Dreams of Propaganda Inadequacy
I had a dream last night. In this dream, I found out why Osama bin Laden’s beard looks so different in the “new” photo from the upcoming video. He had shaved it off in order to disguise his appearance, but had a false one put on for the video so his “followers” would recognize him. In the video, he revealed the reason he required such drastic disguise measures was because we was now … in America. And preparing to martyr himself.
On the new season of “Dancing with the Stars.”
Then he showed a clip of himself practicing choreographed dance routines, and also plugged his upcoming appearance on “The View.” He claimed he’d once put a fatwa out against Rosie O’Donnell, but loved the show since Whoopi had joined it.
It was a really scary dream.
Update: My dream was not exactly psychic. Bin Laden’s actual video talks about global warming, his position on a flat tax, and comments on our do-nothing Democratic Congress. In other words, he sounds like he is running for President. Which is even scarier than my dream on one level, and oh-so-boring on another. The man behind the 9/11 attacks now sounds like Just Another Politician. With a bad face toupeé.
