Ding Dong the Witch is DEAD! (And pay no attention to that man behind the curtain)

The news is already several days old, Osama Bin Laden is dead.   I am still in shock I guess, which explains why I didnt post this when it was REALLY news.  America has hated him for so long, now that he’s not around to hate any longer, I feel a bit like a popped balloon.  Not that I spent a lot of time really hating him, but the knowledge that he was still alive somewhere was a big daily slap in the face after 9/11.  Ok, after several days of constant news coverage, I’ve gradually come to terms with it.

What’s really ODD to me, though, is the way the conservatives are trying to spin this–that somehow it was either illegal, or that George W. Bush deserves the credit for his death.  Aside from the obvious (and laughable) tendency of conservatives to denigrate anything our current President does, it appears they are attempting to alter reality by giving credit to a man who deserves none.  George W. Bush was NOT responsible for Osama’s death, that bumbler couldnt even read cue cards correctly.   The amount of spin and propaganda that the right-wing is promoting is actually starting to be scary, because (sadly) there is a very large swath of intellectually uncurious Americans who swallow whole whatever the talking heads on Faux News spoon feed them.  And that is sad, because we as a nation are now populated with a large block of non-thinkers, mindless sheep easily herded.  They parted company with reality so long ago, they dont recognize it any more.   So, like the good people of Emerald City, they believe in a fantasy, and care not that they are being manipulated.

Too bad Toto isnt around to move that curtain aside and expose these liars for what they are…
