We're still awaiting that next Spike Jones.  But people with bigger platforms than mine are catching on.
Many of you may be confused by the alternate labels used for the Islamists rampaging through Iraq and Syria. Some call them ISIL, some call them ISIS, and some call them Islamic State.

Right now, they are calling themselves the Islamic State, after previously using the terms ISIS or ISIL.

Now, I don’t really care what they want to be called. I stand with Winston Churchill on this, who was famous for mispronouncing words in the languages of his antagonists, including, of course, France. He’d probably call them “ISIS” and pronounce it “Asses.”

But I do care what our president calls them. Because by using the term ISIL, he is legitimizing their claim to a broader region than they currently occupy.
Well, that's President "Praise Allah and pass the Starbucks."
But this group deserves no respect. That they used to call themselves ISIL should be of no importance to our president.
I'm sticking with Sillies, but "ahsses" also appeals.
