Bin Laden Dead: Obama Graffitos Speech with Closing Cliché

As the news has likely reached even those living under rocks, you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone in any cave who hasn't yet learned of the demise of ex-spelunker-douchebag-extraordinaire Osama Bin Laden.

On the heels of the news came the president's obligatory announcement, recap of 911 (for those of you who forgot what the "never forget" bumper stickers were about), and restrained, but detectably smug demeanor.

All of which were just fine. The problem is that a speech revolving around the enemy our nation killed (for non-religious reasons) should not loop back to a conclusion that assumes our favor among god(s).

Ironic, hypocritical, shameless pandering, or totally meaningless. Either way, I think he blew an otherwise great speech there.

To be constructive, here are some preferred, more appropriate cliché closers:
"What a relief!"
"We can all sleep a little easier now."
"The world became a safer place today."
"Goodnight, and good luck."
"And that's the end of that chapter."
