Shorter bin Laden

(No, that's not a relative.)

Deciphering Al-Qaeda statements is not Chase McInerney's specialty, but I think he flat-out nailed this one:

1) Just 'cause you haven't heard from us doesn't mean we're not still scary; and 2) Let's talk.

If that doesn't sound like a terrorist organization on the ropes, I don't know what does.

I told someone at work this week that "Geez, Tupac Shakur puts out a new CD every year and he's been dead since '96. Why should anyone be surprised when there's a new bin Laden tape?"

Maybe they (or al-Jazeera) should call it a "remix." It might get slightly less disrespect over here in Skirt Heaven.
