The Terrorists Won

No, this has nothing to do with Obama.

It's about editorialists who slap stuff on paper - lofty prose attached - with not a clue as to what they're trying to convey.

Figure this out.  I'm not smart enough. 

Kathleen Parker, Washington Post columnist, on the fact that America went "insane" after 9/11:
As we reflect on the events of 10 years ago, it would be nice if all sides could resolve to invite America’s better angels back to the huddle. Another terror attack would put things in perspective, all right, but our survival ultimately depends on our willingness to marshal reason and restraint against the emotional terrorism that surely will bring us down.
What does that even mean?  "Emotional terrorism"?  What is that?

I don't know about you but - on this day of all days for her to write such drivel - I'm beginning to think Osama bin Ladin won.
