Enhanced For Your Protection?

Continuing to take the 'Ministry of Truth' to new lows, FOX News anchor Brit Hume tells Bill O'Reilly that he doesn't think his remark advising Tiger Woods to seek Christianity was proselytizing.

After stating that Woods' character was, 'not what we thought it was,' Hume again observed, "(Tiger) needs something that Christianity especially provides and gives and offers, and that is redemption and forgiveness. I was really meaning to say in those comments yesterday more about Christianity than anything else...I think that Jesus Christ offers Tiger Woods something that Tiger Woods badly needs."

Let's get this straight. Faith has no business at the news desk. Objective fact does not change with the faith of the news reader.

Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina), the same obstructionist doofus who is sitting on the confirmation of a TSA chief while whining about how unionizing TSA screeners would jeopardize our security, believes that not interrogating Umad Farouk Abdulmutallab cost us critical intelligence.

Torture is against the law, Senator. It's a war crime. That pretty much gives you zero credibility on issues of security.

(We're interpreting deMint's words as meaning waterboarding because he's also using the GOP talking point of Abdulmutallab 'lawyering up' - therefore, what is needed are actions outside the purview of law.)

Speaking of doofuses, who at the TSA decided to use the term 'enhanced screening' to describe their new security measures in the wake of Mr. Pantsbomber's Christmas Holiday?

Is 'enhanced screening' anything like 'enhanced interrogation'?
