Definition of a terrorist

The McCain/Palin campaign has been hammering on this non-story about Obama's link to Ayers. But this interview seems to do a good job of throwing it back in their faces. Apparently, to Palin, you're not considered a terrorist unless you target government and military targets, so abortion clinic bombers can't be considered terrorists. You know, I always thought that terrorists were, almost by definition, those who went after civilian targets, to cause more, you know, terror. But, of course, I would guess that Palin secretly (or not so secretly) sympathizes with those particular bombers)

And, as an aside, I can't watch this video without thinking about the scene from Chicago with Flynn as the puppet master using Roxy as a ventriloquist's dummy. Wish I had a clip to put up.
