Taranto On Bloomberg On Terror

By James Taranto:

New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent elected on the Republican line, actually engaged in some Obamaesque speculation about the attempted bombing, NewsBusters.org reports. Asked by CBS's Katie Couric if the attack was "a home-grown," the mayor replied: "Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything."

Hey, you never know! It could be that Shahzad and his suspected co-conspirators were enraged over ObamaCare. And if President Obama has lost the Pakistani Taliban, he's lost Middle America.

Well, That's a Relief

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.
