Fruit-of-the-Boom, Times Square Loser – Third Time’s The Curse?
So we got lucky . . . twice. First, the Christmas underwear bomber couldn’t quite get his Fruit-of-the-boom undies to go up in an Allah-be-praised, smell-of-burning-flesh, conflagratory cry. Second, the smiling man Shazhad who probably seemed like the nicest guy to the lady who sold him the Nissan Pathfinder apparently didn’t pay too much attention to his bomb-making lessons and left a trail of clues starting with the smoking vehicle. He should be praising Allah he did not make it back to his Taliban masters because they would have cut off his hands and his toes for such a half-assed terror job.
Can we really afford to see whether the old saying that the third times’s the charm is true? Can we really afford to have any one of these evil-doers finally do it right?
It certainly would help if we had a leader who called a duck a duck, a bomb a bomb and evil, evil. It certainly would help if we had a leader who said what we need said: “We are at war with an evil group which likes to burn and maim and destroy in the name of God, and we are going to stop them, surround them and [fill in what you like I personally like Former Gen. Colin Powell’s line here].”
We need Sarah Palin to be President.
