It is important for your soul that you remember an evil done for the greater good is still an evil.

Amen, brother. Amen.

One other thing: doesn't Malkin realize that, by advocating racial profiling, she's basically putting her ass on the line there? Unless you think the INS can differentiate by sight between a Bikolano, an Ilocano, a Zamboangan, and a pop-tart, which I rather doubt.*

* Ok, they could probably ID the pop-tart. "One of these things is not like the others.."

You're on the right track, Anarch. Combine the indigenous terrorist groups in the Philippines (Abu Sayyaf) with the original Manchurian Candidate thesis (most vociferous opponent of an ideology can often be the perfect masquerade for an undercover proponent of the ideology), and things are not looking up for Ms. Malkin.

"Honey! Sweetie! Can't we just settle for a nice round number?"

"OK, if that will make you feel better."

"There are.. precisely.. FIFTY-SEVEN KNOWN ISLAMOFASCISTS in the Kerry-Edwards campaign!"

Let's not forget "Pawtuxet".

Ugh. I feel unclean after having read through Malkin's response to Muller.

I have much to say about this, but I'm working on tomorrow's hangover and I am currently inarticulate.

But here's a muddled summary of the highlights: Liberal, big time, but not politically correct; former Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines; scared of flying but pissed off if anyone gets between me and landing safely; happy to fight;
I find Malkin to be a 15-year-old, teenaged, emotional demagogue; she reminds me, dangerously, of pro-Marcos hacks in the Filipino press in the 1970s; I was mugged once and pickpocketed in the Philippines and resist the temptation, you know, being liberal, of profiling her racially (against Thomas Sowell's advice) but if she were seated near me and got up often to take a leak on my flight, I'd be checking it out and not likely to consult with the stewardess before I took personal action (this just sounds awful, doesn't it?), but I have so little confidence in the "idea" of flying and consider it a manifestation of collective faith that, you know, a vaccuum is created above the wings, giving the plane lift or thrust and here we go magically to another location, well go ahead and believe it if you must, but I'm ordering another drink and if somebody gets up while I'm nodding off to break into the cockpit and break the spell for whatever reason then they will need to deal with wolverine me as I kick their butts in close quarters.

Like I said: inarticulate.

But Malkin and her ilk sicken me. Malkin has ilk, you know, just like she accuses we liberals, and everybody else who's different from her, (what is she?) of having.

Watch out for ilk! Profile them.

If I were an Islamic terrorist, and I were inclined to want to spite the likes of Malkin, I'd be every place I can recruiting a thousand John Walker Lindhs. Just because.

Yeah, we don't have to worry about Tim McVeigh, Terry Nichols, Richard Reid, John Walker Lindh, Jose Padilla, William J. Krar, or Orcinus' whole zoo of crazies.

A couple of years ago here in the DC area, the cops spent a lot of time looking for a white truck, while a certain burgandy Caprice just drove through the roadblocks ...
