It Burns! It Burns!

The hysteria over the Koran burning is really extreme. I can’t remember when liberals were so freaked out about something. When you touch a nerve like this, you’re on the right track.

Terry Jones may be up in the air- I suspect he wanted to back down- but somebody somewhere in the US is going to burn a Koran Saturday, probably several different people, and there will be extensive freakouts in the Muslim world.

The freakouts in the US are more interesting though. Liberals can’t bear being defied, and any defiance weakens them at least temporarily. How will they react to this one?

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.
