we know her lips were actually moving in sync with the words?
5: Newt Gingrich has nothing new to say. He should change his name to “Oldt”. Of course this turned-out well for him in the debate, since all his campaign people quit on him the day before. But Newt just spewed the same old “Contract On America” garbage – no need for a new script.
Fox News personality Mike Huckabee announced he will not seek the 2012 presidential candidacy for the Republican Party. “All the factors say go, but my heart says no,” Huckabee, who was considered the GOP frontrunner in several Fox News polls, said on his Fox News Channel show. His heart problems probably include taking-on GOP poster-boy Newt Gingrich, President Obama’s popularity since killing Osama bin Laden, and the usual ephemeral life-span of snowballs in Hell.
Ron Paul immediately announced he will run for the third losing time.
What must Muslim porn be like? Pictures of women in burqas taking their glasses off? A man and a woman – in the same room! A video of someone thinking about sex?

My wives keep nagging me to take them out. “We never go anywhere!” they whine, and needle me with “What happened to the fun-loving Jihadi we married?” I keep telling them we can’t leave the compound – we’re in hiding for Allah’s sake! Of course I would love to make a night of it in Islamabad, just to have a good meal – I mean the only pizza place that delivers here is Domino’s! Their crust sucks!
Oh! There is the door bell! Maybe it’s the courier with some new porn!

Why have they not voted Kirstie Alley off of “Dancing With The Stars”? I have camels that are more graceful! It’s a conspiracy – they are rigging the voting because her weight loss is good PR! This is just the kind of thing that makes me wish death to America!
Randy Couture, wrestler and actor in Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables” , would like “to have five minutes with Osama Bin Laden that’s for sure. Every time I go through an airport now I have to put up with that mess, and it’s pretty infuriating.”
Yeah, and all that mass murder was a bummer, too.
