Midterms are Coming

On Monday I twittered:

Why haven't we heard yet from Dick Cheney re: NW 253 bombing? Really feel like we could use his perspective.

Ha ha. Just kidding, of course. But I guess Cheney took me seriously. Here he is yesterday:

As I've watched the events of the last few days it is clear once again that President Obama is trying to pretend we are not at war. He seems to think if he has a low key response to an attempt to blow up an airliner and kill hundreds of people, we won't be at war.

What a loathsome human being. As for the more general calculated Republican freakout over this, credit where it's due to Politico for pointing it out. The GOP is really mining new lows these days.

More here. Or a million other places as well. It's nothing new that Republicans are doing everything they can to exploit terrorism for political advantage, but they sure are stepping up the crassness level these days.
