Osama to Sweden: 'You're Safe!'


The meme of the moment among the right-wing bloggers—they've already said it a hundred times or so on The Corner—is that Osama bin Laden's new 'Vote or Die' tape sounds an awful lot like Michael Moore. And they're right: He does sound like Michael Moore. Or, at least, like he's been watching Michael Moore.

Frankly, this makes me wonder if the tape is a hoax. I'm no expert, but I was under the impression that bin Laden was more likely to complain about the Reconquista of Iberia than the Florida recounts and the Patriot Act. (At least he didn't mention Kyoto.)

For the record, the CIA has "a high degree of confidence" that the video is real.
