The Frightened Senator

Aw, my worst senator (yes, I think he's even worse than St. Sleazy McCain) Jon Kyl is scared:

Sen. Jon Kyl said he doesn't "feel totally safe" with Janet Napolitano at the helm of the Department of Homeland Security, given that agency's handling of the attempt to blow up a Detroit bound airliner.

"I don't feel totally safe" Kyl said.

Poor senator Kyl doesn't feel safe in the world because terrorists still exist. In short, the terrorists have achieved their goal with him: he's terrorized.
Jon, I want to let you in on a little secret: life isn't safe, and it always ends up with dying. Man up, grow some stones, and realize that, as a senator, you're supposed to show a little courage. OK, I know you're a rethug and fear is your marketing strategy, but you're acting like a whiny child faced with a bully instead of some sort of leader. You don't feel safe? Maybe you should stay home with your mommy.
(added slogan: "you're 99% safe everywhere, you're not 100% safe anywhere")

i have been thinking about this, its pure fear mongering by everyone involved. nobody in authority is telling Americans to take it easy, have some perspective, put it in context. another incompetent wannabee martyr-terrorist fails in bringing down a flight, not good, sure, but civilizational threat needing strong leadership to protect from? hardly. obamas playing the role, and gop is critiquing his ability to do any event, americans are still more likely to die on the way to the airport in car wrecks, heart attacks, etc than to be taken out by a Bin Laden follower, but that pundits on cable refuse to point this out.
