What the H-E-Double Hockeysticks is "Salon"?

I thought it was a style magazine.

Wait... Obama is pretty much a fashion piece. And they're definitely in the bag for him. Perhaps I wasn't so far off.

Anyway, here's the second insane article I've seen linked from RCP this week that was published on salon.com ... on this one, the link is:
Palin, Muslim Fundamentalists Are One and the Same - by one Juan Cole.
The sad part is all of the comments saying "way to go, Juan", "we need more people to tell the truth like Juan Cole", and "wake up, people, we've been living in a theocracy for the past 8 years" and on and on and on.

And I'm just scratching my head wondering if there's some parallel universe where any of this makes any kind of sense... and of course there is. It's the universe inside the collective heads of the far Left.

The actual title of the article is: What's the difference between Palin and Muslim fundamentalists? -- Lipstick

Which would be clever if it wasn't so patently absurd. I mean, as I commented on the comments thread, if this is true then why hasn't Bristol been stoned to death by her family?

I mean, imgagine these two scenarios ... You're an agnostic woman. You dress in a hajib and some sort of recognizably Muslim culture form of feminine dress ... walk down the street in an American town full of Christian fundamentalists. What happens to you?

At worst, you get a few funny looks.

Now imagine you're dressed in some sort of modern Western dress, maybe a pair of shorts, or like Sara Jessica Parker, and you're walking through a small Afghani town full of Islamic fundamentalists. Or maybe you're a couple of Christian school girls walking to school.

At best, you get kidnapped or arrested. At worst, your head gets lopped off with a large knife. Perhaps after being raped, since you're an infidel whore and Allah specifically allows it.
