The Denver Post‘s newest partisan political hack columnist Laura Chapin repugnantly writes about 9/11 today, seeking to use a national tragedy for partisan political gain. While most of the story recounts her experience on that frightful day, by the end readers realize her entire recollection is a vain glorious ruse to heap praise on Obama.

The story would be compelling, if it weren’t a transparent set-up for a partisan political punchline.

From Chapin’s sycophantic screed:

In the years since, I have no desire to ever relive 9/11. I don’t want to see the movies or go to the concerts or watch the documentaries. Last year, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I went to a Rockies game because I was determined to stay away from the television.

But something else happened last year: President Obama, our commander in chief, the one who said he would do what was necessary to kill Osama bin Laden even if it meant going it alone, kept his word and took out the monster who did that to us.

Thank you, Mr. President. And rot in hell, Osama bin Laden.

Ms. Chapin, you disgust us.

Thank you, President Obama? How about thanking the Navy SEALs who actually risked their lives?  How about thanking the black site interrogators who, using harsh interogation techniques, wedged the information out of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, which in turn set in motion the chain of events that led to bin Laden’s death?

No, Ms. Chapin would rather politic on the dime of national tragedy than thank the real heroes. She’d rather thank the politician sitting safely in DC than the brave soldiers who ventured into the dark of night not knowing what they might encounter in that compound in Abbottabad.

No, Ms. Chapin, the anniversary of 9/11 should not be used to pimp your candidate. It should be used to remember those that we lost and honor the heroes that have fought to ensure we lose not one soul more.

Ms. Chapin, you disgust us.
