Bin Laden Dead

It appears that we got Bin Laden, hiding in a mansion in Pakistan.

I guarantee that the from the right the wingnuts will try to spin this against Obama and the hand-wringers on the left will find something bad about this. The former can never say anything positive about the President and the latter can never say anything positive about the US or the American people.

But to hell with both of those groups. Bin Laden was the leader of some medieval thinking religious hate-mongers whose vile attack precipitated the events of the past horrible decade. His death closes it and will be a political game changer. Obama pulled a Lincoln and will have tremendous political capital, lets hope he spends it wisely.
