Cadaverism

Last night, it took the internet about 40 seconds to begin (jokingly) demanding to see OBL's "long form death certificate."

Of course, this only took about 12 hours to stop being a joke. Well, technically a joke.

SAWB's favorite unhinged leftist, Cindy Sheehan, chimes in to demand people "put away their flags and think."

She'll be teaming up with that paragon of right-wing credibility, Andrew Breitbart. But I'm sure all the national news organizations won't question it when he releases exclusive video of OBL in a pimp costume hiding out at ACORN world headquarters.

(HT: Andrew Sullivan)

At the same time, we're going to be a while sorting out the facts from all the goofy shit that got blurted out in the first 24 hours after the story broke.

So it's kind of hard to come down on anyone for asking questions right now.

Healthy skepticism is healthy.

That being said, you look at Sheehan's quote or Breitbart's history and you can see that political motivations are a higher priority for them than facts.
