José Ramos Horta, East Timor's Prime Minister, took the spirit to a whole new level, when he wished Osama bin Laden a Merry Christmas. A Nobel Peace Prize winner he may be, but there is a fine line between "good will" and insanity.

Said the PM of East Timor, "I have no illusions that my message will achieve any change, but I thought that here I had a chance that Osama bin Laden would listen and maybe, just maybe, my message would touch his conscience." ..... And I thought Saddam had cracked the greatest joke of the year (see previous post).

Wonder what Osama has to say to that. I bet he hates Christmas, if anything, for he always seems to end up in Santa's "bad boy" list.
