Not all of the words coming from politicians about Osama bin Laden's slaying are solemn.

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (R) on Tuesday jested about bin Laden's time in the afterlife, where according to Muslim belief some men receive 72 virgins. 

He made the joke on Twitter:

How much would I give to be one of the 72 Virginans [sic] Osama is 'hanging out' with since Sunday?

Cuccinelli's joke seemed to riff off of a Robin Williams bit from his 2002 HBO special "Live on Broadway."

Williams describes a situation where bin Laden arrives in heaven and is unkindly greeted by George Washington and "70 other members of the Continental Congress."

"And he's going, 'What is this, where are the virgins?' Seventy-one Virginians, you a--hole!"
