“Bin Laden” running for provincial council seat in Philippines

Actually, he sounds pretty chill. If you don’t count his connections to a Muslim insurgent group that’s admitted to having sent 600 people to train in the other Bin Laden’s Afghan terror camps. Or, say, this:

Sharief, a father of nine and husband of a school teacher, has mixed feelings about bin Laden.

While condemning the killing of innocent people in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in the U.S., Sharief said he still is not convinced of bin Laden’s involvement. Muslims have the right to struggle for living conditions, he said.

Does he really look like Bin Laden, though? Bin Laden after a whole lot of carbs, maybe.

going out on a limb….

Just the name alone, never mind the other facts is reason enough to bar him from office. This is of course just my opinion.

I’m surprised he isn’t running as a Democrat in San Francisco.

I think he can beat Hillary for the Democratic nomination.

He was talked out of running in Jerry Nadler’s district.

Name recognition is what it’s all about.
They have Bin Laden,… we’ve got Obama.

Throw in Keith Ellison and we’ve got a party of God

Muslims have the right to struggle for living conditions

Muslims have the right to live – undhimmified infidels, maybe not quite so much.
