Bin Laden Votes!?

So, in the tradition of halloween and the spirit of privilege supposedly afforded the Bin Laden clan (if you're a Moore conspiracy buff), the right horrible Osama Bin Laden has risen up in a recent video, and placed his support for...?

Well, on the face of it, he's given Bush the thumbs down.

But, remember, there are layers to this guy: he knows full well what his standings are in the US hustings, and surely knows that 'the enemy of my enemy is my friend'.
As I've mentioned previously, I think that Bush has a pretty good record of following Bin Laden's script to date, and I'm sure that Bin Laden would prefer to maintain a known and predictable quantity in the white house.
Saying 'boo!' and shaking his fist at GWB is bound to enhance the latter's standing in the minds of the US voters.

Or will it?

The timing of this video, on the eve of the election, is certainly no accident. A lot of people have commented on that, and have followed the same reasoning I have.

Who's right? How many layers are there to this message?

Ultimately, the thing to remember about Bin Laden is that what he wants is unlikely to be in the best interests of the US. So, my advice to any US voters who stumble across this posting before election day is to ignore his nibship. Ignore his threats, his comments. Put him from your mind when you vote.

Vote, and vote as you will!
