Dennis Miller Explains It All

Dennis Miller, a comedian by trade, is more importantly a surveyor of the human political condition, and his unique ability at comparisons is perhaps his forte.  Take, for example, this introductory pericope:
There are two types of people in the world – those who are most afraid of terror, and those who are most afraid of global warming.  Now, you can put me in the terror camp.  I can't worry about the earth right now; I'm too worried about the world.  And the thing that worries me the most in the world is Radical Islam, obviously, and increasingly, might I add, Moderate Islam, because I'm starting to wonder when you guys are going to declare a fatwa on the assholes within your own organization. 

Miller broke into the big time in the mid-80s with a turn on Saturday Night Live,  where he had to establish his liberal bona fides.  Shaken from his torpor by the 9/11 attacks, he describes himself as a libertarian, open in some of his social views but a steady conservative politically.

Entertain and inform yourself for an enjoyable ten minutes.

Comments are welcome and discussion is open and encouraged. I expect that there will be some occasional disagreement (heaven knows why) or welcome clarification and embellishment, and such are freely solicited.

Consider that all such comments are in the public domain and are expected to be polite, even while contentious. I will delete comments which are ad hominem, as well as those needlessly profane beyond the realm of sputtering incredulity in reaction to some inanity, unless attributed to a quote.

Links to other sources are fine so long as they further the argument or expand on the discussion. All such comments and links are the responsibility of the commenter, and the mere presence herein does not necessarily constitute my agreement.

I will also delete all comments that link to a commercial site.
