How They're Trying To Spin Amtrak Crash

Christine Flowers on the Amtrak train derailment:
The spin on this tragedy was more subtle than the one in Baltimore, but it was clearly there. The fingers, instead of being pointed directly in the face of police officers and "white society," were delicately gesturing in the direction of conservatives who would supposedly sacrifice the safety of these poor passengers to their unwillingness to cooperate with the president.
It's depressing to see how quickly the thought monitors jump into action at the first sign of an opportunity. You would think that these political opportunists would wait until the smell of blood had dissipated before coming out with their suggestions that it was all the fault of the GOP.
