Undoubtedly the top story today is last night's Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia which claimed the lives of seven people and hospitalized over 200 people.
The train was going over 100 MPH. Whether this was the result of human or mechanical error has yet to be determined and will be up to the NTSB to conclude.
But this hasn't stopped the Left from putting this tragedy on a political track. Over at NRO, Jonah Goldberg took the gang at MSNBC's Morning Joe to task for buying into former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell's argument that the accident was a consequence of a lack of government spending on infrastructure. Goldberg writes, "Disgusting. They just learned there was a sixth fatality from the crash and they used that to promote hackish arguments about the need for high-speed rail (Rendell went on about how in Europe the rails are straight for high speed not like our shabby curved rails here)."
