Why the Hypothetical When You Have the Factual?

Bill Maher, in unhinged fashion, thinks Sarah Palin would react to another 9/11 on the basis of whether it took place in red or blue America:

Honestly, if Sarah Palin were president and terrorists struck New York again she would say two things. First, is Mount Rushmore okay? And two, well at least they didn’t hit the “real America.” Democrats don’t do this. Jerry Brown doesn’t stand under the Hollywood sign and say “Now, I don’t know if this will play in Texas or down on the farms where they have no values and f*** chickens. But you here in Hollywood are the real Americans.” It never happens.

But it does happen, especially in the case of Michael Moore, honored guest at the 2004 Democratic National Convention and a heartthrob of the Left during the last decade. It was not Sarah Palin who thought that 9/11 terrorists hit the right spot, but Michael Moore who wrote that it was the wrong spot:

Many families have been devastated tonight. This is just not right. They did not deserve to die. . . . If someone did this to get back at Bush, then they did so by killing thousands of people who DID NOT VOTE for him. Boston, New York, D.C., and the planes’ destination of California — these were the places that voted AGAINST Bush.
