Thanks for chiming in, Ayman al-Zawahri

Lending further credence to the theory that Obama haters are the moral equivalent of murderous terrorists comes this lil nugget of news from NBC News:

CAIRO, Egypt - Al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri has criticized President-elect Barack Obama, calling him a demeaning racial term implying that Obama is a black American who does the bidding of whites.
In an audio message which appeared on militant Web sites Wednesday, al-Zawahri said that Obama is "the direct opposite of honorable black Americans" like Malcolm X. He called Obama a "house negro."

I don't even know where to start with this one. So, I won't, because I'll probably just veer off into an hour-long tirade about the contrasts between MLK and Malcolm, touching on how I think Malcolm's approach certainly had its merits, but even he was sold out from within when all was said and done.
Besides Charlie Dawg, seen here without Krazy Glow-in-the-Dark-Eyes ...

... told me she thinks the sad, makes-me-question-democracy news of Ted Stevens' loss in Alaska needs to go noted for without him, she says, she never would have known that the Internet isn't just a truck that you dump all sorts of things on. That, in fact, it's a series of tubes. Yet, she can't figure out why her staff sent her an Internet last week, and she just got it today.

Finally, today's a tough day for me; three years since my mom died. They're right when they say it never goes away. So, if you're the praying type, by all means, prayers would be appreciated. Thanks.
