bin Laden bin Deaden

Yippie-kai-ay, MF! Finally, a President with more cattle than hat.

Chuck Todd said on NBC tonight that this would likely go down as the most important achievement of Obama's (first) term. Sorry, no. It will likely go down as the most popular achievement of his (first) term. For importance, HCR beats this by a mile. Stimulus and financial reform may beat it too, and I've got a soft spot for no-more-torture. Given ObL's greatly reduced status as operational leader, this is somewhere between nice symbolism and "thank God, this wasn't Jimmy Carter's Iranian rescue mission." But I can't deny the satisfaction of imagining what FOX, Rush, and the Donald are going through tonight--a sleepless night at the Pee Pants Corral.
