Today in blunt frankness...

The Terrordrome? Take Serpentor Ave,
then turn left on Destro Street, can't miss it.
So emotions run high after a terrorist attack. That's why terrorists do what they do and we can't control that. What we can control is shoving a mic in the face of lunatics to see who can have the biggest, craziest, unconstitutional-iest, knee-jerk reaction. Take for example Donald Trump who again reiterated how this wouldn't happen if we'd just stop taking immigrants from 'terrorist' nations-which is not a thing. If there were entire countries of terrorists with flags and Fodor's guides, it would be easy, you'd know where to find them but that's not how this works.

Hey, remember that time he went after
Bill Clinton for having an affair, while
totally having an affair of his own?
And here, check out Newt Gingrich's plan to out-crazy Donald Trump:

"...and let me be as blunt and direct as I can be. Western civilization is at war. We should frankly test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported."

-Newt Gingrich being as blunt and
frank as he, or really anyone could
possibly ever be, about anything ever

Anyway, leaving aside the ridiculous illegality of religiously-based profiling and the dubious reasoning that connects all Muslims with terrorism, isn't a 'Sharia-test' like, super flawed from the get go? First of all, Sharia is a bunch of religious laws and not the same thing as a terrorist agenda, but let's say Gingrich, despite the statistical improbability, actually managed to get someone who was an ISIS terrorist into an interrogation room and asked them if they supported ISIS, wouldn't a clever terrorist you know, lie about it?
"Ok, if you are a terrorist please fill in this bubble here with a #2 pencil
and please, be sure to fill it in completely or the Scantron might miss it."
