“Killing Osama bin Laden day” skit scrapped at SNL

Because you gotta keep laughing….

Here is a story from of all places, USA Today, about The Daily Caller‘s “find”—a discarded skit depicting Obama announcing the establishment of “Killing Osama bin Laden day.”  It is hilarious.   By the way, I wondered how the Obama campaign could be so dense as to promote the anniversary as enthusiastically as they did because it surely inflamed many throughout the Middle East.

From USA Today:

Saturday Night Live apparently developed a skit mocking President Obama for excessive celebration of Osama bin Laden’s death, but it did not air.

According to a script obtained by the conservative website The Daily Caller, Obama — as portrayed by actor Fred Armisen — delivers a speech wishing all Americans a happy “Killing Osama bin Laden Day.”

“I hope you had a safe and joyous first anniversary of his killing, and that you were able to spend it with those you love,” said the faux Obama, according to the script. “This is a special time of year, when we gather together with family and friends, to commemorate the shooting of this terrorist, and the gutsy decision that made it possible.”

Here is just one bit that apparently was included in the script—suggestions on how you might commemorate the day:

But you can also add your own ideas. For example, I’ve already promised Michelle and the girls, for the 10th anniversary, I’m taking them to Orlando.

One more thing: I want to remind us all that, when sending a Killing of Osama bin Laden anniversary card, or offering best wishes on Killing Osama bin Laden Day to a friend who happens to be Muslim, we should be considerate of Islamic cultural tradition. To many Muslims, phrases like Osama bin Laden “went dirt-napping,” or “assumed room temperature,” or “sleeps with the fishes,” can be offensive. Especially the last one, since, as we all know, he was buried at sea.

And of course, let’s all remember that heavy drinking, and Killing Osama bin Laden Day, are never a good combination. So please celebrate Killing Osama bin Laden Day responsibly. After all, it’s the”gutsy” decision.”

Read it all, and laugh!

  1. Somehow, I don’t think they would have spiked the skit if it were a Republican crowing over killing bin Laden…
