Looking carefully at that which is unseen.

Ding Dong Bin Laden’s Dead – Again

I believe that under the Professional Code of Modern Blogging Ethics I am obligated, in order to keep my blogging license, to post something about this the third alleged death of Osama bin Laden.

Big effin’ whoop. Abraham Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson, John Dewey, Franklin Roosevelt, and John Maynard Keynes are also dead, and their ideas and beliefs continue to torment and corrode what little is left of the American Republic. Congratulations, American Military Industrial Complex, you’ve managed to, after ten years, kill a sick old man who was going to die anyway. Now where do I go to get back my country where I can get on a plane with a 20 ounce diet Dr Pepper in my hand, a Leatherman tool in my pocket, and no TSA fingerprints on my crotch?*

In keeping with the ongoing theme of this blog of looking carefully at that which is unseen, let me point out that Obama, for all his deadness, has actually pretty much won the war and destroyed America.. Pretty neat epitaph, if you ask me – how many of the boobus americanus who are dancing in the streets (as though they personally did anything to accomplish the killing) are not likely to have anything near as interesting in their obituaries.

So. Again, with a hat tip to Commander Zero, the death of Roosevelt did not end in a victory for Nazi Germany. I predict that nothing good will come from this assassination, and, in fact, it and its methods will only serve to further galvanize Pakistan (that would be the country through which the American military’s supplies for Afghanistan flow) against America.

The times. They are interesting.

* Hat tip to the Prepare blog for the idea.

    Query for the GunHobbit this is:
    Shouldn’t it be “Ding Dong Bin Laden’s STILL Dead”?

    FOX News: Dead – Kidney Failure – 2001
    AP, etc: Shot Dead – (complete with Photoshop pic) – 2007
    Personally Eliminated (Vicariously) Thru SEAL Team Member – 2011

    Would have been fun to do a survey of constitutional literacy among the people celebrating OBL’s demise.
