america the stupid....'Deathers' take over where 'birthers' left off
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- With "birthers" mostly silent, "deathers" are now pushing a new conspiracy theory.

The release of President Obama's birth certificate last week apparently tamped down -- to a large degree -- skeptics who questioned whether he could legally serve as president because they said he wasn't a natural-born citizen. Now, a surprisingly diverse crop of people are questioning whether Osama bin Laden is actually dead.
Some media outlets and bloggers are calling them "deathers."

Their claims follow a wide range: Some believe that the world's most-wanted terrorist was not the man killed Sunday, others think bin Laden is dead but was killed many years ago, and still others believe that the September 11 mastermind is alive -- and secretly being interrogated.

One Fox Business News host is not going quite that far. Judge Andrew Napolitano at one point declared that "Osama bin Laden is dead," but he later seemed unconvinced. Napolitano also questioned the president's authority to kill him.

hogging credit.

6. Oh, stop...the "critical thinkers" are just "asking questions!"
What do you have against "questions?" Do you simply accept whatever "official story" (tm) you're "fed" by the "corporatists?"

:sarcasm:

:rofl:

14. Yes, it is horrible to question things. We should just accept doctrine as is.

13. Runaway trains are hard to stop
Until at some point they self-destruct, which is what the GOP seems intent on these days.

12. "Deathers" Have Always Been Around
JFK didn't die but was reduced to idiocy and secreted on a remote island;

Elvis didn't die and is periodically "sighted;"


Michael Jackson has been spotted;

Glenn MIller never really died, etc., etc,

So what's new with america the stupid?

16. If Osama isn't dead, the first thing he's going to do
is send out a video proving his current not-deadness (say, by holding up a copy of the day's NY Times) and going all, "Nyahh, nyahh, I'm not dead!" Did they ever think of this?
