Kay beat me to a quick post on the Virginia earthquake. I had written:
Apparently there was a moderate 5.9 earthquake that hit Virginia between Richmond and Charlottesville. I felt the shakes up in Baltimore and TPM reports folks felt something all around the region from NYC to North Carolina (and some reports from pretty far away as well).
Somehow, I’m certain that this is Obama’s fault for being on vacation. The only mystery will be which wanker will blame him first.
And with that let’s have an Open Thread.
But as I went to preview the post I saw Kay had already put one up and decided to stand down.
And then I saw this Diary by Kos and it appears that my joke about folks blaming President Obama was all too real. And which wanker was first out of the gate:
I still look forward to the Politico headline about Michelle Obama feeding her family a dead chicken and using the bones for soup.
I guess we start the news cycle with the media we have and not the media we wish we had.
