Dead Guy Unites Phillies, Mets

It’s been a rough week for Osama Bin Laden. First, he was killed. Then the Times refused to call him “Mr.” (The Gray Lady withholds the honorific from only the world’s most wretched scoundrels.) Then he crossed over to the dimensionless horrors that awaited him. And now Bin Laden’s (no “Mr.” for you, you dead, rotting jerkwad!) pleasing demise has united those previously immune to unity: the Mets and the Phillies. Witness spontaneous chants of nation-state:

“I don’t like to give Philly fans too much credit,” David Wright said of the binding powers of Bin Laden and his sucking chest wounds, “but they got this one right.”

First two sentences = greatness ; the loss of Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden ( أسامة بن محمد بن عوض بن لادن) a strange thing.

Don’t forget, Dayn, it’s been a pretty rough week for Fox News and the rest of the nutters as well. First the birth certificate, now this? It’s like finding out on all the same day that Santa, the Tooth Fairy, AND the Easter Bunny don’t exist. That’s rough.
