The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Another Lutheran Extremist!

An 18-year-old named Adel Daoud was arrested after an FBI sting in which Daoud attempted to blow up a Chicago bar with what he believed to be a car bomb. There’s a lot of interesting information in this Associated Press story — e.g., Daoud was “accessing articles written by Anwar al-Awlaki” — but there isn’t a single word about Daoud’s religion.

The Lutheran Menace strikes again!

    Us Lutherans are too smart to get caught up in some FBI sting operation. Kinda like those Southron Baptists.

  • Mortimer Snerd

    Obviously a member of the Tea Party!

  • sablegsd

    Sure it wasn’t one of those Mormon hellions?

  • Charles

    There’s that awful moment of realization when you’re getting no explosion from repeatedly pressing the triggering mechanism: What is this world coming to when you can’t even trust the guy who sold you the truck bomb over the internet not to be working for the FBI?

  • Dianna Deeley

    Why hasn’t the press figured out that if they don’t mention the religion of the prospective bomber, we all figure we know anyway?

    It’s the same as when the press fails to mention the party affiliation of the politician who has disgraced him or her self ins some way in the first paragraph. We know it must be a Democrat. So why do they bother? Just write the facts! It’s gotten beyond coy.

  • M. Thompson

    It’s almost like they’re covering something up.

  • John Rose

    Thank God. From his name, I’d assumed he was Catholic. But Lutheran, THAT makes total sense.

  • WJJ Hoge

    I don’t know. He might have been a predestined Presbyterian.

  • Nate Lenz

    I have it on good authority that he was an Episcopalian.

  • Adjoran

    Well, when you bend over for our enemies and abandon the War on Terror for a War on Women, shi’ite happens.

  • richard mcenroe

    Nah, we suckered them good at Ft. Sumter….

  • richard mcenroe

    “Hey, kid, I’m a complete stranger! Wanna blow something up for God?”
    “Sure, thanks!”

    I begin to understand 1250 years of Islam….

  • K-Bob

    Reminds me of a bit of humor in Readers Digest many years back~~~ (three tildes means harp music and wavy video effect)

    A teacher sent in an entry in the general humor section (I forget the title of that section) about grading papers. One question was, “What denomination are you?” and he had to mark down a student for poor spelling. He asked the boy about it and said, “Why did you spell ‘Baptist’ as ‘Bhaptiz’?”

    The boy answered, “Because I can’t spell Presbyterian.”

  • jwallin

    Them Minnesota Lutherans get really riled up about them Chicago bars. Yah hey dere.

  • scarymatt

    As Treacher would headline it…”Not all Lutherans attempt to detonate car bomb…

  • Bob Belvedere

    They’re not aiming at intelligent and aware people.

    Their targets are (1) the ‘low information’ [or as Zombie calls them: ‘Honey Boo Boo’] voters who will think, ‘Ah, just another Lone Whack Job™ and (2) their own kind who want to pretend the it’s just another Lone Whack Job™.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Kind of hard to when none of the Emperors has any clothes.

  • Bob Belvedere

    Could be Flemish – don’t forget The Flemish Menace!

  • Bob Belvedere

    Only God knows.

  • richard mcenroe

    If he’s too lazy/stoopid to build his own bomb, he needs to be off the streets for his own protection. It ain’t rocket science, people.

    Well, okay, it is if you’re making rockets…
