Peter King is a Dick

Persian American intellectual and a minor crush of mine, Reza Aslan, just put it out there last week on Colbert.  Long Island Representative Peter King is a dick.

King “represented” my family’s district for many years until redistricting, thankfully, put us in The Honorable Carolyn McCarthy’s camp. King’s recent attack hearings on the radicalization of Muslims in America is an old attention seeking tactic for a once known friend of Nassau County’s Islamic community.  Peter King joins the ranks of a long line of illustrious Long Islanders like Amy Fisher, Lindsay Lohen, and Jwoww.

If Tom Friedman and Carrie Bradshaw had a Baby…

“How can Islam get to its future, if its past is its present?”

“Later that day I got to thinking about global civilizational warfare. There are wars that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that take you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant clash of all is the one you have with your own civilization. And if you can find a civilization to love the you that you love, well, that’s just fabulous.”

“Maybe Arabs and Israelis aren’t from different planets, as pop culture would have us believe. Maybe we live a lot closer to each other. Perhaps, dare I even say it, in the same ZIP code.”

“The Jacuzzi was nearly full when Ayman al-Zawahiri, former surgeon and now Al Qaeda’s head of operations, slid in.”
