Moussaoui Arrives at Supermax

I had forgotten about this.... don't know why I thought about it. I wrote it sometime ago..

Not all of those who died on that terrible day,
Lie peacefully in the ground.
Some burned to a crisp and floated away,
Their bodies never found.

The first to die
In that terrible sky
Were luckier than the last, they had no time to think,
Of what could have been in the not so distance past.

No war was declared, no charges made,
By those who did this terrible deed.
A terrorist's desire, a terror raid,
By those who claim a most peaceful creed.

Little Eichmans some have said, they were there in the tower.
And it is right they burn and cower.
Their sins are they exist in peaceful bliss.
Just living, just humans at work, unknowing.

Yet "God is great!" came the cry from the clear blue sky,
And the dying sent their loved ones a last kiss.
We've caught a few, a few are put away,
And when they complain, we rush to explain...

They have rights, they have rights, they have rights.
And we dare not expect them to obey.
One has been spared not punished for the lost lives
And lives this Day, of lost Mothers and lost wives.

When he paces his cell, let him walk for the lost.
When he is bored, let him walk for the dead.
He should know that this is so, he will never be let go,
And he will never be able to pay the full cost.

I hope he sleeps poorly, dreaming of what he lost.

Obama attacks a hero because of his injuries

Every since I saw the latest attack ad this morning by Hussein's minions I have been waiting for this:

Wondering No More [Jonah Goldberg]

Yep. The day after 9/11, as part of its "get tough" makeover, the Obama campaign is mocking John McCain for not using a computer, without caring why he doesn't use a computer. From the AP story about the computer illiterate ad:

"Our economy wouldn't survive without the Internet, and cyber-security continues to represent one our most serious national security threats," [Obama spokesman Dan] Pfeiffer said. "It's extraordinary that someone who wants to be our president and our commander in chief doesn't know how to send an e-mail."

Well, I guess it depends on what you mean by "extraordinary." The reason he doesn't send email is that he can't use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country. From the Boston Globe (March 4, 2000):

"McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain's encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He's an avid fan - Ted Williams is his hero - but he can't raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball."

There you go, Lefties. Doesn't it make you feel good to attack a man with his physical challenges?

Sadly, I know that down deep any attack on McCain makes you feel good.
