Inevitably, following the general pleasure at the news the Osama bin Laden is finally residing in Hell, it will come to light that certain members of the Left are quietly miserable over his passing. They are the ones for whom evil is not really definable, terror is in the eye of the beholder and America is always wrong. In other words, most of the hard Left and virtually the entire media elite. That’s a pretty big list, so I thought I should narrow it down to the ones who will be the most despondent over this delightful news for America.
In accordance with the new tone of civility, NRB suggests you send a personal sympathy card to each grieving individual on the list. You can click here and email this highly appropriate condolence with just the right touch of maudlin snark. (Contact information will be provided.)
10. Patty Murray
Dubbed the “dumbest woman in congress” (although I think Cynthia McKinney is suing for the rights to that title), Patty Murray once lauded bin Laden’s kindness and generosity in comparison to the callous and brutal America. No, really.
Trying to explain why Osama bin Laden might be popular in the Arab world while Americans were not, she said he was “building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. We have not done that.”
Nah, America hasn’t built any schools or roads or infrastructure, unless you count the 133 health clinics built by Americans at a cost of $345 million or the water treatment plants now serving almost 2 million people that cost the American taxpayers $1.6 billion or the new sewer system benefiting over 5 million people to the tune of $254 million. Nope, according to Murray we just bomb stuff and bin Laden is the real hero.
To send Senator Murray a condolence card, post on her Twitter page (@PattyMurray) or her Facebook page and show her you care. After all, one man’s brutal dictator is another man’s fuzzy-wuzzy love-muffin who builds schools.
