Chalk up a victory for Al Qaeda. Their media strategy has worked perfectly. The good news is that Dem control of one or both houses will result in deadlock on domestic policy. The bad news is that the war on Islamic fascism will grind to a halt as the Dems use their control over the purse strings and their subpoena power to sap the will of the lame-duck Bush administration.

Osama, Ayman al-Zawahiri, the Mad Mullahs, Assad, Khaled Mashal, Mullah Omar and the whole cast of our enemies must be rubbing their hands in glee tonight and shouting “Allahu Akbar” each time a Republican candidate bites the dust. The only bad news, from their point of view, is that Lieberman won easily.
