I had a post about marriage equality I was going to put up today, but instead, let me just say this:
Holy shit, we killed Osama bin Laden.
I’m still speechless – this doesn’t seem real. My reactions, more or less in order:
(1) When I opened my news reader this morning, the first headline was a story from CNN, “Stocks set for higher open after death of Osama bin Laden.” I think I did a classic comedy double-take.
(2) The Republicans who were planning to run for president must be crying tonight. There’s no way in hell they’re going to beat Obama in 2012 now.
UPDATE: I wrote this post quickly while still half-asleep, after turning on my computer in the morning and seeing the news headlines. I’ve since had time to collect my thoughts and have written a lengthier account of my position.
