The Terrorists Have Won

On the Fox News program, "Your World With Neil Cavuto", they ran a picture of a sparsely populated Athens Arena with the headline, "Do These Empty Seats Make the Terrorists Happy?" They kept it up there for about two full minutes as Neil--incidentally, the official Guinness titleholder for "the least attractive man ever to appear regularly on television"--interviewed Howard Safir about terrorism, security, and safity at the Olympics.

As you may have guessed, the question was purely rhetorical. Of course it makes the terrorists happy!

Other things that delight terrorists:

* Rain on your wedding day
* Flies in your Chardonnay
* A free ride when you've already paid
* A traffic jam when you're already late
* That good advice which you just didn't take

As a news provider, Fox continues to valiantly serve the American public by characterizing terrorists not as wouldbe political agents and murderers with actual political grievances it might serve us to at least attempt to understand, but as all-purpose Olympic-hating, good-times spoiling, no-funners.

I smell a Peabody.

Ew, as if Neil Cavuto knows absolutely anything about "my world." What a gross picture. Bobo, you forgot the thing that makes terrorists most happy: Ruining Halloween for mall-goers.
