Bin Laden

Glad the motherfucker is dead, but it really makes no different. People are responding by saying that Republicans are DOA in the 2012 elections. This is completely absurd--it is 18 months until the election and gas prices are likely to have a greater effect on the election as this. Moreover, this will make absolutely no difference on American foreign policy except to check off one box of so, so many.

Not trying to rain on anyone's patriotic parade, but basically, this is nothing more than a nice event. It changes almost nothing.
