Quote of the Day

Lady Liberty

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.

"I don't give a damn what you think. If it can happen to Janet Jackson, it can happen to anybody."

Okay, it's in poor taste to poke fun at terrorist bombings, but ... Well, personally, I don't give a flying leap that it's in poor taste. This is funny. I forget who said there's a fine line between comedy and tragedy (I think it was Charles Manson), but the latest nominee for the Darwin Award has got to be 35-year-old Sajida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi, the Iraqi broad who claims she tried to blow herself up at the Jordan-Raddisson wedding reception last week, but suffered a wardrobe malfunction when the TNT strapped to her Islamic ass "failed to detonate". Her hubby's, however, worked perfectly, and he's now with Mohammed.

May he rest in pieces.

Now, if this were Mr. and Mrs. Mayflower of Levittown, USA who went out on a weekday jaunt planning to off themselves in a joint suicide pact and Mr. Mayflower went through with it, but Mrs. Mayflower walked away, rest assured the authorities would be looking into whether or not Mrs. Mayflower had recently taken out a fat new insurance policy on Mr. Mayflower. They would at least react a little skeptically to Mrs. Mayflower's claim that when she put the .357 Magnum into her mouth and pulled the trigger, it failed to fire.

Al-Rishawi said she and her husband, Ali Hussein Ali al-Shamari (I dunno, maybe it was a common law marriage) strapped on their bomb belts and crashed the Raddisson wedding reception. According to the bereaved widow, "My husband wore a belt and put one on me. He taught me how to use it, how to pull the (primer cord) and operate it ... My husband detonated (his bomb). I tried to explode (my belt) but it wouldn't. I left, people fled running and I left running with them."

(We can imagine the ushers greeting guests at the Mosque entrance at future Islamic weddings: "Allah be praised, groom's family or bride's family? Explosive-laden or non-explosive-laden?")

Anyway, these are Muslim headcases, so the politically correct, terrorist-loving liberal American press covering the story is naturally disinclined to examine whether Mrs. Raghead Terrorist is either ...

1) The Islamic version of Paris Hilton and too stupid to pull a cord correctly, which explains why her husband was so eager to martyr himself for the cause, because maybe those 57 (give or take) virgins in Paradise are a little smarter;

2) Not so dumb after all and saw a perfect opportunity to "divorce" Mr. Raghead Terrorist; or

3) Simply chickened out.

Whichever choice is correct, husband and wife suicidal terrorist tag teams provide yet another reason (as if we needed another one) why the majority of the "Arab Street" are awe-struck by indoor plumbing and stuff, and why it took western Christian know-how to extract the oil that now pays for their Emirs' and Princes' and Grand Wazoos' Mercedes' and BMWs, etc.

Of course, the American press will not examine the idiocy of 1/5th of the world's population reflected in Mr. and Mrs. Ali-Doofus. And, yes, I include the Jordanians in that sweeping generalization about the Religion of Peace. Their "outrage" over last week's attacks doesn't extend beyond their own borders. It's just peachy when Americans, Brits and Spaniards are incinerated, but ruin one of their weddings and that's where they draw the line.

No, the American press will ignore all of this beyond examining just what terrible things the United States did that turned Muslims into morons. We will, however, see and hear numerous condescending stories in the liberal press about red state "fundamentalist" Christian families and their quaint beliefs.

I find that even funnier than Al-Rishawi.
