Sure looks that way, judging from this summary of Craigslist ads in NBC Chicago's website for tickets to an Obama rally in Chicago's Grant Park.
But how do you get to the rally? Drudge says that reporters for the Washington Times, New York Post and Dallas Morning News may have to make other travel arrangements if they want to attend the worship service, uh sorry, rally -- next Tuesday. Seems that they've been kicked off the Obama campaign plane. Honest folks, this has nothing to do with the fact these papers endorsed Senator McCain.
Meanwhile, Reuters reports that Al Qaeda wants the Republicans humiliated. "O God, humiliate Bush and his party, O Lord of the Worlds, degrade and defy him," an Al Qaeda big wig called Abu Yahya al-Libi said in a video sermon posted on the Internet. Hmmm, "Lord of the Worlds," eh? Does Mr. Abu Yahya mean God, or Obama?
Sure looks like the stars are aligning to give Mr. Abu Yahya and his friends what they want. Here's hoping that President Bush and the military can arrange for the Al Qaeda crew to eat some 5.56 mm humiliation and degradation prior to 20 January, since it is unlikely we will be in as good as position to deliver same thereafter.
