In reacting to the news of Osama bin Laden's death, Glenn Beck wondered why there was so much emphasis put on giving him a dignified burial at sea. To tackle the subject, he used humor. From Glennbeck.com:
“First of all, congratulations to President Obama. He got him. Congratulations to SEAL team,” Glenn said. “I found out this morning that it was the SEALs and I wrote to Marcus [Luttrell] right away and I said God bless you guys.
“My problem with this is that we gave this guy a dignified burial at sea, or at least that’s what they said. I really would have put this guy in a meat grinder with a pig, sorry. Oh, you’re not going to get your 72 virgins? Sorry, that sucks to be you. Wrap him up in Hormel, pack him in a can of Spam, man,” Glenn said.
“He’s a terrorist. He’s a serial killer. He’s a mass murderer,” Glenn said.
“They gave him a dignified burial and honored the body so he could go and get his 72 virgins? I’m telling you, I would have put cans of bacon bits in every orifice of his body.”
Later, Beck got more serious and thanked the people who made it happen. See his reaction below:
