Last Night's South Parkposted by The Vidiot @ 11:05 AM Permalink was actually kind of brilliant. In it, terrorists struck in "Imaginationland"and the guys at the Pentagon were all "The terrorist have destroyed our imagination!"
Which is actually a pretty clever social commentary.
So, when I read this story:
Excerpt: The suicide attack that killed up to 136 people and shattered former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's joyous return from exile bore the hallmarks of a warlord tied to al-Qaida and the Taliban, authorities said Friday. Forensic experts studied a severed head to determine the bomber's identity.It made me chuckle.
EVERYTHING is blamed on al-Qaida these days.
Bombing in Karachi? al-Qaida.
Threatening video tapes? al-Qaida
Trouble in Anbar Province? al-Qaida
Pipeline explosions? al-Qaida
Failure in Afghanistan? al-Qaida
Failure in Iraq? al-Qaida
Toilet clogged? al-Qaida
You get my drift. The terrorists really HAVE destroyed our imagination. The powers that be can't seem to come up with anything besides al-Qaida as the culprit behind every dirty deed that is done anywhere.
When the reality of what's really going on doesn't take all that much imagination at all.
