There’s been a lot of legitimate hesitation from people all over the political spectrum about the reaction to Osama’s death. Is it okay to celebrate the death of Osama Bin Laden? After some serious consideration, I have come to this conclusion.
I don’t sit here celebrating his death because I’m excited about him dying. I celebrate his death because I’m excited about other people living.
I don’t celebrate his death as revenge for September 11th, 2001. I celebrate his death because he won’t be around to plan September 11th, 2011.
I celebrate his death because I know that all around the world, terrorists go to bed every night wondering if they’ll wake up to the sound of a couple of helicopters landing in their front yard.
For that, I thank our military—and I celebrate proudly. Time to crack open another Bud Light.
