Who Would the Terrorists Vote For?

Our old pal Sean Hannity is always asking people to ask themselves who the terrorists would vote for and then vote for the other person. He, of course, thinks that terrorists would vote for Kerry. For sometime I've been asking why wouldn't they want to keep Bush in office, especially Osama bin Laden? I mean Bush shows no interest in tracking him down at this point, or any other terrorist group for that matter. If your a ruthless dictator of a country rich with oil and you once threatened the life of his father though, you better watch your step. Anyway, now there seems to be proof that the terrorists would prefer Bush to Kerry. Eric Alterman had this on his site today;

"The next time someone tries to tell you that nobody but fundamentalist Christians, corporate CEOS, and neoconservative ideologues support George Bush's election as president, you tell them that's not fair.
Terrorists do too. Here's a statement from Abu Hafs al-Masri, the Islamic militants who claimed credit for the Madrid train bombings, in support of Bush's election campaign:
"We are very keen that Bush does not lose the upcoming elections," it said.Addressing Bush, it said: "We know that a heavyweight operation would destroy your government, and this is what we don't want. We are not going to find a bigger idiot than you." The statement said Abu Hafs al-Masri needs what it called Bush's "idiocy and religious fanaticism" because they would "wake up" the Islamic world. Comparing Bush with his Democratic challenger, Senator John Kerry, the statement tells the president, "Actually, there is no difference between you and Kerry, but Kerry will kill our community, while it is unaware, because he and the Democrats have the cunning to embellish infidelity and present it to the Arab and Islamic community as civilization."

Oh, by the way, yesterday on Hannity's radio show he actually said that "guns equal peace" I guess that explains why they issue you a gun before you go into battle, because it's so darn peaceful with all those weapons around.
