Mark's Found His Mojo!

Errant Cornerite Mark Steyn rarely disappoints for long. This piece gets style points for outsourcing its requisite useless analogy.

But the following is sublime:

I take your point. If Senator Craig had gone into the stall, rolled out his prayer mat, yelled "Allahu Akbar!" and been observed attempting to weaponize the ballcock, the undercover cop would have shrugged, "Do I really want to get stuck with another four-week stint in Sensitivity Training hell?" and gone about his business.

The non-sequitur reference to Islamic practice, and the insouciant way he slides into an ugly equivalence between Islamic practices and cruising airport men's rooms, and managing to combine a reference to terrorism with the use of the term "ballcock!" - all that PLUS the PC gracenote at the end of that bit - this is the mark of a true virtuoso. Thanks for showing us how it's done, Mark!
