Running Naked With My Hair on Fire

I found this quotation in the New York Times today:

Unless I set my hair on fire and run naked through the streets - actually, we've already tried it and you haven't covered it - it's very difficult to be heard."
-CHARLIE KING, a Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor in New York.

One frequent complaint by non-Muslims is that Muslims haven't condemned terrorism loudly and/or frequently enough. The old "the silence is deafening" line. And yet, here's a politician running for the second highest office in NY State government complaining that he can't get media coverage either. Remember that the next time someone whines about Muslim "silence."
