lunchtime video!

Today's lunchtime video should act as a reminder to those of us who consider ourselves liberal, radical, leftist, Democrats, democrats etc.: despite popular conservative myths, we do not control the political media. Social liberals control much of the rest of the media (Hollywood, MTV, the values in much of the major network productions, etc.) but the political right is really good at this. Prepare to be upset.

"The political right is really good at this" because, as the piece makes clear, Osama bin Laden's latest communication parrots Democratic talking points.

If you read some of the excerpts yourself and draw your own conclusion sans Tucker Carlson, I think that point is impossible to avoid.

Maybe this is a stupid question, but what's the broader implication of this? So Osama bin Laden is "parroting the DNC" and isn't really talking in Islamic terms, which both seem like reasonable statements to me, but why should anyone be deeply upset by this?
