Bloomberg: Hey, maybe the Times Square bomber was upset about the health-care bill

Could be. Since we’re pulling theories out of our ass, let me try a few. Maaaaybe … it’s a liberal amnesty shill upset at Nazi America’s tolerance of Arizona’s immigration law? Maaaaybe … it’s a gay-rights supporter irate at the slow pace of progress on “don’t ask, don’t tell”? Maaaaybe … it’s a nutritional fanatic angry that the City hasn’t completely banned salt yet? (Actually, that would make Nanny Bloomberg a prime suspect.) Maaaaybe … it’s the president’s old pal Bill Ayers reliving his glory days? Anything’s possible, so why not have the mayor of the country’s largest city speculate idly on the national news about it?

“There is no credible evidence so far that this attack was more than at least one person, the driver,” said Mayor Mike Bloomberg. “After that there is no evidence that anyone else was involved. It may be, but we can’t say that it is.”…

“If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that,” Bloomberg said. “Homegrown maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.”

He knows full well which way the investigation is pointing but he’s too gutless to mention it as a possibility. The latest: The joint terrorism task force has taken over the case and the “person of interest,” who’s been missing since Saturday night, is apparently a “naturalized American citizen who hails from Pakistan and just returned after spending five months there.” And that’s not all:

Authorities said another clue in the investigation is a video posted online early Sunday morning by persons in Connecticut, who may have been involved in the bomb attempt and are being sought by law enforcement. The video, posted on a site registered one day before the attack, has the Taliban in Pakistan claiming responsibility for the attempted bombing.

So that Taliban video taking credit for the attack was actually posted by people in the same U.S. state as the prime suspect. Fancy that. Meanwhile, according to Fox, the NYPD’s “focusing” on the similarities between this plot and 2007 jihadist car bomb plot in London, which I mentioned right here on Saturday night. And just as I’m writing this, CBS is reporting that the prime suspect’s name is “familiar to counter terrorism investigators.” But enough of all that; let’s get back to that intriguing ObamaCare theory.
