Want to see a bumper sticker that will really make you think, cuts straight to the chase (pun intended) and is guaranteed to get your car damaged in some way? Wish I could take credit for it, but I just saw it while cruising the net the other day:

I have my suspicions and the news seems to be hinting that Osama is not far from being caught soon, and it will be interesting to see what happens then. To use an old "red state" analogy, 'what does the dog think he's going to do with the car when he catches it?' Dub will not have the boogey-man to frighten anyone with anymore. Osama in captivity becomes a more effective and efficient communicator to Al Qaeda and the Muslim extremist world, because they simply will not stand for allowing the US/CIA to "disappear" him on a Gulfstream flight. Martyring him is probably the last thing we need to happen, and I have suspicions that Osama has no qualms about it and has been pursuing becoming a "self made martyr". I'm reminded of a scene from "Blazing Saddles" where Cleavon Little as sheriff Bart says," Alright! Nobody move, or the nigger gets it!"  The bottom line, in business terms, is that all scenarios lead to growth for Muslim extremism. The only viable alternative for Dub is that Osama keeps running around "somewhere" killing a few people and providing seeming justification and time for consolidating our hardened military bases to protect America's new Oil resources in Iraq.
