When three Navy SEALS took simultaneous shots at Somali pirates as they bobbed at sea, we learned what just released photos of dead terrorist in Osama Bin Laden’s compound tell us: Navy SEALS don’t miss.
Ignore hype we need to release OBL’s gruesome photo asap to prove he’s dead to quash impending drumbeats of a U.S. conspiracy he’s not. Why doesn’t the Pentagon issue a psy-ops press release that Osama is bunking with Elvis, in a plush safehouse, enjoying 72 virgins and, while the weather is perfect in heaven, hell is hot.
You know they know…especially if they are watching American networks, the support for the troops, The President, lionizing the US Navy SEALS, Obama’s scheduled visit to the memorial for 9-11 victims in New York Thursday, his surge in the polls, no longer on the ropes.
Deep down, as they lie on cots or beds of sand, shaking scorpions out of boots, double checking their AKs, the clock is hitting midnight, and if we listen hard, we just might hear hearts pounding a world away…Even the most cocky and arrogant among them understands there’s a reckoning and is fighting The Fear, fighting Uncle Sandman to stay awake, even as he slips away, clutching his weapon, nodding off into another nightmare ….then bolts upright…Is he wondering:
Did I hear a noise? A helicopter? Are SEALS coming for ME? Is tonight MY night?

So what if they can deliver big blocks of electoral votes if they don’t jive with with what he Stands for, asks Moore in an open letter to Caroline Kennedy asking the Obama running mate adviser to toss her hat into the ring. It could also chill gripes about Sen. Hillary Clinton and conjure excitement over party roots. Read the rest of this entry »

We knew it would only be a matter of time before Paris riffed back at the “white-haired dude” for gigging Obama with the hyped sin of celebrity by association. He may well have to watch his back with John McCain’s Hollyweird message evoking McCarthy, and keep new text message buds like George Clooney at Blackberry length.
With Clooney reportedly advising Barrack on body language, next thing you know, Paris will be putting out feelers for Sen. John Edwards as her Vice on a Ken and Barbie ticket.
