I now know that some Nigerian guy trying and failing to set off a bomb in his pants is the equivalent of Hurricane Katrina and 9/11. It might be worse.
I hate to keep saying the same thing over and over, but it’s hard to see how a medio-politico system as out of whack as this one won’t end in disaster.
I’m not going to link, but this bit of lunacy from Post Partisan is telling:
By staying in Hawaii, the president has sent the message that the situation really isn’t all that serious, that things can proceed just fine until he’s back. And isn’t it that kind of reasoning that emboldens our never-vacationing enemies into thinking Christmas Day is the perfect time for them to strike?
Where do you even start? By mentioning that teh terrorists aren’t likely to be deterred by a presidential press conference? I don’t know anymore.
Let’s be frank: at this point, there is no real difference between Michelle Malkin and the Washington Post editorial page, none between Marc Ambinder and Matt Drudge, none between the Republican Congressional delegation and RedState.
We have Jim DeMint holding up the confirmation of the head of the TSA while simultaneously acting as the point man for Republican criticism of the TSA…and he’s getting a lot of traction in the very liberal media.
Maybe there is no value in saying this over and over again, but our public dialog really, really sucks.
