NEWSWEEK -- Newsweek wonders if Osama Bin Laden won't be caught just in time to help the GOP keep its stranglehold on U.S. politics. If not, it theorizes that the GOP may try to remind people about Osama as a way to keep them voting for the power-party instead of switching over to the flower-party who will undoubtedly promise an end to the wars.
I wouldn't be surprised if Osama is captured. Otherwise, it's pretty flimsy to say "Hey, vote for us. Remember Osama?" What is that, a request for more time? We remember him. He's in a cave cut off from the rest of the world somewhere on the Pakistani border and after five years, yeah, we remember, you still haven't caught him. And that's precisely what the donkey will say as it runs circles around the elephant.
