The Odds

You know, I don’t want to jump to conclusions here, because that would make me too much like Matt “Right-wing But Rarely Right” Drudge. But if the car bomber was a white guy in his 40s who didn’t know the difference between ammonium nitrate and plain old fertilizer, I’m thinking it’s gotta be a Beck Patriot who was trying to water the tree of liberty … with the blood of random Times Square tourists.

I mean, it’s just their kind of logic:

Law enforcement officials offered a more detailed description of the makeup of the failed car bomb found in Times Square on Saturday night, and said they were reviewing surveillance footage that showed a white man who appeared to be in his 40s walking away from the area as he looked over his shoulder and removed a layer of clothing.

Raymond W. Kelly, the police commissioner, said the materials found in the Nissan Pathfinder — gasoline, propane, firecrackers and simple alarm clocks — also included eight bags of a granular substance, later determined to be nonexplosive grade of fertilizer, inside a 55-inch-tall metal gun locker.

The bomb, Mr. Kelly said, “would have caused casualties, a significant fireball.” He added, “I don’t think we can label it at this time crude or not.”

Let’s see: wrong kind of fertilizer. Shut-off propane tanks. Someone who’s not all that bright, or good with details? Maybe I’m wrong.

Maybe it’s just a Limbaugh listener.

Nachum at Free Republic thinks otherwise:

To me, it sounds like a liberal charade to take the heat off Barack and put it on the tea partiers.

Brilliant thinks someone’s being framed:

They are going to hang this failed bomb on some fat, white guy who was allegedly seen at a Tea Party rally. The construction of the device was so botched it seems almost like a set up and some sad nutter was talked into driving it to Times Square. I know, you think I wear a tin foil hat to bed, but I really don’t trust our present government.

Yes, the rest of the freepers are insisting the perpetrator must be a white man who’s a convert to Islam.

I swear to God, I do not Make. This. Stuff. Up. I don’t have to.

UPDATE: I have to admit, I had second thoughts when I saw that the alleged suspect didn’t have a beer belly. Now officials are saying the plot appears to have international ties.

  1. i’m guessing it’s a fundy non-drinking for jesus wingnut. and the freepers will now start complaining about government surveillance. and of course it doesn’t matter if someone is caught on camera because they don’t believe their own lyin’ eyes!

  2. Everywhere I go, there are liberals following me, and I think they are paranoid.

    The contempt that foreign terrorists show the US is sickening. Between the shoe bomber, the underpants bomber, and now this… Utterly Ignorant bomber, it’s as if they are saying that we don’t rate high up on their list of priorities. Either that, or they are making a friendly gesture in the only language they know.

  3. Even scarier than the Beck patriots are the progressives who play down attacks on the U.S. as a “law enforcement matter” or use these attacks as a political issue. That means our country is vulnerable because the threats against it are not taken seriously.

    It’s time to ignore the example of the Progressive-in-Chief, Barack “Naive” Obama, and admit that there are people and countries out there who are out to hurt the good ‘ole US of A by any means possible. The “Beck patriot” and ‘Limbaugh listener” crap just shows how detached from reality progressives are. La-La land is not a safe place.
