ReInterpreting Headlines

When the headline reads "Bin Laden called 'Impotent'", you should probably assume that it means that Osama Bin Laden's utterances no longer serve as a form of viagra for George W. Bush's soggy polling numbers.

George W. Bush is rapidly descending into the realm of the irrelevant himself, and historians are already writing the epitaph for his presidency - one that although memorable, may well be like Richard Nixon's - not exactly remembered in a positive light.

Bin Laden's latest missives are a rehash of the same old stewing crap that we've heard for years. As far as I'm concerned, the man is merely trying to push buttons like an adolescent boy often will with his teachers.

But...Bin Laden depends as much on Bush as Bush has ultimately come to depend on Bin Laden.
