To every Sunny and Sonny who reside in the United States... Take Heed!! In the land of George W. Bush, Alberto Gonzales and Robert Mueller, Y-O-U are most likely a terrorist. And the moment your misspelling, mispronouncing FBI, CIA and Justice Department hear your name, they could be coming after Y-O-U!!

Indeed, should anyone in America incomprehensibly require further convincing of how feckless the United States Government is and how goofy and uninformed cable news is, here's an excerpt from an exchange earlier today between CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Marlene Phanor, sister of Stanley Grant Phanor, aka "Brother Sunni," one of Florida's supposed seven "home-grown terrorists":

Blitzer: Is your brother a Muslim?

Ms. Phanor: No, sir. He's a Catholic.

Blitzer: Does he go to church?

Phanor: Yes, he goes to church. He's a Catholic. We enter St. Mary's Catholic Church on 75th and Second Avenue.

Blitzer: Is he very political, your brother? Does he have strong political views?

Ms. Phanor: No. I can't really say that.

A few inconsequential questions later, Blitzer goes on to ask:

Blitzer: Why does the government say he [your brother Stanley Phanor] is also known as "Brother Sunni"?

Ms. Phanor: They all call themselves 'brothers'. Why, I don't know... but the whole little group calls themselves 'brother'.

Blitzer: Did you ever hear your brother being called "Sunni"?

Ms. Phanor: Yeah. That's his nickname. It's not "Sunni". It's "Sunny"... like it's a sunny day. Yeah, that's his name.

Blitzer: So the confusion is he was called Sunny and not Sunni... because as you know Sunni is one of the religious groups in Islam.

Ms. Phanor: No, I didn't know that but now that I know... no it's not for that. That's his nickname and it's spelled S-u-n-n-y... as in sunny day. That's his nickname ever since birth....

So there it is... further proof that the government of George W. Bush can't read, can't spell and can't pronounce... and that CNN's Wolf Blitzer, as blowback for abandoning his pre-interview responsibilities, is a giant broadcast buffoon.
