Rob Delaney swats the tweet:

I’m imagining a group of terrorists sitting around a computer, pulling up a photo of Osama Bin Laden’s corpse, and one saying “WHOA GUYS, if we try to ‘destroy America’ they might try put BULLETS in our FACES. We better knock this malarkey off ASAP. Return that fertilizer to the hardware store and let’s use the fuel we’ve stockpiled to power the generator at my nephew’s school for a few weeks.”

Terrorists, especially of the Jihadi variety, are frequently prepared for and SEEKING death, whether it come in the form of a bullet, explosion, or underpants conflagration on a Detroit-bound flight. But I presume Sarah Palin knows this. So her tweet is both “politicking” and “drama.” It’s theater, in fact.
