Quote of the Day


"Just out of curiosity — exactly how much of a wuss does your God have to be, do you think, if he can’t take being picked on by a Swedish cartoonist? I almost can’t wait to see which fringe/attention-hungry satirist decides to make himself a Canal Plus documentary subject by publishing the next image of The Prophet. Can we all take bets on this? I’m lobbying hard for the next Rob Schneider movie — maybe a supernatural-themed sequel, like Deuce Bigalow 3: Gigolo of the Eternal Afterlife or something – to include a bi-curious Mohammed scene."

-- Matt Taibbi on last week's attack on a Swedish cartoonist who dared to draw an image of the Prophet Mohammed depicted as a dog

Am I the only one who thinks Swedish cartoonist sounds like an oxymoron?

Not to take away from the majesty of Taibbi's prose, but Mohammad is not the god of Islam, only Allah's prophet. I dunno, maybe the cartoonists would be safer if they started drawing Allah?

Slam dunk, Taibbi!
