Barack Obama promised to get to the bottom of the latest terrorist incident – or his middle name isn’t Hussein. Secretary of State John Kerry called the bombing in his hometown “simply unacceptable.” (Hey, it worked with North Korea’s nuclear program, didn’t it?). Senator Dianne Feinstein says she’s preparing a bill to ban large-capacity pressure cookers. (Really, do civilians need them?) Hillary blamed an Internet video mocking Muhammad for the carnage. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano deplored the “man-caused disaster” and DHS has begun rounding up the usual Christian suspects.
In a dark mood, I thought of these possible headlines on Monday while contemplating the“horrific act of violence” (in media-speak) about 20 miles from my home.
