The Immortal vs. The Undead

Given the reports in 2002 (just before the last election) that Osama bin Laden had died in the USA's attack on Afghanistan, and yesterday's report that bin Laden may be dead again, this time from typhoid, when Bill Clinton says in his interview with Fox "News"...
But at least I tried [to kill Osama bin Laden]. That’s the difference in me and some, including all the right wingers who are attacking me now. They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try and they didn’t…I tried. So I tried and failed.
... the former president may be selling himself short. Clearly, he DID kill bin Laden, perhaps more than once, but the wiley chieftan of Al Qaeda can rise from the grave, fueled by the redirected power of American voting machines.

The contest between bin Laden's ability to resurrect himself and Dick Cheney's unnatural immortality will come down to a terrible war of attrition. Can Dick Cheney's dead and shriveled heart, swollen on the blood sacrifice of thousands of American soldiers and tens of thousands of Iraqi men, women and children, keep the staggering Vice Presidential animated corpse from crumbling to dust before bin Laden is killed in a year BETWEEN American elections?

Only if a new source of blood is found.
