Sometimes they need to be mocked

Sarah Palin appeared on Hugh Hewett's radio show Tuesday, where she told us liberals, hey, enough with yer mockin' of Joe Sixpack American's religion also sittin' around the table with gotcha journalism and hockey moms--bless 'em--an' their simple beliefs an' such in this great country of ours an' also you need to walk a mile in their doggone shoes, okay? As a multicultural, PBS watching liberal, I'm all about respecting other people's beliefs, no matter how wrong-headed or just plain stupid they are. Like this:
A Muslim cleric in Saudi Arabia has called on women to wear a full veil, or niqab, that reveals only one eye.

Sheikh Muhammad al-Habadan said showing both eyes encouraged women to use eye make-up to look seductive.

Being challenged in the impulse control area as they are, the men of Saudi Arabia should not have to face the temptations of women who go out in public with both eyes uncovered. Surely, one eye is all they need to stagger around. One of these days, the people of Arabia will get tired of these reactionary boobs making a laughing stock of their nation and religion and join us in laughing at them as we laugh at our own mullahs. Until then, that earthquake you just felt was Mohammad turning over in his tomb.
