This mail bombing incident is ... a bit strange...

By now you've heard of the mail bombing incidents that have plagued some senior Democrat officials.

I can't help but find it a bit strange.

Like clockwork this hits and the news hits it with full force.  24/7 coverage of it.

The stuff that was galvanizing Republicans is off the front page.  News of the immigrant caravan is gone.  Talk of how the Republicans have closed the gap is gone. 

It couldn't have come at a better time.

Which leads me to a serious question.  The assumption is that this is some right wing lunatic.  I want to pose a different possibility.  The left has it's weirdos too.  What if this is an operative that wanted to change the news cycle and break the momentum?

Is it an outlandish thought?

In 2018 I don't think so.  I've seen stranger things and this political season has both sides acting like this is more of a knife fight than a normal political season.

Just spitballing.  I know its EXTREMELY counter to conventional wisdom but I think it has to be considered.
