    Watch: Michelle Obama dances with a turnip

    This is crying out to be turned into a “Turn up to vote” campaign. I make the suggestion here because I know how influential you are.

    They don’t even know they’re bigots: There are 1.6 billion Muslims in this world. And a few thousand of them — hell it could be a few hundred thousand of them — are members of the extremist fringe that wreaking havoc in the middle east and causing everyone else to pee their pants. Nobody disputes that these particular Muslims are assholes. But you can’t blame the religion itself when there are more than a billion adherents who aren’t killing anybody and don’t want to kill anybody.

    If he’s going to make an argument like that, he ought to produce some numbers.
