Keith Olbermann said that the death of Osama Bin Laden will forcefully alter the political landscape in America.

In a "Special Comment" posted on his website Monday night, Olbermann said that the "least important but most fascinating" aspect of Bin Laden's killing is that, in his words, Republicans will no longer be able to tell voters, "vote Democratic and you die." He also said that Bin Laden's death was a rebuke to the notion that torture was needed to fight terrorism,

"None of that bestiality captured anybody, least of all Bin Laden," he said. "...There is right now, only one oversimplification that matters anymore: Barack Obama got Osama Bin Laden. And every other political calculation, every strategy that suggests Democratic weakness or liberal uncertainty is...as dead as Bin Laden."
