This is a subject probably more appropriate for a blogger with a better grasp of the farcical (er, Miguel?), but our reading public is clamoring for UsToo commentary on the Danish cartoons and backlash.
Burning the Danish flag? Are you kidding me?
But what's even more ridiculous is our government's stance:
The State Department spokesman, Sean McCormack, reading the government's statement on the controversy, said, "Anti-Muslim images are as unacceptable as anti-Semitic images," which are routinely published in the Arab press, "as anti-Christian images, or any other religious belief."
Still, the United States defended the right of the Danish and French newspapers to publish the cartoons. "We vigorously defend the right of individuals to express points of view," Mr. McCormack added.
What does "unacceptable" mean if we defend the right of free expression? Incoherent might be more apt.
