Basque in the glow of his shitty writing

Wow. As I've mentioned before, McSweeney's is hit or miss. Usually I find the authors have tried so hard to be clever they've missed the mark on humor. And then there's today's piece: "Other Ways Terrorists Win" by Justin Paul Villegas.

I haven't been this offended since...hell, I don't know when.

Oh, haha. I get it. People with Muslim names like to blow other people up. Nobody else does that.

I mean, it's not like someone with the last name of Villegas could be a terrorist. Right? No one in the ETA named Villegas. I'm sure of that.
