Dodd Harris is a good man and wrote a blog that stayed on my blogroll some 3-4 years after it died in the hopes it would restart, but this whole idea of everyone drawing Mohammad as an act of defiance just sounds so warblogger circa 2003-2004. Which isn’t surprising, because the idea started with the glibertarians at Reason.
But what is it going to accomplish? Can you imagine what would happen if some relatively unknown magazine in Saudi Arabia joke reached out to its readership for them to submit derisive jokes about the trinity?
Nothing. Well, nothing, that is, until some fanatic like Tony Perkins or that idiot at the Catholic League or someone at the NRO got win of it, and then they would whip up the already clearly fanatical people in the US that listen to those bozos. But would it really accomplish anything? Why do we have to actively try to piss people off?
