Bomber Self-Identified as a Conservative

It's just news and I need a post -- I'm not baiting anyone. The media is going to read a lot into this while ignoring the fact that the country's death rows are stocked with Democrats.

This isn't a motive, but expect some breathless reporting from Jake Clapper.

Though he identified as conservative, he also had civil libertarian leanings regarding sex-offender registries:

On the blog, Conditt described himself as a conservative. He wrote that he was against gay marriage and abortion and in favor of the death penalty.

He also wrote that he supported doing away with the sex offender registration system.

"So you have a guy who committed a crime. Will putting him on a (sex offender) list make it better? wouldn’t this only make people shun him, keep him from getting a job, and making friends? Just for a crime that he may have committed over 15 years ago as a adolescent? On a side note, one fifth of all rapes are committed by a juvenile," Conditt wrote.

Here are pictures of the dead bomber at the FedEx store, wearing gloves on a hot day (!) and an absurd daffodil-yellow clown wig to hide his brown hair.

Say, didn't someone say the shots would show him in light disguise with a hat?

Shortly before his death, he was looking up new addresses, presumably to send bombs to, a search of his computer showed.

Oh, by the way, here was the profile the cops built up of the bomber. It's not much, but it's something:

While the suspect who took his own life has been only identified thus far as a 24-year-old white man, the former ATF agent in charge had already predicted that the suspect was:

-- 20 to 30 years old
-- Educated
-- Mostly likely a local resident

I don't know about "educated." He went to community college but did not graduate. So he was high school educated with some credits in community college. I don't know if that makes him "educated;" seems "average education" would be more accurate.

They probably got that from the idea that he thinks he's smarter than people. Which is something you might guess about the perp in this kind of crime, that he's playing games with the police and all.

But that doesn't prove education; it proves arrogance, and maybe even more insecurity underlying that arrogance.

I'd say that a more defensible profile would say that he thought of himself as educated, despite not having more than average education, a trait he shares with most liberals.

The "local resident" call was obvious.

The call that he was 20-30 -- not in his 20s or 30s, but 20 to 30 --is pretty darned good. I wonder why they'd guess him at that young age.

One possibility is that the batteries he used in his bombs were "exotic." Maybe they're batteries people use in some kind of tech associated with younger people. Maybe they batteries are only advertised in, say, video gamer magazines, which would mostly skew younger.
