Osama bin Dead?

Osama is dead? Is this just a ploy to sell CD's?

I'm sitting around Sunday night and see a tweet that the President is going to make an announcement. I couldn't possibly figure out what it could be. I knew Momar's youngest son was killed recently, so I thought about that. I got concerned that maybe the President was going to announce he was sick or something and had to temporary step away or step down.

Needless to say, the last thing that crossed my mind was Osama bin Laden. This guy has been a ghost for almost a decade now. He's like a bearded ninja or something. Now, it has been announced that he's dead. Not, Tupac or Elvis type of dead, but "Old Yeller" dead.

Okay, every reader under 35 years old is Googling "Old Yeller" right now. Anyway, Osama bin Laden has "gone on" to meet his 70-something virgins. Something that started a decade ago has now temporarily been brought to a halt. Sure, another leader will surface some where. After all, Osama had more kids than Evander Holyfield.

But, for at least 24 hours, can idiot Republicans and cowardly Democrats get along? There are people flooding the streets across the country waving American flags.  We have unity for the first time since 9/11!  I don't need MSNBC comparing President Obama to Chuck Norris for killing bin Laden any more than I need FOX News running a story of "Barack Kills an Eldery Man."

For 24 hours, just shut up and think of all of the people who died directly or indirectly from what Osama bin Laden did a decade ago.

  1. Hey Q, I didn't know anything till I got back from the grocery store and my man blurted it out. We have been watching the news the entire time. What a great day for those that lost families.

  4. I laughed at the Old Yeller reference. I've used that analogy once or twice and always got "WHAAA?" reactions from people...

  6. I figured "Old Yeller" would throw some people off, but then again, that's what Wikipedia is for, right? Use it, lazy youngsters! LOL!

  8. You know what is driving me absolutely bat shit crazy, Q? On Twitter and on Farcebook, so many people are saying, "Obama did not kill Bin Laden!" It's like, "COME ON, PEOPLE! The POTUS ordered the hit, dammit!" I think if W gets to say "Mission Accomplished!" then folks need to let Barry have his moment and we all need to just stop the hatin' for a minute and be proud of our military for carrying out a mission with precision - and TRULY getting the mission accomplished!

  9. Yeah, the hate is in full effect for sure. I don't know why it matters who gets the credit, but the person in charge should get it. If Coach A has a good football team, gets eliminated from the playoffs and leaves the team, and then next year Coach B comes in and wins the championship, then guess who gets to hold the trophy and pop champagne? 'Nuff said.

  10. But what about the idiot Democrats and the cowardly Republicans? :)

    Nice post my friend. Definitely not a moment to be gloating cause our guy done good OR being petty about him not deserving credit. What matters is that there's finally (hopefully) some tiny amount of closure for everyone affected by 9/11.

  11. @ Erin - Thanks! I agree! "Closure" is the keyword. A lot of families are at ease this week just knowing that the mastermind behind 9/11 won't hurt anyone else.
