I love this. I dunno if I'd vote for Bloomberg, but I like his directness.
One among many reasons why NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg has no future in the national Republican party.
On Monday Bloomberg weighed in on the JFK bomb plot -- the one where a few Trinidadian ne'er-do-wells who didn't understand how the jet fuel pipelines worked thought they'd blow up the whole city."There are lots of threats to you in the world. There's the threat of a heart attack for genetic reasons. You can't sit there and worry about everything. Get a life. You have a much greater danger of being hit by lightning than being struck by a terrorist."
From Talking Points Memo. See also Political Animal's summary of bloggers' snarkiness about the GOP debaters:
Michael Crowley on Mitt Romney: The man is a human PowerPoint presentation — it's almost scary.
Ana Marie Cox: Duncan Hunter would use nukes... but carefully.
Ezra Klein: Does anybody really believe religion is a "very important" part of Giuliani's life? He seems like the type who would make holy water sizzle.Andrew Sullivan on Mitt Romney: It's rare to see a fraud exposed quite as clearly in real time as the Republichameleon. So he's for making English the national language, but runs campaign ads in Spanish: an almost perfect representation of the plastic one's bullshit.
