Will the Right become Osama Death Deniers?

Cross-posted on dailykos

Will right-wing (Tea Party base) propaganda seek to deny the death of Bin Laden to further vilify President Obama?

Despite DNA evidence proving Bin Laden was killed in a firefight in Pakistan as attested to by disinterested third parties, I fear that President Obama’s victory as Commander in Chief helping orchestrate the demise of the man who murdered so many on September 11, 2001 will be nullified by those who take any opportunity to grasp for power.

As a prime example of a hired gun, read Ann Coulter’s desecration of the anguish of the 9/11 widows from a few years back:

9/11 "Jersey Girls"

In Godless, Coulter criticized the four 9/11 widows known as the "Jersey Girls", writing:

These broads are millionaires, lionized on TV and in articles about them, reveling in their status as celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. These self-obsessed women seemed genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attacks happened only to them. ... I've never seen people enjoying their husbands' deaths so much ... the Democrat ratpack gals endorsed John Kerry for president ... cutting campaign commercials... how do we know their husbands weren't planning to divorce these harpies? Now that their shelf life is dwindling, they'd better hurry up and appear in Playboy.

It’s the cold beautiful logic of mathematics. How can the right accept that the man they hate and fear so much, the one they mock as a monkey with cries of “Lynch ‘Em” be able to deliver (as George W. Bush said) Osama not merely “Dead or Alive” but his head on a platter.
