COUNTDOWN: Michael Medved the winner

The Daley Report searched the blogosphere and the mainstream mediocracy--only to find the cupboard all but bare. Virtually no one has figured out what Iranian President Mahmoud "Mojo" Ahmadinejad is really up to with this supposed 18-page rant to President Bush.

The Report broke the story here yesterday of the likelihood--not a certainty--that this is the same kind of cease-and-desist letter that Osama bin Laden sent the United States prior to 9/11. And the rest, as they say, is history.

Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, disappointingly, told Matt Lauer on NBC's Today show that there was no significance to the Ahmadinejad letter to the U.S. government beyond some religious and philosophical ranting. It's scary to think no one in the administration--including the intelligence community--is putting two and two together here and connecting the dots. Then again, would they tell us if they were?

The only exception was radio talk show host Michael Medved, who invariably gets so much right when it comes to affairs in the Middle East. As far as we know, he is the only media outlet to carry any part of this dark side of the story about the possible start of a countdown clock toward jihad, now that the Great Satan has refused to see the light and bow en masse before Allah. And for that, he had to endure an hour's worth of domestic moonbats denouncing America as the source of all evil in the modern world. Even Michael seemed somewhat taken aback by the extent of the irrationality on the loose these days.

Lighter moment: While most of the rest of us struggle to pronounce Mojo's full name correctly, Michael's got it nailed. It rolls trippingly from his tongue: Mahmoud Ahmadina-wack-job. Yes, that's about the size of it.

Roscoe you have to read this...

"Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said here Thursday that his letter to President George W. Bush did not concern the nuclear dossier, but rather was an invitation to Islam and the prophets culture."
