MSNBC Anchor Wonders Why Obama's Election Didn't End Terrorism

Not just drinking the Kool-Ade, but eating the concentrated powder, too.

ALEX WITT: You know, John, and itís interesting because there are many who had such an optimstic and hopeful opinion of things, and you certainly canít expect things to change [snaps fingers] on a dime overnight, but there are many who suggested that with the outgoing Bush administration and the incoming Obama administration there would be something of a lull in terrorism attacks. There had been such a global outpouring of affection, respect, hope, with the new administration coming in, that precisely these kinds of attacks, it was thought ó at least hoped ó would be dampered down. But in this case it looks like Barack Obama is getting a preview of things to come.

JOHN YANG: Heís ó itís a rude awakening, a very, sort of, sober reminder of what heís going to be facing in just a few weeks. And there is some concern also, there had been some concern, that during this period, during this, the transition period, between Election Day and Inauguration Day, that the enemies of the United States, those who donít care for the United States no matter whoís leading it, would try and test the United States, would try to take advantage of this period, and I think that may be one thing that weíre seeing right now.

They're trying to take advantage of the American presidential transition by attacking the Indian city of Mumbai? Really? They imagined the American transition would discombobulate the Indian security forces? How? Are Indian police currently disorganized as they await fresh orders from Washington?


In addition to being six shades of stupid, let me also note the, um, arrogant Americentrism on display by these idiots. Pakistan and India have fought three wars since Pakistan came into being; Pakistani terrorists frequently kill Indians in large scale terrorist attacks.

And guess what? This has nothing to do with American policy. It is not a protest against Guantanamo or Iraq. It has to do with -- if I may be allowed to speculate -- tensions between Pakistan and India. And of course Islamic terrorists' general desire to murder anyone nearby.

Of course these drooling imbeciles aren't really Americentric. Rather, they are Bushocentric. They are so deranged they reduce every act of terrorism to a commentary on the Bush Administration -- because those are the only terms they are capable of thinking in, they assume everyone else shares their single-minded lack of perspective and imagination.


Correction: MSNBC Anchor, not CNN.

As another reader said, tomato, tah-mah-toh.
