Discussing Osama bin Laden’s Death with “Party In The USA”

Osama is dead. Probably. If you believe that sort of thing.

I had trouble watching cable news for the coverage. Matt and company thought watching Ninja Warrior was more important and it was a hard argument to convince them otherwise (you watch that and tell me that isn’t America winning).

So I turned to Miley, hoping that some of her sweet music would soothe my blood lust. There I found the most heated debate since Matt and I couldn’t agree on the difference between “nerd” and geek”. Here are some of the highlights from the comment war on Miley Cyrus’ “Party In The USA”

Things run the entire spectrum of emotions. If you don’t listen to the song while you read these, you’re not doing it right.

This is America right here.

  1. Does being insufficiently cheerful at the death of one evil man make me a terrorist by default? I’d be feeling a little bit happier now if this was the point where Obama pulled our troops out of the middle east, shut down Guantanamo Bay and stopped making people take off their shoes and throw away their water bottles at the airport. But various government spokespeople took to the airwaves this morning to talk about how it’s actually going to get worse. The security theater is only going to increase and our war on a common noun will never end.

    George Carlin had it right. “We like war!” Our economy’s subject to the whims of a few petulant rich bastards, our health care system is still a clusterfuck, we can’t build much useful for export, but we can still bomb and shoot people all across the globe. America! Fuck yeah!
