Cuomo and Wasserman-Schultz have gotten packages now, too.

“stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking toward the future,”

Noticeably absent from their tour is the southern US. Ticket prices are already outrageously high so it appears there is much demand to listen to these two ramble on about themselves for a couple of hours.


Also, no San Francisco or Bay Area, which surprised me. One of Hilary's best friends (and top donors) is Susie Tompkins Buell, the daughter of the Esprit and Gap founders.

Trump looked so disappointed that he was forced to condemn this. No doubt worried he might have to tone his fear mongering down a bit at tonight's rally.

Meghan McCain supposedly equated the bombs to Republicans being heckled at restaurants.

I tweeted her with "With bombs you die or get maimed. With heckling, you have to go to Olive Garden."

Celebrity targets seem to be spared so far, though if I were Alec Baldwin or Colin Kaepernick I'd sure as hell not be opening any mail.

The Cuomo "device" turns out to be a thumb drive of files about the Proud Boys. :lol: Ha-ha, NIETB (not important enough to bomb)

on edit: I jest, but it would have been horrific if any of these attempts had been successful.

6 packages in total so far, possibly a 7th meant for Joe Biden.

Definitely true. I can't shake the feeling that this bomber was pretty dumb, though. Like the Clintons open their own mail? Like DeNiro visits his restaurant to check his mail? All those bombs and not one detonation?

Not to belittle it, but, wow, this person's a crap terrorist.

Listening to these right-wing shills go on about bad manners is so infuriating. Like they've ever even heard of Emily Post.

The scared white guy on MSNBC just accused Eric Holder of inciting people to kick him. I thought he might actually shed a tear.

Awful thing when that happens. I had a similar experience at a Tom Jones concert.

I asked my wife if she had heard of the bombing attempts and she says, "Yeah, and you think the Democrats did this to themselves. Blah blah blah."

"Well, yeah, and watch, somehow Russia will be blamed."

But Caitlin's and Craig's words are less conspiratorial than my thoughts and worthy of yours.

Apparently some Acme comedy bombs mailed to a number of extremely rich people, which thankfully did not hurt anybody at all, are infinitely more newsworthy than the real bombs which maim and destroy children in Yemen on an industrial scale.

As of this writing nobody has been killed or injured in any way by any of these many explosive devices, and there is as of this writing no publicly available evidence that they were designed to. As of this writing there is no evidence that the devices were intended to do anything other than what they have done: stir up fear and grab headlines.

True enough (maybe - I don't specifically know what evidence there is or isn't, and I'm guessing whoever wrote this doesn't either).

But isn't that still terrorism?

God, his face as he was saying that stuff was hilarious - it was so deadpan and without emotion, what he really felt and thought was beyond doubt.
