    • Earfatigue Productions: When it has to sound like you give a shit.
Never mind, it was a non-starter.

Quote
Peter King, the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, held his long-awaited hearing on Muslim radicalization yesterday... It was a dud.

In a press conference afterward, King blamed the media for having built up "baseless" expectations of Islamophobic McCarthyism. He accused his critics of "mindless hysteria." But that isn't what happened. The press expected a broad indictment of the Muslim community because that's what King had promised. But he didn't deliver.

Well, his former IRA shinanigans came out straight away.  He probably thought he could fearmonger his way through something like this.  And he was probably very nearly right.
