Memo to Pundits: Osama Doesn't Give a Fuck

All across the country--from the high-rises of Manhattan to the medium-rises of Washington, DC--pundits, amateurs, and cranks are trying to grasp the impact of Osama bin Laden's latest tape on the election. Is bin Laden supporting Dubya, given how polarizing the current president has been? Is he supporting Kerry, thinking that John-John would let him off the hook? Or did Bush let him off the hook by letting him get away at Tora Bora? Or is bin Laden supporting who he doesn't want, knowing Americans would likely vote for the other guy? Or does Osama realize that Americans would realize what he's up to, so he's actually supporting who he really supports, calculating that Americans would vote for who he supports under the assumption that they're not supposed to vote for him?

ReverseVoteSwap.org would like to remind our pundit friends that Bush and Kerry are going to do the exact same thing in the Middle East. Osama bin Laden realizes this because he's not an idiot. To sum up, Osama doesn't give a fuck who wins the stupid election. Sorry!
