Do you remember the Oklahoma City bombings?


Do you remember the poor little baby, probably from the YMCA Day care nearby, that the fireman was desperately trying to carry to safety?
I do.
I think, though, the current GOP mayor of Oklahoma City doesn't. If I was that baby's mother, and IF I survived that horrendous bombing, I think I would be calling for this mayor's head.

So Many Republican Hypocrites, So Little Time
Every once in a while, we like to honor minor stage players in the tragic farce of the Grand Hypocrisy Party. That is why this week we are honoring former GOP Oklahoma City Mayor Kirk Humphreys.
You see Humphreys helped get one Charles Alfred Dreyling Jr. out on bail after he was caught
trying to board an airplane with a bomb.
So, for Republicans, if you’re non-white and named Mohammed and you try to board an airplane with a bomb, you get rendered to Egypt or Syria where you summarily get tortured, right? But, apparently, if you come from red state Republican land, you are, according to Humphreys, absolved of any wrongdoing.
''He had a little explosive device," Humphreys said of Dreyling, "and boys like to see things go bang.... I have every confidence that they'll find out Charlie Dreyling is a fine young man and no terrorist."
Really?
According to the bomb-maker's affidavit, "Dreyling said he learned as a teenager how to build homemade explosives from Web sites like 'The Anarchist's Cook Book.' Dreyling said he has built and detonated several explosive devices for recreational purposes.”
