IED in Time Square

By now you’ve no doubt heard about the improvised explosive device that was detonated in front of the U.S. Armed Forces Recruiting Station in Time Square. The blast occurred at 3:43 AM, the one time of the night when the famed Time Square is virtually empty. Some throughout the blogosphere are claiming this was a coordinated protest over military recruitment. Still others are calling it a plot born from leftist groups like Code Pink. I’m not so sure. What seems clear though is that the bombers didn’t intend to kill anyone, according to an analysis of pictures taken at the scene.

Oh, and here’s a surprise – the moonbats think the whole thing was a right wing plot.

Air Force: "All Blogs are Bad!"

That’s not their official position, but for mostly logical reasons, the Air Force has decided to block blogs its troops can read. Blogs that actually have the word “blog” in the web address are a primary target. This move has drawn the ire of many officials who think the whole policy is “utterly stupid”.

William F. Buckley Jr. Dead at 82

The master of conservative orthodoxy passed away overnight in Stamford, Connecticut. There are many obits around the web today (and tributes too – Rush Limbaugh opened his show and has been talking about Bill for nearly 15 minutes now).

The man was respected by many. He singlehandedly imprinted conservative thought onto the brains of millions (mine included).

Favorite Buckley quote? “I asked myself the other day, `Who else, on so many issues, has been so right so much of the time?’ I couldn’t think of anyone.”

RIP.

Hey, Who Turned Out the Lights?

I wonder if a janitor accidently spilled coffee on a control board at a nuclear plant in Florida today?

After knocking almost 3 million people off the grid, officials found an equipment failure and fire at a substation in Miami. That, in turn, shut down the nuclear plant. While a lot of the power has been restored, at this hour, 20,000 are still dark.

Today's Read

Jim Geraghty.

Every aspiring Democratic president deemed “the next JFK” has revealed feet of clay — be it from scandal, domestic- or foreign-policy failures, a sense of opportunities squandered or great promise unfulfilled. In every instance, there was always a man behind the curtain whom it became impossible to ignore.

Could Barack Obama go on to be a successful president? It’s possible, and if he attains the office, Americans of all political stripes will wish him well in his duties to protect the country. But history, and human nature, tell us that no president could live up to the inhuman expectations being created at this moment.

Tied at 40%

Now this is interesting.

The first Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Connecticut’s Democratic Presidential Primary shows the race couldn’t possibly get any closer. New York Senator Hillary Clinton attracts 40% of the vote and so does Illinois Senator Barack Obama.

Wasn’t the Northeast suppose to be made impenetrable by anyone challenging Hillary Clinton?

What Did I Miss?

Got stuck at work, then traveled home at 5 mph in ice and snow. As such, I missed the State of the Union address. I’ll have to watch it later. Until then, this is a great place to go to find a wide range of reaction.
