Quote of the Day – Dumb politician edition

Why is it some politicians seem driven to speculate out loud about things of which they’re obviously ignorant?

NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg:

“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.”

As it turns out, his guess wasn’t worth two cents.  And it doesn’t appear to be “anything” – it appears to be the same old thing.
