Thank you, Mr. Mayor

Does anyone doubt that the arrest in the attempted Times Square bombing is something of a bitter disappointment to many…I mean insofar as it wasn’t of some white dude:


Bloomberg later told CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric that the suspect behind the bombing attempt could be a domestic terrorist angry at the government who acted alone.


"If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything," he said.”

After the perfunctory yadda-yadda about innocent-until-proven-guilty, I note the arrested was a US citizen, albeit Pakistani-born and was headed to Dubai. At the risk of stereotyping, I’m going to speculate that it wasn’t the individual mandate that was fueling any anger on his part.

Side Note: Ms. Couric got some other great insights from the Mayor:

“There is no evidence here of a conspiracy, there is no evidence that it's tied into anything else. It looks like an amateurish job done by at least one person," he told Couric.”

…thus, I guess, ruling out the less-than-one-person job.
