CNN is reporting that the US has the body of Osama bin Laden. President Obama will be speaking shortly.

Holy crap!

Time to fix the economy. For reals, this time.

EDIT:

Ironically, the Random Quote Machine at the bottom of the page right now for me was one of Grimis saying "Nothing's Shocking Anymore." I can safely say, seeing this headline was a total shock. Time to dance in the streets.

Put the security level back to green in two weeks, disassemble the military machine, let people greet their loved ones in airports?

And keep our shoes on, yes.

But the old levels thing has been scrapped - didn't you see our new front page widget?

What we do NOW is give out a few high fives. We can go back to worrying about everything else in the morning.

So when Obama released his birth certificate last week and said "I have better things to deal with," he wasn't kidding.

The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

Nope. Bin Laden has already named people to take over if in case something were to happen to him, and I'm not watching FoxNews.

So, somewhere out there, there's a person who shot Osama Bin Laden dead. Imagine being that person, imagine everyone knowing you're that person, and then realize he (or she's) probably not allowed to admit to being that person. Harsh.

Also, Obama gave the order to go in, then made jokes about his birth certificate and Donald Trump to a media core who would be back the next night to report on it. This is going to be mythologized as the polar opposite to "The Pet Goat."

That's good, because judging by my Twitter timeline several Fox affiliates around the country cut off news coverage at midnight or earlier (midnight for me here in NYC, of all places!!) whereas other network affiliates are still running coverage as I type this (it's currently 12:30a here).

Some people apparently got NO coverage at all from their local Fox stations. Guess those reruns of The Cleveland Show were more important?

If they don't show the body, the Hitler is in Argentina stories make the rounds for decades.

@ManMadeMoon seen this? Idiots RT Unbelieveable but true Fox News labels death of Osama as 'OBAMA Bin Laden dead' http://yfrog.com/h3k4xdmj

Local Fox affiliates have nothing to do with Fox News.

I am, of course, talking about Fox network news coverage and not the Fox News Channel.

I'm guessing that even if there's a way to tell which member of the team fired the fatal bullet, that's not something you want out there as general knowledge. If identified, that person would need tighter security than Salmon Rushdie.

But among the Special Ops forces and Intel types? Legendary status for life.

Maybe someday we'll hear about some details, like happened with the Glomar Explorer mission...

(Edit: Forgot to say good riddance to the bastard.)

I don't think there's much chance of that. Even RedState.com posted an article endorsing Mark Begich, the Democratic nominee. The article was later changed to simply say don't vote for Stevens.
