For real though, remember how sadaam hussein was captured close to election season? and what happened? Saddam's capture was used as a means towards (to some extent) helping Bush get re-elected. This might be a crazy conspiracy theory but I bet Bin Laden was probably dead a while ago and now is the ideal time according to some statistical data or something to drop that knowledge such that Obama can get re-elected. Lets be honest, we need Obama to be re-elected and not some neo-Donald Trump/George W Bush type.
Also, this is really SAD news for me, because I had an AWESOME stand-up comedy joke that I can't use any more because they found Bin Laden. Damn it. Check out the joke here: (the joke comes in at 2 minutes and 55 seconds)
