I know there have been lots of diaries about the Repubs freakout over a rather modest "yay, us !" Obama ad but seriously, I can't get over the fact that our side, FOR ONCE, has them on the run, on national security no less !!

I 'm not going to lie, there is a little bit of uneasiness on my end about going around doing a victory dance that we killed a man, no matter how horrible they are.

But, honestly, it all goes away when I see the right wing just lose their freaking minds over it. haha.

As the brillant Michael Tomasky writes  ( worth a read btw) ,

Republicans will try to intimidate the president into not mentioning how he got bin Laden—because they know it hurts them and makes them look like the incompetents they are.
True. Honestly, why isn't the conversation EVER about how 9/11 happened on their watch?? These days, it takes one wrong tweet, or one awkward sentence for anyone in government to get fired but on the worst attack on our soil since Pearl Harbor , not only did it not result in asking who dropped the ball, but led to two wars that were so stupid and so damaging to our economy, our deficit, our people and our psyche that I am amazed the people that presided over all of that mess still have a microphone to spew their dangerous rhetoric on the airwaves.

But, it looks like, oh finally, they may have met their match.

The smirk on President Obama's face yesterday was  ooohmmm priiicellesssss....I did the unthinkable last night, just because I was feeling brave and smug, I watched Hannity... almost worth it. You could see the steam over his ears. He did mention "the smirk". Oh, they were mad. It was like chocolate cake on a lazy sunday...

Anywho, I hope the administration doesn't back down. To be on the attack for once, to actually show them that they are wrong, wrong, wrong on pretty much everything is even somewhat unsettling. We may get used to this ! ;)

But more than anything, the one thing that feels so good, the basis of pretty much most meta around here is:

".. the real story here—it’s the fact that the Democrats don’t appear to be afraid of the Republicans anymore. That, to Republicans, is what’s truly unacceptable."
About effing time, man... about effin' time.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
