Osama Who?

Omfg. As I did my best to ignore any and everything Saddam-captured-related that I could, the headline 'Saddam Captured' Figurines On Sale for Holidays caught my eye. How could it not? Move over 'Tickle Me Elmo'...there's a new toy in town.

"It didn't take long..." noted the article. No fucking shit - all of two days for some jackass to jump on the opportunist-bandwagon of mechandising that will become "the capture of Saddam Hussein". No doubt, by the end of the week, half of the nation will be wearing "Captured Saddam" t-shirts...wagging their fists at TV cameras to show us naysayers. "We told you," they'll chant - "America is good...evil has been brought to justice...Bush rules."

Flipping through channels last night, it truly amazed me that, even though I didn't linger more than two seconds on any given channel I still heard the same tripe over and over.... "This must be a big slap-in-the-face to all those that opposed the war."

Wtf? If one sane, non-military, Bush-supporting individual could please explain to me how the capturing of Saddam Hussein is supposed to suddenly make me support a war I was against from the start, I'm all ears. You...caught...Saddam... ...and?

I honestly wasn't going to bring this up again on my blog. Why beat a dead horse, right? But when all I hear on TV and online are asshats claiming this capture is the "WE WERE RIGHT!!" vindication for millions of idiots, I'm a little (justifiably) irrate. I'm still waiting to hear from someone, anyone that can, intelligently, explain to me just how this capture should change my mind. I'm quite eager to see a poll on how many people once-against-the-war have suddenly switched sides simply because a dirty, hairy Saddam was found in a hole.

Osama bin Laden - remember him - anyone listening??

Though, naturally, the only real news source I put any stock in, The Daily Show put it best:

"Americans can rest easy now knowing that the man that had nothing to do with September 11 has been captured."

Touche.
