"Moderate" British Imam: Let's Keep An Open Mind; How Do We Know Four Dead Muslim Suspects Were Bombers Rather Than Victims? | Main | Air America Update: Theft From Children Going Swimmingly; Ratings, Not So Much

Quote of the Day

From The New Criterion's blog. A British simp criticizes Blair for not seeking to "understand" the reasons for terror, but rather "merely" condemning it. David Clark continues:

No one doubts that the bombers are in the grip of an evil ideology. The question, unanswered in the acres of newsprint devoted to rubbishing the suggestion that terrorism is a political phenomenon, is why this ideology has grown in its appeal to young Muslims. To put it in the simplistic Manichean terms favoured by some, why is there more evil around than there used to be? On this there is nothing but silence.

The New Criterion answers:

Why is there more evil around, Mr. Clark? Maybe because evil has finally figured out that it doesn't need to hide in the shadows--it can walk around in broad daylight and still we'll find a way not to see it.

Remember when "defining deviancy down" only meant calling out-of-wedlock births fine and dandy?

Ah, the good old days.
