My Son and I must be Terrorists

Fox News has hit a new low. I understand peoples fascination over Obama and his wife bumping fists last week. It is not a gesture that is mainstream in America. People associate it with athletes, gamgstas, and young punks. To associate it with Terrorism though is just wrong.

I associate it with one of the first things I taught my son to do. Since then it has evolved into more of an elaborate hand shake, for the two of us, but is started as the simple touching of knuckles. Though thanks to Fox News, and one of the most irresponsible statements I have ever heard, I will now be worried that I will be detained and questioned about my ties to Osama Bin Laden next time my son and I touch knuckles in public.

Though I do give credit to the body language expert that they brought on. She didn't lend any credibility to the terrorist comment, and said if you really wanted to find out what the fist bump meant, you should ask the Obamas. I hope they do. I would love to see Bill O'Riely ask Obama if his fist bump is the secret handshake of his Muslim terrorist cult. To which Obama would then fist bump his face.

Talking that way just lets the terrorists win.
