The American front on the "War on Terror" has taken some interesting turns this week, especially if you're the trainwreck that is Debbie Schlussel, who you may remember sees Muslim terrorists around every corner.

Knowing that to most of us, a grasp on reality is important, she invokes Godwin's law over being called out over her incredibly ignorant and blind bigotry. Yet, as petrified as Debbie is over a couple of teenagers with cherry bombs, she remains blithely indifferent to the advocation of domestic terrorism by the leader of the Southern Baptist Convention or worse, an actual BOMB left at a women's clinic in Austin. Obviously, for Debbie, the amount of melanin she suspects is in your skin dictates whether it's considered terrorist activities.

Sadly, Cliff Schecter suspects that Michael Chertoff may actually be getting his Homeland Security ideas from the same shallow pool as Schlussel. Yes, it's that disturbing...

Can you help us out?
