Weekly Check Of The Osama Clock

Hey, if it's Monday it's time to take our weekly look at the Osama clock.

It has now been over seven years since our country was attacked on September 11, 2001 and exactly 2,555 days since George W. Bush (The Resolute One) said that he would get Osama bin Laden dead or alive.

And last week we had White House Press Secretary Dana Perino implying that it would take Superman's powers to have captured bin Laden by now, saying "… this is not the movies, we don't have superpowers. But what we do have is very dedicated people who are working with our allies to try to bring him to justice."

Hmmm. Maybe just a small fraction of the brave troops being wasted in the war-for-nothing in Iraq could have caught up with bin Laden by now -- just a thought.

Bush clearly has not given a damn about catching the person actually responsible for the attacks on our country and we suspect that a President McCain would similarly find bin Laden much more useful at large (and scaring the American people) than captured.

But we'll continue to ask Senator McCain: Other than saying you'll follow bin Laden "to the gates of hell" do you actually care about catching this guy before he dies of old age?
