A comedian dressed as Osama Bin Ladin was spotted downtown trying to do a lame bit, but it made us realize something: fake Osamas are funny.

We don't know why fake Osamas are funny. The real one is an evildoer and all. And he probably had something to do with 9/11, but given the lack of attention that our government is paying to him, we're starting to doubt it.

Seriously, if bro really orchestrated those attacks that dramatically took down those two huge buildings, and slammed a plane into the freakin Pentagon - then why aren't we all up in his ass right now?

Us spending all these years in Iraq as an answer to 9/11 is like OJ spending all that time on the golf course looking for the real killers.

Exactly how many years of trying do we allow this administration to take until we call bullshit on what they're doing? Fuck Iraq, most Americans want Osama Bin Laden's fucking head. So bring it to us damnit!

In fact the way BushCo is avoiding going into Pakistan, where public enemy #1 is probably at, is a curious move. Almost borderline aiding and abetting. Aren't we in war? Don't people know why we're in Iraq and Afghanistan? Doesn't that give us permission to go to where this mother fucker is and take him out?

When the fear of retribution from Pakistan is worse than the fear of retribution from the American people, then the American people need to blame themselves for losing their pimp hand.

Don't we have a war president? Don't we have the brightest minds on this? Aren't the Republicans supposed to be good at death and destruction or is that only in terms of the environment and economic surpluses? The GOP had the executive branch, both houses for years, the Courts, everything. And they have zero to show for it. Infact they owe us a couple of world trade centers, tens of thousands or innocent lives, and a few trillion dollars.

Osama is funny because he's a big goofy dude who can avoid the bumbling dumbass with the shotgun. Unfortunately, it seems like he's having the last laugh.
