Reflections on the Underpants Bomber
Sooner or later, it had to happen. A terrorist attack would take place on President Obama's watch, and the wingnuts would bleat about his response to the End of the World as We Know It. As it happens, the attack consisted of a kid trying -- unsuccessfully -- to set his underpants on fire. Confronted with the reality of terrorism, the president -- appropriately -- responded cooly and logically.
Unfortunately, the Right seems to believe that his response to terrorism should be, well, terror. Rather than keeping his head, apparently the American people would be better served by Obama the Angry Father.
Abe and Joe take a look at the Right's unresolved Daddy issues, and also take a look at the judicial challenge to California's Proposition 8 as the march toward full equality makes its inevitable way toward the U.S. Supreme Court.
