This calls for impeachment.

/and he should start firing his top aids.
 
2005-07-15 06:44:02 PM  
In other news, 35% of respondants in several key Muslim countries still support this asshole.
 
2005-07-15 06:48:10 PM  
Ah, that's a better headline... approval rating. heh.
 
2005-07-15 06:48:16 PM  
Well, it could be that

a. His supporters are killing themselves
b. They aren't responding to surveys like they used to before killing themselves
 
2005-07-15 06:49:00 PM  
Who?
 
2005-07-15 06:55:33 PM  
I thought we captured him in a spider hole? Oh, no. That was the other guy.
 
2005-07-15 06:59:04 PM  
Alternate headline: 35% of Muslims in the Middle East support bin Laden

Another alternate headline: Populace of Middle Eastern islamic countries is 35% comprised of people who will admit, on the record, that they support bin Laden.

/Is the glass half-empty or half-full?
 
2005-07-15 07:01:12 PM  
I begin to question if there really is a Bin Laden.

Brodan: I begin to question if there really is a Bin Laden.

Yeah, maybe this is just a really long episode of Candid Camera.

In other news, he has higher support in some places than the Chimp does in his own country.

That says something, I am just not sure what.

35% in Indonesia, but 60% in Jordan and 51% in Pakistan. Musharraf is far more friendly to the United States than the people of Pakistan.

I agree with 5000 gallons of toothpaste he is losing supporters at about the rate of 2-5 a day.... i mean with those numbers.....lol

i keed since apparently we are not looking for the guy or anything, since we have our forces deployed somewhere else... go figure
 
2005-07-16 01:27:10 AM  
Oh for farks sake

2005-07-16 01:30:32 AM  
I blame bush
 
2005-07-16 01:31:32 AM  
Well, he's been dead awhile.
 
2005-07-16 01:34:31 AM  
Well, he is about 100k civilians behind GWB.
 
2005-07-16 01:35:15 AM  
Holy shiat, Bin Laden has AIDS?
 
2005-07-16 01:36:50 AM  
Don't blame me.
I voted for lin Baden.
 
2005-07-16 01:39:57 AM  
whatever happened to the capture(from where he is already being held) of binladen after bush was elected?

oh well. if there isn't oil where binladen is, bush just don't care.

oil is power. oil is master. oil is too slippery on the strippers brass pole.........
 
2005-07-16 01:40:01 AM  
Bush's went down too today. If Osama works hard maybe he can catch up.
 
2005-07-16 01:42:45 AM  
and what would BL's penis gourd think?

/you know someone has to ask that
 
2005-07-16 01:43:06 AM  
But we don't care where he is, right? ATTACK IRAQ!
 
2005-07-16 01:43:09 AM  
It's hard to work on your approval rating when you're stuck in a cave most of the time. Can't travel the land giving speeches and kissing babies. Maybe he should put a little more effort into his next video. Have P. Diddy produce it or something.
 
2005-07-16 01:44:13 AM  
Alternate headline for anyone who know statistics at more than a 7th grade level: 35% of Muslims that participated in this survey in the Middle East support bin Laden
 
2005-07-16 01:47:57 AM  
I don't like his stance on my life.

/capitalist American heathen
 
2005-07-16 01:47:57 AM  
Someone, please post that laughing colonial guy. I know he can find some humor in this situation.
 
2005-07-16 01:48:17 AM  
Freak

I'm against killing people and all that but I really dig the arabian music they put on all those militant propaganda videos. There's this video of snipings with a totally sweet vocal counterpoint thing going on.

I am soooo glad I wasn't eating or drinking anything when I saw that.
I'm fresh out of keyboards.

Osama needs one of those color coded terror alert scales like we have. The Bush administration has been using that thing to try to scare us for years. Why Osama doesn't have one of his own is a mystery to me.
 
2005-07-16 01:52:56 AM  
You know you could probably make a better case against Bush than Osama
/just saying
/no one really knows anything
 
2005-07-16 01:54:53 AM  
Confidence or support, which is it?

Checkout the Amish chich in the personals today!
 
2005-07-16 01:57:43 AM  
So then, the thing I should take away from this is:

Wow, Bush is only polling 7 points higher than bin Laden? Sucks for him.

Right?

Sweet.
 
2005-07-16 02:01:39 AM  
OH SNAP!!!

35 - 42, its just a 7 point spread!!!

A touchdown by Bin Laden will tie the game!!

/holy crap that's morbid

/someone shoot that guy
 
2005-07-16 02:02:50 AM  
Obviously this is not a poll of Gore supporters. They would have gotten a much higher number if it were.

Not nearly as scary as the 51% that voted for Bush.
One should be encouraged by these numbers, that's lower than I expected.

mistergecko

I thought the Amish were against electricity; the first of her five favorite things is her 'walkman.' Is there some sort of battery loophole in the Amish code? Maybe it's a farm implement I haven't heard of.

(Sorry about the threadjack, I realize how important surveys like this are.)
 
2005-07-16 02:05:33 AM  
In other news, Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.
 
2005-07-16 02:05:52 AM  
And support for Bin Laden among liberal farkers is nearing 100%.
/just saying
 
2005-07-16 02:07:42 AM  
I didn't think there were that many democrats around.
 
2005-07-16 02:07:52 AM  
Just wait, soon he'll release a tape and it'll jump back up.

People have just had a hard time comprehending his agenda.

/balancing the budget might help too

See, that's why no one likes you. Cuz you say whatever shiat comes into your head without editing.

I've yet to meet a farker, liberal or otherwise, who "supports" Bin Laden. They may hate Bush, they may loathe republicans, but no one "supports" Bin Laden.

dumbass.

mr lawson: And support for Bin Laden among liberal farkers is nearing 100%.

Why would liberals support a right-wing religious fanatic?

Cause he hates Bush.
