Who Killed Cock Robin?

The Swiftboat SEALs for Truth or whatever, got me thinking. Those egotists have it wrong: 'tweren't the SEALs, it was the people who made their weapons that did in old bin Laden. The SEALs just pulled the trigger. (All this will ignore that the SEALs apparently were so scared of bogeyman Osama that one of them wet his pants and pulled the trigger just by coming face-to-face with the unarmed old fart, thereby losing the chance to interrogate one excellent source of intel for the actual War on Terra itself.)

So shortly after we cede credit to the assault weapon maker - assembler Madge, a temp making $13.50 in Mississippi, we will realize that actually Madge had nothing to do with it either: it was the one who made the bullets who is actually responsible. After some effort we will discover it was Madge's cousin Billy, in a small Pensacola company, who runs the automated bullet-making machine - a robot, actually; Billy just sort of watches it work - but which will lead us all to realize that it was really the robot that killed bin Laden.

Or to be more exact, the owners of the Singapore-based robot-making factory - Bain Capital Management.

Your quote above, Tacitus, is too good to delete without re-posting it here in this.

"I for one am not about to look an armed SEAL in the eye, point to his weapon and say 'You didn't build that'."

But let's finish the experiment.

Analytical observation: the first comment I deleted, keeping in mind that I am both the author of it, and I am the "blog administrator," is reported as being by the "author," of the quote, so Blogger defaults to this in this case.

The second deletion speaks for itself.

(We are experimenting on the different notifications given by Blogger when comments are deleted by the user vs. the admin.)

Second analytical observation: At first , the above deleted comments had identifiers attached: it read (ex.) "Jumper said: this comment deleted by the author" but after several re-loadings of the page, it simply says "Comment deleted - This comment has been removed by the author." without identifying the author, as the initial msg. did.
