Wake Up, Sleeper Cells

I was going to say this is incredible, but actually it’s just Fox News being Fox News.

In a discussion about the TV network Al Jazeera, which is going to begin broadcasting in eight U. S. cities, a contributor on Megyn Kelly’s show, Lisa Daftari, said it was especially scary that Al Jazeera is going to Detroit, which has “an ex-pat community of Muslim-Americans where sleeper cells have been detected.”  So Al Jazeera is going to broadcast messages to the sleeper cells!

First, if anyone’s planning to destroy Detroit, I think we already beat them to it.

Second, how can you be a Muslim-American “ex-pat” in Detroit?  You can be an ex-pat in London or Paris, but an American can’t be an ex-pat in America.  Oh, wait, I forgot, Muslim-Americans aren’t really Americans…

Just Take Your Millions and Shut Up

Al Gore lamely tried to justify selling Current to Al Jazeera on Jon Stewart last night, claiming that they provide “the highest quality, most extensive, best climate coverage of any network.”

Yes, we all think of Al Jazeera as our go-to source for climate change.  And to think how distraught and inconsolable I was when Bush v. Gore was announced.
