So, ten years and several billion dollars later, we finally took the fucker down?

Let me just point out that in the coming week, right-wing pundits will try to claim that Obama should not receive any credit for this. Of course, in the meantime, all the evidence shows that Bush had the chance to get him and let him go. (After all, the unkillable boogeyman is a better way to get unlimited funds than a guy you pick up in the first few months of a manhunt.)

Update: from Pam at Pam's House Blend:

I'm content for the right-wing and the left-wing to argue over who gets credit because I don't care anymore--about either of them. Next election, I say screw pragmatism; I'm voting for whoever I like most (or hate least) whether he has a chance or not.

In the end, you have to vote your heart, 'brush. You have to do what you think is right.

I mean, many years back, I voted for a guy named John Anderson. He seemed to speak for what I wanted. Now, the weird part is, he was already an underdog at the time. That didn't bother me.

If I remember right, he got 6.6% of the vote. Which was well above what anybody thought he'd get. If I remember right, he didn't carry a single state, or even a single county, anywhere.

The loud flush!!! as I cast my vote should probably have been a clue. But I voted my heart. And that's what counts.

Don’t forget the things you once you owned. Treasure the things youcan’t get. Don't give up the things that belong to you and keep thoselost things in memory
