US ‘comedian’ on profiling

US comedian and political commentator Dennis Miller offers his take on racial profiling, in an interview with Fox News: “I’m going to say that I scope out the Norwegians on airliners when I get on. But I don’t. If there’s a shaky looking Islamic cat near me, I keep an eye on him. And it’s just like watching the in-house movie. I have all these scenarios running through my head where I’m James Bond and I come upside their right temple with a sugar block as they go up the aisle way. And I’m sorry. I’m a human being. You know, I do Islam a disservice when I don’t point out its failings to it. And the simple fact is, they’ve been blowing a lot of things up lately.”
