Osama's not a splatter: After suffering nearly three years of stage fright, the world's most wanted piece of excrement made a video appearance just days before Americans go to the polls to vote.
Both the Kerry campaign and the Bush administration will use Osama's appearance to their advantage. Kerry will once again decry the "outsourcing" of Tora Bora. Bush will simply ask: "Who do you trust to go after this guy?"
If the polls are any indication, Americans overwhelmingly feel that President Bush would do better in the war on terror. As national security becomes a more and more important issue, Kerry's numbers correspondingly decline.
This was bad news for Kerry and unless he can turn the media focus back to the economy, he's in trouble.
