Take a Hit of Crack and Shut the Hell Up, Rush

It's common knowledge (at least in intelligence circles) that Osama bin Laden probably released his infamous pre-election videotape (warning of an attack against America if Bush was re-elected) to help get Bush re-elected. So anyone with any sense should assume that when al Qaeda's No. 2 releases a videotape citing the Democrats' anti-war legislation as "proof of Washington's defeat" that he probably wants the bill defeated. Why would al Qaeda want the U.S. to leave Iraq? The longer we're there the more recruits they'll get, the more U.S. image abroad will suffer, and the more our intelligence and military resources will be distracted. Of course, if you're Rush Limbaugh, you don't really have any sense. Yes, I'm saying a vote against pulling out of Iraq is a vote to let the terrorists keep winning.
"The pull quote in this video is, 'A U.S. bill calling for troop withdrawal from Iraq is proof of Washington's defeat.' No less than bin Laden's No. 2, Ayman al-Zawahri, suggests that the Democrats' vote to withdraw troops, limit funding, is proof of Washington's defeat," Mr. Limbaugh said.

"And here is the ultimate authority in our defeat, the enemy, the man who's trying to defeat us. The man who is supposed to be the brain behind bin Laden released a videotape saying that a U.S. bill calling for troop withdrawal from Iraq is proof of Washington's defeat."

"Now, the question, I guess, that liberals face is this. If you won't believe me when I tell you that Democrats own defeat when it comes to the Iraq war, who are you going to believe?....Maybe will you believe Ayman al-Zawahri? Ayman al-Zawahri calls Democrat actions in Washington defeat -- not just me. So if you're in the drive-by media, if you're a leftist Democrat, who you gonna believe? Pelosi, Reid, me, or Zawahri? Tough call. Al-Qaeda is mocking the Democrats' white-flag legislation."
