Remember Ward Churchill? The marginalized and discredited college professor, who when asked what it would take to motivate people to stand up in protest of the Iraq war, replied:
I don’t have a ready answer for that. One of the things I’ve suggested is that it may be that more 9/11s are necessary.
The FOX News analog for marginalized and discredited college professor Ward Churchill, is former CIA Bin Laden Chief Michael Scheuer, who when asked what it will take to motivate people to stand up in protest of illegal immigration, replied:
The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States.

Sotomayor had claimed her palate would color her view of legal facts
but he said that President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee clearly touts
her subjective approach to the law.
Huh? Is he really insinuating that Puerto Rican food is going to have undue influence over her judicial decisions? Damn, with two pasta-eaters on the court, there is no telling how many devious bowls of fettuccine have swayed the decisions of Alito and Scalia.
In her April 1 column, Ann Coulter fell for a fake April Fools’ Day article by Car and Driver magazine
that claimed that President Obama has ordered General Motors and
Chrysler to cease their participation in NASCAR because it is an
“unnecessary expenditure.” Coulter wrote, “If Obama can tell GM and
Chrysler that their participation in NASCAR is an ‘unnecessary
expenditure,’ isn’t having public schools force students to follow
Muslim rituals, recite Islamic prayers and plan ‘jihads’ also an
Not quite sure where she’s headed with that, but you can head over to Human Events and read … oh wait, you can’t. I was wrong - the column has not been rewritten.
