Is it midnight in Iran yet?
Posted by: McQ on Tuesday, August 22, 2006

Shark reminded me it's the 22nd and it's slipped by pretty quietly so far. More from James Taranto.

I hate it when Doomsdays are a bust. It means all those people who went into the hills to await the end of time are going to return and want their stuff back.

I found the Mahdi, the 12th Imam, He is running a Stop and Rob near my house and he listens to Hip hop, reads his Koran, and wears a Snakes on a Plane T-Shirt.
His name is Azquief Bin Hussien and he told me the first Son of a Camel he is going to have beheaded is that ass clown Ahmadenejad for blowing his cover.

Not me. I went to get doomsday supplies at Publix last night, and got distracted and only bought a couple of cannisters of Cheetohs. And I’ve already eaten one of those.

Good thing for me the Iranians didn’t follow through. Well, at least they didn’t follow through against Americans. I hear some oil-drilling Romanians were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Probably because of Romania’s foreign policy, according to some folks around here. Or maybe the Romanians helped engineer a coup in Iran six hundred years ago. Or something. In any case, it’s sure not the Iranians’ fault. We all know that they’re actually innocent noble savages.

I have this fond-but-futile hope that Ahmadenejad and his psycho friends will do a Heaven’s Gate.

I tend to discount all the "Numerology People" that tie all Islamist actions to "special dates".

April 13th? I see angry white men in my crystal ball.....err...sorry...that gig ended with the DC snipers. No, I see in my crystal ball that Apr 13th is a "Muslim-significant Day", and could be the key to a Major Terrorist Attack!!!! It is the Day when the Prophet’s Camel kneeled to the Messenger of Allah for the first time without spitting in his Holy Never-to-be-Depicted Face. So like 218 other days in 1200 years of Muslim History, Apr 13th has High Significance.

Add in the other hacks and flacks who were clueless DC lawyers who had never been to the ME, or Israelis hawking "We are the Most Knowledgable People on the PLanet - no other people have dealt with Muslims so well...", therefore though I am a falafel maker in Haifa, in America I pose as a "security expert" to credulous American media. They are now "terrorism experts" that pull out "anniversaries" as the key to understanding When the "evildoers". Adding them onto the 218 Islamic days of high significance. Day Istanbul fell? Gotta watch out that day! Day of Binnies birth? Could be highly worth being more vigilent! 9/11 anniversaries? Ditto. Yom Kippur War start.? YEp. Add that one! Napoleon’s date when he had Ottomans in Egypt surrender...wow! Another date!

Which piles up the dates to over 300 and makes it all meaningless crap.

It appears Islamoids strike from hate and grievances, and strike purely when they think they are ready to strike.

The only one who tied anything to this date was our buddy, the president of Iran.

Of course you do. And so do those you run with. After all, the End of Days folks aren’t voting for Democrats.

It always fascinates me that there are literally millions on the right side of the political spectrum who believe in the whole End of Days nonsense. Bush is literally in office because of these crazies. But of course it is only the left that is loony.

No - Bush is literally in office because Al Gore was a buffoon in 2000 and ran a horrible campaign. And Bush is STILL in office because 9-11 happened and the Kerry campaign failed as well.

Oh, and this little tidbit... "I hate it when Doomsdays are a bust." ... I believe it’s called sarcasm MK. You might want to look it up and try it some time.

It always fascinates me when those of your ilk take an obviously sarcastic point and attempt to make it into something it isn’t for some twisted point that only they seem to understand.

But it doesn’t surprise me anymore, that’s for sure.

Sometimes I write posts slamming mk, like I did yesterday morning, and later think "I was probably too hard on him. Maybe I should give him the benefit of the doubt on some things."

And then I read stuff like the above from mk, and think "Nope."

MK, don’t be so harsh on yourself. With treatment, I am sure that something will turn around.
