Stuff like this is just plain funny:
I’ll sleep better tonight, because Napalitano reminded viewers that “thousands of people are working 24/7, 364 days a year to keep the American people safe.”
Hey maybe it’s a red herring, maybe its a trap because on that 365th day we have hundreds of thousands of people working!, meanwhile we are joking about it:
Napolitano didn’t specify which day was the Homeland Security “off day,” which of course helps to keep our terrorist enemies off guard. After all, if they don’t know the magic day when all are defenses are down, how can they plan an attack? Is it New Year’s Eve? (Perhaps too obvious) Flag Day? Is it that National Cupcake Day? Can we agree to make it a day when I’m out of town?
Hotair is more nuanced:
A nuanced treat from the same tough-minded security mind who looked upon the near-destruction of Flight 253 and declared, “The system worked.” In fact, now that I think of it, didn’t the Flight 253 plot go down last year on Christmas Day? Well, then, there’s your answer to why DHS missed so many red flags at the time: They had Christmas off.
Yeah yeah I know she misspoke we all do, but consider if this was said by Sarah Palin it wouldn’t it be the top story everywhere?
BTW a shout out to Morning Joe for leading with this in the 1st hour. (BTW Mika wasn’t there with that first hour, and now she is there and they didn’t lead with it at 8 a.m. coincidence?)
