The funny part is they've been saying 'soon' for like an hour.

I'm disappointed the announcement wasn't about aliens. :-P

(Not that Bin Laden isn't a big deal mind you.)

The crazy thing is I thought the exact same thing once I heard the news.

Bet he gets a ratings spike.

Bet we also get terrorism strikes, too.



It's all symbolic, but I'm still amazed we got him.

I'm really looking forward to the political grandstanding, on both sides over this.

Well, looks like Obama's got the 2012 election won.  I mean, how can the GOP compete?  He only needs to make one campaign ad:

"I got bin Laden."

WOW, a part of me kinda thought they'd never, ever get him! Or at least never know for sure what exactly happened to him.

There's nothing in the Quran about 72 virgins, it's a myth based on weak or unfounded hadiths.

Was much amused by the scenes of celebrating crowds in front of the White House, and I thought Obama's speech was pretty well-planned.

I say we start taking bets on the next target of terrorism. 30 bucks on the statue of liberty.
