The Secretary who cried al Qaeda

Apparently someone needs to brush up on their kiddie stories....
As cliche as it is for a liberal to allude to a Michael Moore documentary, more and more every day I can't help but agree that Americans are being beat to a psychological pulp. If it's not an orange alert one day, it's a "generalized warning" the next.
My new favorite fear-mercial is the Coppertone campaign about just walking outside and getting skin cancer. (It's actually one of their Flash animations on their home page). This woman talks about how her mother used to let her play outside without suntan lotion, and then when she was 40-something she developed skin cancer. Now she slathers her kids, her husband, herself, and everyone she knows (her dog Killer?) with Coppertone brand lotion (but of course) before they step out of her panic room she calls a home.

Just after I wrote this I looked at Eric Alterman's blog Altercation (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/3449870/), and he discusses the same thing...at about the same time I did. Woah.
