Politics and Strange Bedfellows Unite


Tonight I resisted the urge to stay away from Hardball - because I cannot bear to watch Andrea Mitchell and her trowel-sculpted opinions any longer - and found Chris Matthews trying to even the score with his compartmentalized round table. He went at the press for rubber-stamping the Iraq War, although this late in the game it felt like an edition of Friday morning quarterbacking.

Most certainly, Matthews is reading his media fairness numbers and the score has been way too one-sided. The guess here is that old Democratic war machine boss Ed Rendell put him in a headlock in Philly on Monday until Matthews screamed "Uncle!" off camera.

Opinion Journal's John Fund, the infectious strain of Alfalfa from the "Our Gang" films, had the RNC talking points poised for the first mention of WMD. The problem with Fund for most average viewers is that he's as photogenic as Rudolf Hess and as believable as Scott Peterson. It's a good thing his last name fits the motive of the Wall Street Journal or they'd kick him to the curb for sheer elitist stupidity. In his latest book, Stealing Elections, Fund informs the voting public of several meaningless election statistics that have as much relevance to voting as Saddam had to 9/11.

For instance, eight of the nineteen hijackers who attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were actually able to register to vote in either Virginia or Florida while they made their deadly preparations. Think that terrorists vote Democratic? Think again. Polling studies of al-Qaeda operatives in the United States indicate a late surge breaking for the incumbent.

From the Washington (Moonie) Times: al-Qaeda is Voting For Bush, via Campaign Extra! - Mowafaq Al-Tai, a London-educated architect and intellectual, said different types of resistance fighters have different views of the U.S. election. The most pro-Kerry, he said, are the former Saddam Hussein loyalists — Ba'ath Party members and others who think Washington might scale back its ambitions for Iraq if Mr. Kerry wins, allowing them to re-enter civic life. The most pro-Chimp, he said, are the foreign extremists. "They prefer [the preznut], because he's a provocative figure, and the more they can push people to the extreme, the better for their case." Foreign extremists inside Iraq? Might that be al-Qaeda? So there you have it. America's most conservative newspaper says that the folks who killed nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11 want four more years of the Chimperor in office.

The fair and balanced fellowship at FOX also have reported similar al-Qaeda endorsements for the preznut earlier this year:

From - Islamists Declare Spain Truce, Endorse Bush: The London-based Al-Quds al-Arabi said on its Web site that it had received a statement from "The Brigade of Abu Hafs al-Masri (search) (Al Qaeda)" in which the group reiterated its responsibility for the March 11 attacks [in Spain] that killed more than 200 people and wounded more than 1,600. "We change and destroy countries," the statement said. "We even influence the international economy, and this is God's blessing to us." The statement tells American voters that Abu Hafs al-Masri supports the re-election campaign of President Bush: "We are very keen that Bush does not lose the upcoming elections." The statement said Abu Hafs al-Masri needs what it called Bush's "idiocy and religious fanaticism" because they would "wake up" the Islamic world.

Listen here, Poindexter, the preznut's job approval ratings are in the toilet--and if the purpose of Clinton's Resurrection in Philly was to invigorate the Democratic base and especially black voters, let's not trivialize the al-Qaeda constituency.

The following was found on a web site which purported to discuss
a statement by al Qaeda (By D. LINDLEY YOUNG
The Modern Tribune - June 1, 2004),


The statement said it supported President Bush in his reelection campaign, and would prefer him to win in November rather than the Democratic candidate John Kerry, as it was not possible to find a leader 'more foolish than you (Bush), who deals with matters by force rather than with wisdom.'

In comments addressed to Bush, the group said:

'Kerry will kill our nation while it sleeps because he and the Democrats have the cunning to embellish blasphemy and present it to the Arab and Muslim nation as civilization.'

'Because of this we desire ... (Bush) to be elected.' "

We must never underestimate the enemy.
Are we doing what they want us to?

And where would the GOP be without our friends from the land of Organized Crime? While La Cosa Nostra does not like to publicly state its political preferences, unless Rudi Guilliani is staring down at them with the RICO statute in hand, two prominent Colombo family soldiers have put their money where their mouths are - they are going for the preznut all the way. The Afghan warlords are back in the heroin business again, and New York City has the taste.

From The Smoking Gun: Federal Election Commission records show that convicted felons John Staluppi and John Rosatti last year each gave the GOP candidates $2000 (the maximum individual donation). The FBI has identified Staluppi and Rosatti--multimillionaires who own auto dealerships in New York and Florida--as members of the Colombo gang. The two Bush supporters are prized Colombo family "earners" who helped finance an insurgent Colombo faction that once sought to dethrone imprisoned boss Carmine "The Snake" Persico (that bloody early-90s mob war left more than a dozen wiseguys dead). They later switched back to the Persico camp after a jailhouse heart-to-heart with their mob superior, one Dominick "Donny Shacks" Montemarano. The duo's role with the Colombo family has been discussed by several turncoat Colombo family members, including ex-captain Salvatore Miciotta, who spoke about Staluppi and Rosatti during 1993 FBI debriefings. Click here for excerpts from one FBI report detailing some of those Miciotta observations about his two former cronies.

Truth be told, I am starting to worry about all this carping for Big John in these last few days by MSNBC. Are they holding their cards on a story that is about to blow the lid off this election either way? Ever since Joe Scarborough - a.k.a Gary Condit with an alibi - made his escape to the Florida panhandle on the eve of the final debate in Arizona, visions of Mayor Daley have been dancing around the ceiling fans in Tallahasee. Keep your eyes peeled, Joe Lockhart, I am sensing negative G's from Scarborough's pseudo-flysuit for Election Night.

Somebody please keep Pat Buchanon away from the scotch cabinet. Every time he mentions John Kerry by name, his eyes roll back in his head all John Ehrlichman-like and several more thousand Cuban plumbers start looking for work.
