“Truthers,” “Birthers,” Osama’s Death, and the Tin-Foil-Hat Brigade

Tupac Shakur and Osama bin Laden, Photoshopped by an anonymous prankster.
And so it begins.
With less than 24 hours on the clock since Osama bin Laden met his 72 virgins, the tin-foil-hat conspiracy brigade is out in full force on the Internet. I won’t provide links, as it only encourages these people, but the idiot speculation is both sad and unsurprising:
• We faked the killing.
• We buried him at sea in order to cover it up.
• The DNA is inconclusive.
• Any picture the U.S. government releases is a fake.
• Obama did it because he needed a bump in the polls.
