"I Firmly Oppose Dropping Anvils On People"

The lead headline on CNN.com this morning is "Bush Urges End to Cartoon Violence" referring to Bush calling on world governments to put an end to the Muslim violence associated with the Danish Mohammed cartoons. However, this makes it sound like the President has gone a little crazy, and is waging a war on Bugs Bunny and Wile E. Coyote.

"We gotta stop that little bunny from tying the barrels of a shotgun together so that it blows up in Elmer Fudd's face. That's not right. I also oppose the use of rocket skates to catch birds which are fleet of foot.

If we don't stop that kind of violence, the terrorists win."

It reminds me of an article in The Onion last week: TV Blamed For Rise In Formulaic ViolenceWhich included things such as:
Police nationwide are reporting increases in bullet wounds to the shoulder area that have little effect on the victim's ability to use the affected arm, and a rising number of vulnerable blond women being rescued just in the nick of time by a man wielding a two-by-four who was previously thought to be knocked unconscious.
Perhaps CNN should think a little more before writing such a ridiculous headline instead of just throwing it on after the article is written.
