Isn't It A Good Thing Boston and 9/11 Have Almost Nothing In Common?

 

Talking about the Patriots Day Boston bombings in a 500-word statement on the Senate floor April 16, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell did what he's paid to do, he played politics with a terrible event about which he has no special knowledge. 

 

He began reasonably enough:  "Today, the thoughts of every American are with the people of Boston, but especially with the many victims of yesterday's horrendous attacks, and their families." 

 

That's hyperbole, of course, and there's no way he can know if it's true, which it likely isn't, but the sentiment is within the range of accepted rhetorical decency in the wake of events about which there's little meaningful to be said, unless you have some evidence, or some role in gathering it.
