"Older bin Laden widows think younger wife tipped off US."

See, that's the thing with polygamy. There's always the intrigue... the jealousy....

We should spread that rumor as far as possible.

So it wasn't torture? :(

I smell Showtime series. Big Love meets the Sopranos, set in Pakistan.

Perhaps the real reason for polygamy is that no women are willing to be the only one stuck with someone like that.

Is she wearing fancier burqas all of a sudden?

Pogo said...

She said, Yes, he is the 6 foot man right behind me."

rhhardin said...

I'd think mostly the wives would be pals, taking up the load from each other.

Pogo said...

She had thought he was dead all these years, too, and didn't want to return the insurance money.

“that her priorities and personality are not only ill suited to head a political party or occupy national office, but would lead to a disaster of, well, biblical proportions.”

Heh. Indeed.

This gives a whole new meaning to "raise the red lantern."

JAL said...

I guess I am wondering how she will get her hands on the $25 million.

With that she could buy herself a new identity, a new face and a plane ticket to Geneva. Or Pleasantville, OH, or anywhere but Burkastan.

The wives even dispute who tried to protect their husband in the raid. The youngest was reported to have attempted to save him, sustaining a bullet wound to her calf. But the older wives say they were the ones who rushed to shield him.

I will pay $15 to see these women do a bloggingheads.tv installment with one of the house feminists--preferably Michelle Goldberg. Sure, it would look like the title screen of the Brady Bunch with four cameras going, but it would be worth it.

I know you're joking, so I'm being a dull bore, but women's willpower is not a consideration. Their daddies give them away, or trade them. Like livestock.

And the majority of men wind up unable to start a family or have much of a love life. This aspect takes away a lot of the factors in a Western life that makes life worth living and gives men something to be passionate about.

Polygamy is not about the guys who can marry. It's about the ones who can't. Those who push the system really want to maintain the system that dramatically benefits a minority of men.

It's one of the most miserably things about the Middle East. Combine that with the hunger problem and the low employment and it's a wonder terrorism isn't much worse.

So you believe people like OBL's wives? How much of a partisan hack can you possibly become?

Maguro said...

The great thing about burkas is that you don't even need a new face after you rat out your terror-mastermind husband. Just take off your veil, dye your hair blond and you're good to go.

Over, say, someone like Fentard? Yea sure, I would trust a bin Laden wife over Fentard.

Original Mike said...

@Maguro: Less than satisfying strategy. Her photo ID shows her with the burka on. She'll never be able to get on a plane. Or vote (at least not in Wisconsin)

... the hotness!

Imagine the make-up sex, with multiple wives!

Please, don't ask.

edutcher said...

She had the hots for one of the Team 6 guys - the one with the big snorkel. She figured this would get her a deep dive with him.

PS You don't need polygamy for that kind of nastiness. Isn't that what all those "Real Housewives..." shows are all about?

Not surprised.

Trooper York said...

"See, that's the thing with polygamy. There's always the intrigue ... the jealousy ..."

I know right?

That's why I can't vote for Romney.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Maybe she found out osama was banging the Pakistani housekeeper and has a love child in Karachi.

Trooper York said...

And you thought Mitch Daniels wife was a piece of work. Jeez.

Trooper York said...

I mean informing on you husband so that the Seal's will kill him is a lot worse than beating with a frying pan so he won't run for President.

Phil 3:14 said...

There's a reality show in here somewhere.

Jason said...

Osama bin Ladin masterminded a plan to murder thousands of innocent men, women and children, and then headed an organiztion responsible for the cold-blooded, sadistic murder of untold thousands more.

And then this bitch apparently ratted out her man, which is even worse, in my opinion.

dbp said...

If any of the wives left the compound, they would have to be escorted by a male member of the household. How exactly, would she drop the dime on Osama?

Fred4Pres said...

What did the olderwife call the younger wife: "Bitch!"

That is why I like Big Love, Mormons are just so much more polite.

Peter Hoh said...

"It's a well-known fact that when you have two older wives and then this young one comes along half their age, they don't like it," said one.

Yeah, the dude should have pulled a Gingrich and dumped the two older wives.
