Osama, You’re Fired! OR Mission Accomplished!
Personally, I don’t feel jubilant. I feel like we have spend a decade and a few trillion dollars because of this man… and while I am sure the guy who actually pulled the trigger will do great on Letterman, I see it more like getting a “C-” on a test that would have cost you your scholarship if you had gotten a “D.” That’s over. Phew.
On the flip side, any fantasy the Republicans were having about making Obama a one-term president is all but dead now. The left will object to Obama on issues like Pakistan’s sovereignty in this case, Guantanamo still existing, and not being far enough out of the Middle East. The left is pathetically self-loathing and self-destructive. I don’t know how the right will manage to spin this. Hopefully, it will take a few days.
But somehow, getting off a plane after getting this news somewhere high over Vegas, and writing about box office doesn’t seem sane. And so, I shan’t.
ADD. 11:15p PDT – According to Buzzfeed, the photo that allegedly shows Obama bin Laden’s dead Skull, shot throuw the eye, is fake and has been floating around for a couple of years.
