Hope. What the hell did she ever do there? Trump just had her on and kept her on to ogle her. Star and NeNe have to stay for the drama


Obama could have waited until after that was over. Priorities people!
I know, the radio guys spoiled it for me.

The princess married her prince and the bad guy is dead. A real Disney few days.


How did we all find out? I got a text message. Otherwise it would have been facebook, or this forum, depending which one I logged into first.

I was watching Celebrity Apprentice on delay and my friend, who was watching it live, told me about the scroll. I knew it was something serious if Obama was cutting into Celebrity Apprentice making a speech at that hour.
And then I just sat pretty with my netbook in hand tweeting jokes for the next hour until he came on. It was pretty awesome that my twitter feed stopped moving the entire time Obama was talking. And then after that, the Osama jokes started to get obnoxious.

And speaking of obnoxious, I stayed watching CNN for a little while longer and they were attempting to interview the college kids at Ground Zero causing a ruckus. Not a single one could put together a coherent thought, calling it an out-of-body experience.
"I was in 4th grade when 9/11 happened..." yeah, well, then you don't remember jackshit. Sit down.

I understand how you feel. As much as I take joy that Bin Laden will never perpetrate another evil act upon this planet, I don't take joy in his death. His death needed to be accomplished, but I am sad that someone became the evil man that he was that murdered so many people.

That said, I do not find it reprehensible if people do cheer for his death. Cheering the death of someone who murdered thousands of innocents is a far different situation than people cheering the murder of those innocents.

but there is a moment when it becomes cheering for the sake of cheering. or faux patriotism. and nothing is more obnoxious than that. there's a big difference between this:

I guess they all needed an excuse to drink and get in front of cameras on a Sunday night. That was not very meaningful.

TMZ has a bogus death photo

"The White House has NOT released an official death photo of the corpse ... yet.

An official has told CNN ... REAL photographs of Osama's body exist ... which show a gunshot wound to the side of his head. The official says due to the wounds, bin Laden's face is "unrecognizable."

Fourth graders are usually nine or ten years old. Kids that age would easily remember the events of that day. Mine do. My daughter was only seven at the time and she remembers everything that happened that day, down to some of the smallest details. She's seventeen now. She was the first person I texted with the news.

I'm not offended by the celebrating, I just find it really tacky. What does his death really mean in the grand scheme of things? Probably nothing. If anything, it will probably cause more harm than good. I'm not saying it wasn't necessary, just that nothing is over

He allegedly stood behind a woman and used her as a human shield from the Navy Seals, don't know if it was a mistress or a wife or whatever. Quite ironic.

He'll be like Tupac-he probably recorded reams of material to be released after his death. Years and years worth.

from Official: Bin Laden buried at sea - Yahoo! News

"After bin Laden was killed in a raid by U.S. forces in Pakistan, senior administration officials said the body would be handled according to Islamic practice and tradition. That practice calls for the body to be buried within 24 hours, the official said. Finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world's most wanted terrorist would have been difficult, the official said. So the U.S. decided to bury him at sea."
