The Burkas Are Coming, the Burkas Are Coming!


Over on MSNBC, GOP chair Ken Mehlman just warned that “if you’re a woman in this country, the threat of Islamofascism is especially alarming.”

Which country? Afghanistan, where women are being driven back under the burkas and back into the compounds? Iraq, where rapes and other crimes against women are on the rise and have gone almost totally unreported by the U.S. media?

Nope, that’d be the good ole USA…
