But just wait 'til Osama
gets hold of the Super Soldier Serum
Two-for-one Friday ...
FROM THE BOY-WHO-CRIED-WOLF DEPT.: Al Qaeda has nukes, says World Nut Daily:
Lost an eye? Is it just me, or did you always imagine secret nuclear tests to be a bit more dangerous than two 10-year-old boys playing with pointy sticks? Like: It's all fun and jihad until someone loses an eye!
Last week, Hamid Mir's credibility skyrocketed when he accurately predicted in Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin and later in WND the imminent release of a new recorded communiqué from bin Laden through al-Jazeera, the Arabic TV network. Two days later, bin Laden's tape was the focus of international news coverage.
"If you think that my information and analysis about bin Laden's location is correct," said Hamid Mir, "then please don't underestimate my analysis about his nuclear threat also."
Mir said that he met with an Egyptian engineer last week who lost an eye after one of bin Laden's nuclear tests in the Kunar province of Pakistan. The Pakistani journalist said the encounter with the engineer greatly disturbed and depressed him since it provided further assurance that a nuclear nightmare for America is about to dawn.
I think more likely than during a nuclear test, that engineer lost his eye trying to read a World Nut Daily hyperlink. I mean, is that mess in the first paragraph quoted above enough to drive you blind or what?
Anyway, color me, oh, a wee bit skeptical about some one-eyed guy who told some other guy who told Joseph Farah (!) that al Qaeda is testing nuclear weapons in a province of Pakistan that doesn't even fucking exist.
That's right, Kunar province is actually in Afghanistan, not Pakistan.
Maybe the Egyptian engineer lost his sense of direction along with his eye. Or maybe, just maybe, when you make shit up on the fly just to scare people, having the first fucking clue about what you're talking about is ... feh! Details!
HOTAIR.COM WATCH: What we learned in the first week of Michelle Malkin's new hate site ...
- You may have never seen anyone idiotic enough to wear them in public (unless you happen to work out at the same gym as Pamela), but apparently enough right-wing eliminationist T-shirts are being sold to fund a slick multimedia Web operation. (Of course, one suspects that "T-shirt sales" are funding prototypical rightwing subsidy client Hotair.com the same way "olive oil imports" built Las Vegas.)
- Michelle Malkin has cloned herself, twice. This is how she posts on her blog while flying cross-country, appearing on TV or sleeping. Really, it's not her husband Jesse ... it's one of her clones.
- "Islamofascist" looks really dumb in print. It sounds even dumber spoken. And when Michelle Malkin says this made-up word on one of her little streaming videos, America's literacy rate drops four percentage points.
- Some Latino musicians reworking the National Anthem is a "despicable act" that will "galvanize American citizen (sic)." Good thing Michelle warned her readers to "sit down" before reading the dangerous lyrics. Wouldn't want a million wingnuts having strokes at the sight of "Oh say can you see, a la luz de la aurora/Lo que tanto aclamamos la noche al caer?" ... "The traitors in Washington must pay for this," one commenter warns. Fuck yeah!
