GottaLaff: Using the word "impotent" doesn't seem to be the wisest way to insult any man, let alone the lunatic who already killed 3,000 Americans.

What a brilliant move by Bush's Homeland Security adviser Frances Townsend. Um, Ms. Townsend? Your job description? The keyword is Security.
Seemingly taunting Osama bin Laden, President Bush's homeland security adviser said Sunday the fugitive al-Qaida leader is "virtually impotent" beyond his ability to hide away and spread anti-American propaganda.
1) Using the word "impotent" doesn't seem to be the wisest way to insult any man, let alone the lunatic who already killed 3,000 Americans. And 2) What, "bring it on" wasn't stupid enough?

Maybe it was just a slip of the tongue.
In appearance on two Sunday talk shows, she used the "virtually impotent" reference both times, suggesting the language was chosen with careful purpose.
Alrighty then. Maybe they've been told that Bin Laden really is "impotent" and no longer much of a threat.
The consensus of the nation's top intelligence analysts is that bin Laden's terrorist network is anything but impotent.
