The womans eyes stared vacantly into the sky.
The runners had been bounding in, beaming with relief. On both sides of Boylston Street, hundreds of spectators still had packed the area, many cheering with hoarse voices for the late finishers surging in, scores of them every minute. An elderly volunteer greeting runners kept repeating this mantra: Youre all winners.
When the first boom shattered the bliss and the haze of white smoke washed over the finish line, I could see in the eyes of the woman what had happened. She wasnt breathing. She wasnt moving. Her eyes appeared lifeless as she lay beside the metal barriers on the sidewalk, where dozens of people were sprawled on the concrete, their limbs mangled, blood and broken glass everywhere.

My fellow communists, liberals, progressives, socialists, fascists, anarchists, union thugs, and Chicagoland gang members, it is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I speak to you today from the Great White Hut. Sadness, not because of the loss of life and injuries suffered by Bostonians, but sadness because I had just jerked a 10 foot putt for a 12 on the 7th at Congressional when I was informed of the tragedy.
Upon hearing the catastrophic news from the only Secret Service agent who wasnt hitting on the drink-cart girl, I broke down in tears and wept in the strong warm arms of my main body man Reggie Love. We stayed like that for more than an hour until I composed myself.
I immediately contacted Eric Holder, the Attorney General Racist, and was told that the initial information from Boston indicated the attack was the work of the ultra-rightwing ARA - the Amish Republican Army - a heavily armed and extremely violent domestic terrorist group centered in Blue Balls, Pennsylvania.
I immediately instructed the Attorney Racist to lay siege to their compound. Heavily armed with AR-15s the Amish terrorists violently attacked our valiant forces led by Homeland Security Dyke-in-Chief Janet Big Sis Napolitano. Big Sis reports that the ARA compound was counter-attacked by artillery, 40 millions rounds of armor piercing high caliber ammunition and nuclear weapons. The ARA was completely destroyed.
Now that the guilty parties have been dealt with and crushed, I am free to return to Congressional and finish my round. In my absence I have ceded command of the armed forces to my Vice-President, Crazy Joe Biden. All Americans, except for bible-thumping, gun-toting Christian clingers should sleep easily tonight knowing that MY country is secure and in good hands."

I’m surprised that with this being the Boston Marathon and all that we haven’t had any big names pop up among the injured and dead. No Hollywood or Political A-listers mentioned at all. Maybe their security detail kept them away.
And the major push from the gubbermint is to take away our means of protecting ourselves. Absolutely disgraceful!!!
I saw a video of a camera man from the Boston Globe taking a picture over the barrier, then, holding the camera in one hand, helping to move the blood splattered barrier with the other hand.
Liz Norden, a mother of five, had just finished hauling groceries into her Wakefield home Monday afternoon when her cellphone rang.
Ma, Im hurt real bad, said her 31-year-old son
It was her second boy, who had gone with his older brother to watch a friend run in the Boston Marathon.
.. Within the next two hours, amid frantic phone calls and a panicked drive into Boston, Norden pieced together the horrific truth that will forever change her two sons lives and her own. Each of the brothers lost a leg, from the knee down. One was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess, while the other was at Brigham and Womens Hospital ..

Despite his questionable political activities, that's why he's popular around here.
