Zazi becomes Michael Bloomberg's best friend (when it comes to seeking more federal dollars)

Even before he has his first New York City court appearance, terror suspect Najibbullah Zazi, who was shipped out of Colorado on Friday (leaving us with his father, Mohammad, as our most prominent remaining Zazi), is paying dividends to NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg -- a man who knows a little something about that kind of thing. This morning, Bloomberg asked the Obama administration for additional funds to fight terror, citing Zazi as example one for why more bucks are needed. Betcha Bloomberg gets them, too, and without Zazi accomplishing anything more than buying a shitload of acetone at local beauty-supply shops. That's one way of making sure the terrorists don't win.
