Is this a good thing or a bad thing? I have no opinion.

Militant Islam better watch it: there is only one demographic group more vicious and more hell-bent on keeping their comfort zone comfortable, and that is van-driving soccer mums. These women will kick more ass than cranky old white guys, I can assure you. The Republicans are very wise to mobilise this base, because this base will dropkick medieval islam into outer space.
