Terri Lynn Land flubs basic military and foreign policy question

We start with a description of ISIS, the insurgentarmy currently threatening to destablize Iraq.

The leader of the Islamist fighters sweeping across northern Iraq has been called the heir apparent to Osama bin Laden. But there are big differences between his group - the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham - and bin Laden's al Qaeda

We head over to Terri Lynn Land for comment.

“Well, the president has obviously said that Al Qaeda has, you know, on the run. Well, it’s obviously not true,” Land said during the scrum, according to audio obtained by Progress Michigan. “So the president has to lead, he’s the chief and commander and he needs to lead and show us a vision and a plan on how he’s going to solve the problems and the issues.”

This isn't one of those things where the names of the organizations are basically the same, or that they have a similar name. This is one of those things where the one is a group of insurgents and the other is a series of terrorist cell groups.

That comment was a Palin-esque word salad
Speaking of Princess Dumbass of the Northwoods, I'd pay to watch her, Terry Lynn Land, and Joni Ernst duke it out on Jeopardy!

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.

I had no idea Land was this inarticulate. I can hardly wait for her to debate Peters.

On a tangent about ISIS
Some crazy blogger suggested that the U.S. troops in Iraq would have gotten more respect if they had dressed like Jedi. Then she looked at a photo of the ISIS forces and thought they looked like Jedi.  After reading her "see, I told you so" entry, I responded with ISIS looks like Sith, not Jedi.  All they need are the red-bladed light sabers.

Greetings from Detroit, Ground Zero of the post-industrial future!

Glenn Beck?
Is that you?
