In an attempt to forget about the disastrous reign of error known as the Bush Administration, GOP operatives at Foxnews had an ingenious idea how about a name changes. With ordinary folks unimpressed by the GOP, why not market the party under a new name – The Tea Party. They’d hold rallies and promote events like a “teabag the white house” protest. After a while folks might start to forget that there ever was a Bush Administration.
It turns out another fellow had the same idea:
Osama bin Laden lamented that al-Qaeda was suffering from a marketing problem and wanted to change the organisation’s name because the West was winning the public relations fight.
In his final writings, he was concerned the group was killing to many Muslims, which was bad for business, and all his old comrades were dead and he barely knew their replacements.
Faced with these challenges, Bin Laden, who hated the
and decried capitalism, considered a most American of business strategies. Like Blackwater, Valujet and Philip Morris, perhaps what al-Qaeda really needed was a fresh start under a new name. United States
The problem with the name al-Qaeda, bin Laden wrote in a letter recovered from his compound in
Pakistan, was that it lacked a religious element, something to convince Muslims worldwide that they are in a holy war with . America
In the end wingnuts and Teabaggers are just the same thing with different names.
