Burn Noticed

What I find even more irksome than the comically-mustachioed Pastor Terry Jones' plans to host "International Burn A Koran Day" at his tiny FL church on 9/11 is the notoriety that the national media is so readily handing to him.  With seemingly round-the-clock coverage breathlessly weighing the "will he/won't he" question, you'd think this guy is a legitimate, mainstream figure and not a fringe character with a history of extremist rhetoric.  Why bother?  In my view, the only way to respond to such rampant stupidity is to mock it mercilessly, which I was all set to do last night until Jon Stewart tackled the subject on his show, stealing most of my thunder right out from under me. So, well, just watch this:
