Mayor Bloomberg: the M1 Tank Fires Nuclear Bombs

This is the kind of thing that pisses me off: Michael Bloomberg displays his complete ignorance about something on national television and no one calls him out. Hey Mikey! Hey Anderson! U.S. tanks fire depleted uranium rounds because they’re more dense, not because they “have a nuclear bomb in it” (as the Mayor of New York City claimed). If the head of the NRA said something demonstrably false the white-haired wonder would be all over him like stink on a skunk. Is it too much to ask that our elected officials actually look things up and make sure they are making factual statements before opening their yaps? Is it too much to expect the media to know a little something about the subject being discussed during an interview? Don’t even get me started about Bloomberg’s gaffes re: semi-automatic rifles . . .
