Dew Drops

Map of Osama bin Laden's compound via Google has reported that Google maps has been updated to show Osama bin Laden’s Compound in Abbottābad, Pakistan.

The New York Daily News reported that Osama bin Laden and Adolf Hitler were both declared dead on May 1st.

The Daily Beast reported Osama bin Laden’s death marked the 8th anniversary of Bush’s famous “Mission Accomplished” aircraft carrier speech.

The Daily Mail reports that Obama’s announcement knocked Celebrity Apprentice off the air.

The AJC reported a tweeter from @binladen that tweeted at 1am, “I’m not dead, just a little busy at the moment.”

The disposal of Osama bin Laden was, in a couple of important ways, a Southern thing.  The troops who killed him were members of Navy SEAL Team Six, based at Dam Neck, Va. Bin Laden was buried at sea from aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, named for the late Georgia congressman who chaired the House Armed Services Committee.

Fox 5 in Washington, DC reported that “President Obama, speaking from the East Room of the White House, telling the nation and the world that President Obama is in fact dead.” While Fox News’ web site ran the headline, “”Usama Bin Landen Dead Fox News Confrims.” reported, “Fox News actually gave the president credit. I know, scary stuff. The anti-Obama network used words like “historic” and a “very great success,” which has my head spinning.  You know, maybe the Fox spinmeisters didn’t show up to work on Sunday — maybe they’ll arrive at work on Monday morning and say, “Wait a second, we gave Obama an ounce of credit?! Who authorized that?”

Lee Leslie

I’m just a plateaued-out plain person with too much time on his hands fighting the never ending lingual battle with windmills for truth, justice and the American way or something like that. Here are some reader comments on my writing: “Enough with the cynicism. One doesn’t have to be Pollyanna to reject the sky is falling fatalism of Lee Leslie’s posts.” “You moron.” “Again, another example of your simple-minded, scare-mongering, label-baiting method of argumentation that supports the angry left’s position.” “Ah, Lee, you traffic in the most predictable, hackneyed leftist rhetoric that brought us to the current state of political leadership.” “You negative SOB! You destroyed all my hope, aspiration, desperation, even.” “Don’t you LIBERALS realize what this COMMIE is talking about is SOCIALISM?!?!?!” “Thank you for wonderful nasty artful toxic antidote to this stupidity in the name of individual rights.” “I trust you meant “bastard” in the truest father-less sense of the word.” “That’s the first time I ran out of breath just from reading!” “You helped me hold my head a little higher today.” “Makes me cry every time I read it.” “Thanks for the article. I needed something to make me laugh this mourning.” “If it weren’t so sad I would laugh.” "... the man who for fun and personal growth (not to mention rage assuagion) can skin a whale of bullshit and rack all the meat (and rot) in the larder replete with charts and graphs and a kindness..."“Amen, brother.”
