    So what say you WK? Election game changer or nay? I’m thinking, yep.

  2. Swervin' Merv says:

    Any truth to the rumour that Donald Trump wants to see the birth certificate before accepting that the dead body is that of Osama bin Laden?

  3. Trent says:

    Hey, in all fairness, even Ted Kennedy got Obama and Osama mixed up. Geraldo did it tonight, also. Regardless, glad they got him. Osama, I mean.

      It’s nice to be generous, but ALL typos on the air are horrible. Misspeaking is one thing, but to type out a President’s name in place of a mass murderer is a fire-able offence. You get to read that before it goes on the air.

      The correction to “Usama” is just as bad.

  4. Patrick Hamilton says:

    Freudian slip?

    • Joseph Krengel says:

      Pretty sure that the typical Fox News copywriter is white, and is opposed to interracial relationships.

  5. Craig Chamberlain says:

    This will likely help Harper.

  6. From Fox News: “The worst thing about bin Laden was that he was a socialist.’

    From Stephen Harper: “The worst thing about bin Laden was that a vote for bin Laden would have been a vote for the bin Laden-Bloc Quebecois coalition.”

    Note: quotes may not be authoritative.

    Well it should help Osama get re-elected…oops Obama..What the hell, time to chant USA,USA!USA!!!

  8. John says:

    So who gets the $25 million ??

    • Craig Chamberlain says:

      The milkman? Not likely.

    • Michael says:

      Probably some guy in Pakistan who tipped off the CIA that Bin Laden was there. The poor schmucks in Navy Seals who risked their lives get a shiny medal.

    • The other George says:

      The goat that knocked over OBL’s kidney dialysis machine.

      (he was suffering from renal failure ten years ago)

    LOL. Oh come on, this is giving material to the lefties. Deep down inside, you love Fox News.

  10. nastyboy says:

    Does this mean I can stop taking my shoes off to get through US airport security now?

    Not sure why you blame http://www.foxnews.com/ for a clear typo made by http://www.fox40.com/

    Scot @7:06 a.m.

    Typical right wing modus operandi my ass. MSNBC made the same mistake.

    Although it is a very significant blow to terriorism, Bin Laden’s design was to clone terrorists in global clusters. Al Qaeda ( “the base”) was only the centre of a nucleus. The clones are designed to be self sustaining and disconnected in every way other than ideology.

    True to fanaticism others will take over and plan retaliation, but they might not have the tenacity of purpose without their base leader.

    Pakistan has some “splaning to do Lucy!”

    Anyway glad he is gone and pissed off they polluted the sea with his body. But what else would you do with it-nobody wants it.

    Just saying…………..

    The moral of the story? When you’re in hiding, don’t piss off the help.

    Apparently it was bin Laden’s courier that gave up his location. I heard the family jipped him of money owed for his services, so he though to himself ‘I know how to fix Osama’s little red wagon’. Next thing you know Navy Seals were dropping in the compound.

    As for the TV screw-up – as Chris mentioned this was a FOX affiliate that screwed up, not the main network itself. But curious now if FOXNews commentators will stop calling Prez Obama a Muslim terrorist sympathizer now that, you know, he actually took out the top Muslim terrorist in the world?

  15. Don says:

    Its not Fox News, its a local Fox affiliate

  16. The Doctor says:

    Christopher Hitchens article on this today was bang-on. The shameless double-dealing and complicity of the Pakistani government, militiary and intelligence services has never been more apparent.
