Quote of the Day
"The story of how one lone idiot, pimping an 18th-century brand of community terrorism, held the media hostage and forced some of this nation's most powerful people to their knees to fitfully beg an end to his wackdoodlery is an extraordinary one."
-- Jason Linkins of the Huffington Post, in a generally spot-on takedown of the media for the embarrassing elevation of the bullshit Koran burning story to the most important single news event in the world
Both Linkins and John Avlon over at the Daily Beast rightly compare the entire fiasco to a hostage crisis, an act of terrorism -- and the last time I checked, we didn't negotiate with terrorists.
