Like usual, Twain said it best: "'I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure."
Because really, and I know this might piss some people off, it feels weird to celebrate the killing of another human being. Just watch your young kids' reaction to the news that our president ordered the killing of Osama Bin Laden and you'll see what I mean. When they ask the very sensible question, "Well why couldn't they have just locked him up forever instead?" You try to explain it. It's complicated, right?
But, that said, the guy did have it coming, and he knew he had it coming, and the cat and mouse game is finally over. It took nearly a decade and an obscene amount of resources, but it's done. And there is no doubt that it was/is a great moment for the US.
And for Obama.
Did you hear Obama roast him during the White House Correspondents Association dinner this weekend? HA! Good stuff -- the video is worth watching. (Obama's got a sense of humor, that's for sure.)
We all know Donald is seething, but it's pretty likely all republicans are a bit miffed. As Late Night host Jimmy Fallon said: 'Bin Laden is dead! Just like the Republicans' chances in 2012.' (Shucks, now that's really too bad.)
Now if only this hilarious tweet from @BitterOldPunk was true: "Oh man I so hope the US soldier who killed Osama is gay." Perhaps they'd never recover...
