Any volunteers?

So, Matt Lauer, morning clothes horse on NBC, is talking to some terrorism expert about the dude who tried to set off the bomb in The Only City That Matters Times Square.

The terrorism guy said that it did look, in fact, like Faisal had been recruited by the Pakistani Taliban, despite all his neighbors back in Waziristan talking about what a quiet boy he'd been.

"Recruited?!" says Matt, "I thought he volunteered! But, I mean, wouldn't there be a test or something?" at which point I blurted at the screen:
"If you really wanted to join the P.F.J., you'd have to really hate the Romans."

"I do!"

"Oh, yeah? How much?"

"A lot!"

"Right. You're in."

Did you see the hysterical NYT story about the dude having a Kel-Tec carbine in his car?

Or the hysterical WP editorial about how the NRA is a bunch of terrorist supporters because they oppose stopping people on the terrorist watch list from purchasing guns?

Horrible that real life is now but a pale reflection of Monty Python movies and skits.

Y'know, I think I'd volunteer to un-retire for the opportunity to school some tango on grammar and syntax...

However, like it or not, he is the president. For a few more years, anyway.
