MORE NAME THING....

MORE NAME THING. This is a bit late, but regarding the wide array of florid names deployed to describe our terrorist enemies, I did just want to note for the record that nobody is more impressive than Marshall Wittman in playing this game. The man puts in effort -- a term like "fascist Jihadism" is a natural for him but it's basically just too easy. When he really gets on a rhetorical roll, no one can touch him, from "death worshiping Jihadists who seek to kill us" to my personal favorite, "seventh century theocratic killer fascists."
