Osama Bin Laden is dead

…and man, the internet is making a party of it. Media shitshow party points:
* Bunch of the news sites (and forums, etc.) crashing.
* Hilarious notes that this is eight years to the day after Bush’s “Mission Accomplished” speech.
* He was killed by assassins in Packistan, completely ancillary to our $400Bn war in Afghanistan.

Sadly, this isn’t going to amount to much. The Patriot Act will still be in place. The TSA will be fucking shit up. The various wars in the middle east will continue. Ideologically similar/sympathetic assholes may even get riled up for a while. At least something was accomplished, small though it may be. Maybe we can pull one of these and wrap it up quickly afterwards?
