Obama's week has been all about screwing up his critics' new releases. First, he unveils his birth certificate just days before publication of the birther tome Where's the Birth Certificate? Then he went and killed Osama bin Laden right as he was preparing to release a hot new jihad tape.

According to the Associated Press, a recorded message from bin Laden—it's not clear whether it will be an audio or video release—is "working its way through al-Qaida's media pipeline" as we speak. The timing is coincidental, if unfortunate, so it won't be a goodbye message or anything.
